I interrupt Linda's reports about her trip to Amy's with an update of my own--I finally finished the last of the candy canes last night! These last two seemed to go very quickly, partly because I think they had the most glitz.
I was so impressed with myself on this ornaments candy cane--I incorporated something I learned from the Stitching Needle Society Christmas Stitches 1 class. If you look at the tops of the gift boxes, you can see the ribbons actually are three dimensional. I used the lazy daisy stitch to give the bows dimension. It was pretty fun to do. I also used Accentuate with Burmilana on these last few candy canes for the background. The Accentuate allowed me to have a nice, open (quick) background stitch, with a little flair.
Oh, & the top photo is what I did LAST weekend. That was a lot of fun too!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day; have a thought for those who served.
