Christmas Biscornus and more

Thank you so much for those who stopped by and left comments on my "NOEL Ornaments" and sent me e-mails. It is so interesting to read your messages, they are so inspiring! I did not have much time for visiting blogs - sorry. But I will keep up with reading your blogs and visiting blogs of my new visitors during the next two days.
A special thank you for those who bought my designs. I do hope you enjoy stitching them.
* * * * * * Today I will show you some more Christmas projects which I designed and have been working on for the last two weeks. My husbands wants me to write that he has been helping me very hard :-). He sure has :-). My dear husband is my first and very strict critic, he also has a title of my personal artistic adviser.
Here is the picture of some projects which I stitched up:
The projects belong to two themes: "Love" and "Hearts & Snowflakes". These designs differ in style from "NOEL Ornaments". Besides, there are a few specialty stitches in the new designs, and I used DMC Precious Metal Effects and some Mill Hill beads to add some sparkle to the projects.
Here are some pictures of "Love" Biscornu:
I also made this pattern into an ornament and I have already sent it off to one of my friends:I also made a design for an Icicle ornament in this theme but did not have enough time to stitch it. I will do it later because I think these icicles look great on a Christmas tree.
And here are pictures of "Hearts & Snowflakes" Biscornu:

"Hearts & Snowflakes" Icicle ornament, its top and bottom views:I enjoyed working on these themes: these vibrant colors do create a Christmas spirit, don't they?

If you are interested in buying any of my designs, send me an e-mail please.
My address is in my profile.

Happy & Merry stitching to everyone!

Оля, как же ты прекрасно провела эти две недели! И какой замечательный помощник твой муж. Он действительно заинтересован тем, что ты делаешь и полностью поддерживает тебя. Это дорогого стОит! Передавай ему мой большой респект! Видимо, бискорню - твой фаворит в малых формах, и они действительно замечательно получаются у тебя! Желаю тебе удачи и успеха в дальнейшем творчестве!

Дизайны просто великолепные получились! Какие елочки нарядные! И пендибульчик уж ооочень понравился! Как здорово, что муж поддерживает, а не просто терпит Ваше хобби)) Без него дизайны не были бы столь наполнены любовью ;)

Gorgeous designs Olga!!!

Dani - tkdchick said...

You're coming up with some gorgeous stuff! Wow!

Just the opinion of an opinionated stitcher... can't stand the DMC metallic fibers they are such a pain to stitch with. Have you thought of using just Kreinik #4 braid or even trying Rainbow Galleries Petite Treasure Braid? Now that's a treat to work with!

VALIE said...

I love your Xmas ornaments, they look very precious, not sure I would be able to perform such brilliant finish. Do you supply instructions ?

Olenka's Stitches said...

Hi Valie,
Instructions on assembling, finishing and sometimes some tips on cross stitching are included with the charts. Besides, you can always write to me to ask for advice, I will be happy to help you. :-)Have a try!
Happy Stitching,
