I began stitching the third ornie, "He's A Flake," on Monaco, as well, and then decided that I would switch to the charted Linen, which I had in my stash, and I am so glad that I did, as it looks perfect on the Dove background.
My plan is to stitch the ornaments, and then my Mom is going to teach me how to finish them. Yes, dear friend, I am finally learning to use my sewing machine, and thanks to a mother who has spent her entire life enjoying everything hand crafted I will now become friends with the beast of burden, known as my Brother sewing machine. When your Mom can run any sewing machine both blind folded and with her hands tied behind her back, who needs to learn the patience required to sew, right? Wrong! So, I will now be biting the bullet and turning to Mom. Once again, we realize that family is everything.
