I have been busy the past month!

Here are some ornaments I cross stitched in early Jan.





And here is a blast from the past!  Its Star Lite, Rainbow Brite's trusty horse friend.  Embroidered on a lightweight canvas material using transfer pencils and worked totally in satin and backstitching.



Close up of tail details.



I think this is going to be made into a wall hanging for my 2 year old cousin.  Found a wonderful rainbow fabric a couple weeks ago at Jackman's Fabrics. 

Comments?  Suggestions?

Thanks for looking!

Those ornaments are great - especially the tree - very cool. Great job on all - especially on the satin stitching on the horse.

Excellent job on Star Lite! So bright and cheerful! Always a job to see lovely stitch/color combinations!

As for the ornaments, that tree is just too rad.  Grin

Very nice!! I love both it all! One quick question... what were you stitching on for the ornaments/how did you attach?  Or was it a kit?  Anyways... very beautiful!

The ornaments were all from kits, sadly.  They are called Brass Stitchables and the floss is stitched on metal forms that have grids with holes punched into them.  You can usually find the forms in bookmark size at Hobby Lobby, year-round. 


Thanks for the comments, all!

Wow, Star Lite is so totally awesome!  Rainbow Brite was my absolute favorite show when I was a kid.  You did an amazing job embroidering that.  If you don't mind my asking, where did you find the design?

Not a problem.   I googled starlite in the image search and this came up:



Now, because my printer was out of blue ink, I put the image into paint and removed as much of the color as I could, leaving a coloring-page type image.  Then, I printed.  I traced over the back of the paper with a transfer pencil and ironed it onto the fabric.  On my printout, I just wrote in what color goes where and then went to work!


Hope this helps and makes sense.
