Mega Mini Month Madness - week 5!

Posting early again!

I've been hard at work on my cute witch ornament, and stitching on the perforated paper is more fun and easier than I expected!  I finished all the parts that are done on the silver paper (hat, spider, and wand) and I've made a good dent in her dress too.  All the blue is sparkly, so it's super shiny!

Unfortuately, I had to double up the dark blue Kreinik since it's unusually soft and has very light coverage for a #4 braid, so I'm almost out of it.  The lighter blue is also a #4 but covers fine with just one strand.  I'll still stitch as much as I can since there's a bunch of DMC to be added as well, but I'm a little sad that I went through the dark blue so fast.  I must have used that color on something else recently but I can't remember exactly what it was!  Maybe a mermaid?

But yes, I highly recommend these cute Brooke's Books ornaments!  The colors are so nice and I'm really enjoying stitching on the paper. :)


  1. Can't wait to see what this looks like stitched up! I hate using metallics of any kind so kudos to you for using it.

  2. Oh this is so darling! I can't wait to see it finished!

  3. Your witch looks gorgeous so far. It must seem strange creating a cross stitch that you are going to layer-up into an ornament. :)

  4. Love your witch! I bought the job lot of ten that Brooke was doing as a special offer. I was thinking of stitching the main part on aida and only the accessories on the paper (to save money!) as I intend to scrapbook them when they are finished. Belinda the Bat Witch/Vampire looked great when I did her.


I love comments! If you have a blog, leave me a link so I can follow you. :)
