Joy to the World

Hello!
Firstly I just wanted to say thank you for letting me join you all on this wonderful blog!  I have really enjoyed following along with all the beautiful ornaments you all have stitched.

So a little introduction, my name is Khristine and I am from Prince Edward Island Canada.  I have a wonderful boyfriend of 15 years and we have 2 awesome boys, 6 and 2.  Right now I am a stay-at-home mom so I get to enjoy stitching pretty much all day and I am not looking forward to going back to work in a couple years but I will worry about that when the time comes.

I was so excited for my first ornament that I couldn't wait and stitched it in December :)

It is a freebie from La Comtesse & Le Point De Croix.  The fabric was dyed by me as was the red thread.  The green thread is Moss by Fiberlicious.  I think I overdid it with the wild hand dyed fabric but it is starting to grow on me.  But I promise from now on my ornaments won't be so busy. 

I am not sure if I should just leave the ornament like this or add some red felt behind it.  This was all I had left of this color but if I did add felt I think I would use this shade of red.

.

Happy Stitching,
Khristine
