Meet the Parson

I'm so happy, happy, H-A-P-P-Y!!! I'm waaay ahead for this Christmas. Errr, never mind I wanted to have this done for last Christmas, lol!


I tea-dyed a linen remnant . And I LOVE it! What are my chances of replicating it??? Hmmm, probably zero...oh well.


This time I didn't put any batting behind the stitchery. Decided I'd go for the flat look. And the frame I found at Hobby Lobby. (That's also where I got this frame.)

Parson Brown by
Notforgotten Farm
fabric: 32ct tea-dyed linen
fibers: DMC


Even though I love him, I guess I'll put him away till next year so he doesn't melt :) He needs to make way for some rabbits...

Well done on your xmas ornie..it is lovely. I have a strange request..I left my e-mail addy on one of your giveaways and I have been getting abuse e-mails..I am sure it is not linked to your site in any way but I am trying to remove all evidence of that addy from all sorts of places where it seems to pop up if you google my name. Would you mind removing it for me? I am sorry and hope you understand..and of course please dont feel you have to show this post. It was giveaway 5. Thank you for your understanding (((hugs0))
