Next Sunday Stitches project

I just finished pulling floss and fabric for the next Sunday Stiches project I will start which is Bells of Christmas Day by With Thy Needle and Thread.  I could see these two bells hung from a pretty wired ribbon bow, with a couple of my vintage ornaments (similar to those shown on the pattern cover) hung from ribbons of varying lengths.  They would also be pretty hanging in the middle of a large wreath but I don’t have anywhere to hang a large wreath or store one for that matter.  Won’t decide how to finish them until they are done and the mood strikes for finishing but I do like the hanging with vintage ornaments idea.  Just depends on how large they end up since mine will be slightly larger than the equivalent of the called for linen.

Bells of Christmas 1-9-22 sunday sttiches

I only had about 5 of the 12 called for colors so substituted from stash for the rest.  The fabric I’m using (which is slightly darker than in the photo – the sun is actually out today despite the frigid temps and it was reflecting off the snow when I dashed outside to get a photo before the camera lens fogged up) is from ToDyeForFabrics, 18 count, and the color is Light Khaki

  1. How about hanging them with ribbon from your curtain rod so they’re in your window? The antique ornaments would sparkle in the light and your stitched bells would be a contrast. Just an idea. Whatever you come up with will be awsome.

    • That would be a good idea for someone with a good window location to put them in . As for me , I don’t really have a good spot for that idea the way my apt is set up.
