I realized on Sunday that I only had a short time and the ornament needed finished. So I ran upstairs and grabbed my graph paper and sat down to think. Immediately, my mother's nickname for me popped into my head. She calls me Miss Pickles The Elf. *grins* I pictured making a skinny Elf who looked great in those green tights. HA...in my dreams right? Well, there is nothing wrong with being a chubby Elf. *wink* So here is my rendition on the old addage "A Elf's (woman's) work is never done."
To print the chart, simply click to enlarge and either copy to an email or Word. I forgot to add that I used Carrie's Threads 'Garnet' for red.
I hope you have as much fun stitching this as I had designing it!
I received this photo from Letty with her The Holly and the Ivy ornament finished and hanging on her cupboard door.
Hetty also has completed four of the ornaments so far. She does not have a blog but I can tell you that these are going to be a new addition to her Christmas things for her first Christmas in her new house.
Hetty's The Holly and the Ivy ornament.
Thanks to both of you for sharing your photos. I enjoyed seeing them. Photos can be emailed to the address on my profile page.
My old blog NeedleNecessities is still available and the Primitive ornaments from January through May can be found there.
Remember...it is never too early to start stitching for the holidays...
