Christmas Ornaments

I finished the last three of these.  This chart is actually called Miss June, but I turned them into Christmas ornaments instead.  The binding stitch is done on the edges.  I then made twisted cord for the hangers and the back is white felt on each of them.

What the heck?

Hubby has a red Ford Mustang convertible.  He wears driving glasses and this is a croakie for those glasses.  I measured the store bought holder and am going to stitch him a new one as a surprise!

Starting to fil in

I made a lot of progress on the outline stitches.  Just a few more hours and the face will be filled in.

Almost half

The color changes are subtle but they are there.  What a bright orange face this will be!

Filling in the face

The face is all going to be filled in with outline stitch with two strands of Needlepoint Silk.

The finishing

I finally managed to mail the Holly Ornament to Marsye Wray and it came back in less than two weeks!  It has a white satin flat back finish with the white edging and a pale blue bow.  How cute!

The face

Day into Night instructions start with the sun design and the center of the face.  The eyes, nose and lips are tent stitch, the eyes and brows are outline stitch and then the whites of the eyes are tent.  The orange ray out from the top of the nose is outline stitch.  I will be filling the entire center of the face with outline stitches.
