I stitched this one over two on 36 count white linen with the called for 926 DMC. I chose to leave off the top of the pattern. I just wanted the Holy Family. I knew I wanted to make this into an ornament in this shape. I used the fabric you see this lying on to back this with. I will be stitching this up again.
June you have a few bulbs shooting up by you and Inna you have green grass with dandelions! We will be waiting a long time for these things! I took a picture yesterday of the water falls that give our village it's name.
A powerful novel of friendship set in a traveling circus during World War II, The Orphan's Taleintroduces two extraordinary women and their harrowing stories of sacrifice and survival
Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier and being forced to give up her baby. She lives above a small rail station, which she cleans in order to earn her keep… When Noa discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she is reminded of the child that was taken from her. And in a moment that will change the course of her life, she snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night.
Noa finds refuge with a German circus, but she must learn the flying trapeze act so she can blend in undetected, spurning the resentment of the lead aerialist, Astrid. At first rivals, Noa and Astrid soon forge a powerful bond. But as the facade that protects them proves increasingly tenuous, Noa and Astrid must decide whether their friendship is enough to save one another—or if the secrets that burn between them will destroy everything.HERE
Today I will finish stitching Brian's ornament. Maybe even do the finishing on it too.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Stay warm my friends. I hope you have a fantastic, stitchtastic week!
Stitching and praying,
