Finished Little House Needleworks

Today I completed Little House Needleworks design - Sleigh Bells Ring.  I did use the DMC conversion on this but for the brown 433 I used 433, 434, and 435 blending them to make the variegated look.  It was fun and I like how it worked.  I'm going to finish it with some red plaid fabric and twine to hang, but not right away.  Busy Stitching WIPs! :)   Hope you are all having a great week!!  :)

  3. Very cute finish. That's a trick I often use with DMC. Sort of a pain but works really well. Yours looks great!
