Just wanted to hop on here for a minute and share my latest creation, which became our new doorhanger this yr. I am very happy w/the way it turned out. I finished it a couple of wks. ago and decided that since it ended up being a really good size, I would hang it on our front door for all to see.I stitched it on 10 ct. White Birch Heatherfield fabric that they no longer make, using all #8 Pearl Cotton, mostly WDW overdyed threads. I love the little flecks of color in this fabric and think it gives a more rustic look to it. Most of you know that I can't seem to leave the color chart alone, so I changed up the colors just a bit and also added the silver metallic pearl cotton in several places to give it more zip. (Santa's beard however, doesn't show up too well and I even changed it for a brighter white).
