It’s pretty rare that I’m truly stitching for myself these days. I’m usually busy with stitch guides and projects for Needlepoint.Com. But, with Christmas deadlines looming, I was determined to get a piece in for myself done! It’s so nice to stitch without having to keep accountability of thread colors and quantities.
It’s so crazy to think that it’s time to start thinking about ornaments for next Christmas. With finishing deadlines coming up in August, it really is time to start stitching. Where has the year gone already!?
If you’ve been following along for a little while, you’ll know that one of my all time favorite things to add to a needlepoint canvas is Ribbon Work. It creates such a striking effect on your canvas, without much work! Once you know the basics, it is such a fun way to embellish your canvas and bring it to life.
