Two Photos!

The first photo is designed by Jody! This is one of the pieces I picked up on the trip to Michigan. I have a sister who loves Holly and she chose this piece for me to stitch for her. When I contacted Jody of Jody Designs, she told me she designs a lot of Holly patterns as that is her daughter's name! You can see more of her great designs at http://www.jodydesigns.com/. She told me that you can purchase this same canvas, along with many others directly from her by emailing her directly at: jodydesign@aol.com (note, no s on the email addy!). She is working on a website that will be up with a full catalog download soon!

So, I have been using all tent stitch on this piece. The top of the ornament is worked in Kreinik #12 (I am using all #12) 002J, gold. The white background is 032, the dark red on the holly berry is 308, and the first green is 008.

And then, I got a note from Mom! She said Mornin Luv looked like he was blind! Oooohhhhh, Nooooo! She said I had to go back and fix his eyes, using a darker color and putting the iris in his eye with a French knot. Yes, Mother. So, I did, and you know how mothers are always right???

You decide.
Yup, she was right!

P.S. Jane wants to know about his slippers. Yes, they are supposed to be fuzzy, but not bunnies!

I love these Jody things - they are so simple, yet effective and pretty. Well painted also.

I looked at the full sketch of the Morning Luv guy and found the note about fuzzy pink slippers written on it. So they are going to be pretty hilarious slippers!

And they look suspiciously like mine....

Jane, wondering if Pat's Mom has peeked into my closet here in CH

Hi Pat,

Jody's designs are a lot of fun! I have quite a few in my stash that I'm looking forward to working.

Morning Luv is very funny!

I'm so flattered. I will enjoy watching you stitch this ornament. Thank you for the great "PR" too.
A wonderful Blog for stitchers, I'm so pleased you contacted me.
