Santa Bell Wreath 3

This first photo is what I had finished up to Friday morning. I was hoping to have this one fully back stitched and the next one started by today but my insomnia which had been hiting me so no stitching was done on Sunday. And the backstitching was not finished all that's left is some green backstitching and  beading. The beading won't happen until all six are stitched. Hard to work on the rest off them with the beads there. The thread tends to snag on them. 

Hopefully the backstitching will be done soon and next one started.

Santa bell wreath 2

First sorry my pictures aren't of the best quality no longer have great lighting. My boys broke the stand on my good one do back to using sunlight and not so great table lamp. Medical bills are to high to even contemplate buying a new one. Some day we're be out from under theses damn bills.. I hope.
These stich up relatively fast and I would have gotten farther but the Game ofThrones  episode we were watching last night got intense and so it was put away. Probably will have this first of six done pretty fast what's left is his arm beard face and hat. Well then backstitching debating about when to bead it, after the backstitching is done or after all six are done and bead them all then. Hmm can't decide.

Santa bell wreath 1

And I have a new start!
Does not look like much yet but it's a start! Now I have already change one thing with this kit. The supposed dark red thread looked almost exactly like the medium thread which from the picture of the kit it's not suppose to be like that at all! 

Thankfully I have s lot of extra thread given to me for Christmas from my husband so I was able to find a darker red that I feel worked well with the other refs in the kit. It is the darker red in my first picture. I also plan to try some embroidery soon snd may even try to sell some on my etsy shop (rainbowkitties). If and when I make some I'll post it up on here and my Instagram account (sweetgeekmomma).

Bird Joy 4

I am actually a lot farther then this now, but I'm not home and I lov taking pictures of my project after the msin stitches are done and before the backstitching is done. 

I am always amazed at how big of a difference backstitching makes. Next post should have this project fully torched but probably not finished. More work is needed to put make it into an ornament. 🙂

Bird Joy 3

Ok I think I made up for the lack of stitching the last two weekends. I've been bored out of my mind because hubby is still not well enough to go out and do much yet.

Hoping this changes soon because I  admittingly loosing some of my sanity because of it, but hey I got  a lot done and since Christmas is less then six months away I need to keep in stitching up all of my Christmas presents!
