Another Finish and Recommendation

The first Heritage II club ornament is finished. This is a Kelly Clark design with stitch guide by Alison Hodgkiss of A Stitch In Time. Had a fun time stitching this canvas. Looking forward to my second one arriving soon.


I am thinking of having this ornament finished with the sides gusseted and a black and white fabric on the back with a Mackenzie Childs feel to it and of course ribbon on the top.

In the Spring last year I sent Fireside Stitchery about 150 to 175 canvases to sell on eBay for me. This week I received my first check from them for the 51 canvases that have been posted on eBay and sold. I was so happy with my check. I could not believe how much my canvases sold for. I was thinking I would get the amount of that check for all the canvases. They are posting between 10 to 12 of my canvases a week. I am so looking forward to my next check. Denise has use Fireside also to sell canvases and is also extremely happy. We both highly recommend using Fireside to sell your unwanted canvases. I will be going through my stash and sending more to Fireside.

Off to decorate for Easter. Will post pictures tomorrow.

Hi, Linda - the ornament is absolutely beautiful! I can't believe how quickly you stitched it. I like your finishing idea. I think the gusseting will make it more substantial. Glad you got your first check for your eBay items. What fun!

Thanks for the tip about Fireside's resale service. I've been thinking about it, not that I have 150 canvases to clear out -- just want to take the stash pressure off my stitching arm! Having a bit of thread cash to spend would be lovely also.
