Miniature frames for my dad's dollhouse as Yuletide gifts.I purchased 3 miniature wooden frames from Creative Muster on Etsy, they are extremely well made (I haven't been able to find any this good anywhere else).
Cross stitched with left over linen & left over stranded cotton, frame stained with brushed corduroy distress ink & finished with gold coloured brads.
Blackwork with French knots using leftover cottons and linen, frame gilded with gilding flakes and finished with pearl brads.
Scrap of printed material, flowers and leaves stitched over using left over stranded cotton in long stitch, frame coated using permanent gold marker and finished with a bronze coloured brad.
My lovely OH bought me this kit from Wilkinson, easy & quick to stitch, we have two of these little fellas on our tree. I wanted to get some others (they had other animals) but unfortunately they had sold out.
