A Prairie Schooler Partridge from Mary
Hello! This is my Very First Post with you all! And here is my Partridge in a Pear Tree from Prairie Schooler, found in 2005 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments. It is also my first Prairie Schooler design! I can see why everybody loves this designer-it is a very nice design I think. I used the recommended colors, stitching on 32 Lakeside Vintage Examplar 2 over 2. It's finished with some calico I had that was just perfect, and my 1st (successful) cord made with my new Kreinik cord maker I got for Christmas. (Does anyone else have one of these? Do you find the 3:1 ratio is accurate? I needed more like 4.5:1 to get the amount of cord I wanted.) However, I love being able to match trim so perfectly and make the cord so quickly and easily! I think I'll use it a lot.
Here's what I have coming up for February! Cottage Garden's Turtle Doves! I like how it is so frosty-wintry. I am doing it on 40 to keep it small as an ornament. Wish me luck!
