I love the idea of the Bride's Tree ornaments, but I wanted to add the tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. So this is what I came up with:
Something Old -- the tradition of the Bride's Tree ornaments.
Something New -- the fabric is the new
Something Borrowed -- borrow can mean to take something and make it one's own, so I borrowed patterns and made some changes in color and design to make it my own
Something Blue -- in each design I will include the color blue (DMC 930, 931, and/or 932)
I think that I will stitch the back of the ornament with the word "Shelter" , the date, and my initials. I do have a question. How and where do you "sign" your work? Do you stitch your initials or full name? Do you use numbers or letters for the month? Where do you stitch them? I have been trying to make up my mind about this and decided I would like some help.
I am looking forward to Saturday, they are calling for flurries. I love to see snow. We had flurries earlier in the week. There was ground cover but in a few hours it was gone. If it snows I will try to get pictures. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.
