I *heart* Harvey!

I made myself finish an ornament this morning. And I LOVE Harvey! I love red and white. I love snowmen. All the finishing stuff came from my stash (and I love that!)

Heartfelt Harvey by

Imaginating, Inc.

JCS 2008

fabric: 32ct oyster linen

fiber: Needle Necessities #1531

back:
This is a Valentine print,
but I think it works :)

Ribbon I bought "just because". It's elasticized which made it really easy to use.


One ornie down. A couple of finishings I have in mind require a trip to Hobby Lobby. And maybe Michaels. Darn ;)

Parson Brown is by Notforgotten Farm. Apologies for not including that. I've also got Jingle All the Way by Notforgotten Farm...so if I ever get PB done...

Love the color thread you used. The thread called for in the magazine is too bright. Great finishing also. love the ribbon. BTW-Did you get my email last week?

I *HEART* Harvey too. Just love those Needle Necessities threads. So glad Threadworx has picked up on their collection and is keeping the line going.
Hope you survive that torturous and agonizing trip to Hobby Lobby and Michaels...the sacrificies we must make for stitching!!!
