A Ginger Winner

daisychain abc sampler

The winner of the Winter can be Crewel giveaway is motherof2miracles.  She stitched this lovely Daisychain Sampler you see above.  It was fun to know that motherof2miracles was stitching away on this in her home as I did the same in mine.  I'll snap a picture of my own just as soon as this PNW weather brings us a slightly brighter day. (In other words... don't hold your breath.  Reports are for snow this weekend!)

A gingerbread heart mobile kit is on its way to you motherof2miracles.  I'll think of you as I stitch mine up this December!  Who else will be joining us?

Happy Stitching!

Winter can be Crewel

Hello fellow Embroidery Companion embroiderers! 

Here is the November's project, "Snowflake and Pine Tree Hot Water Bottle Covers".  A bit late due to some self inflicted power outages while my husband worked these past few day to replace our main service panel to the house. 

These lovely water bottle covers seem so cozy, yet decadent to curl up with on the cold winter nights. Working with the crewel wool yarn also seems perfect to be stitching in winter.  I love this photo below of little Clover curled up and peeking around.  Daisy's the same way but cuter in my opinion, no offence to Clover or anything!

If hot water bottles aren't your thing you might stitch up one of the motifs to make an ornament for the Christmas tree.

A sneak peak to December... the Gingerbread Heart Mobile.  Those who post new photos into the flickr group between now and November 15th will be entered to win materials to work up this cute holiday decoration.  The photographs can be any one of the many embroidery projects we've done over the course of the year, complete projects or incomplete, it doesn't matter. 

Happy Stitching!
