Hermit weekend.How I love Kreinik, let me count the ways!

It is time for the Hermit Stitchers weekend update! WOW, where did the weekend go. Poof and it's gone.
I have turned into a Kreinik fiend! Have been using the 032 pearl blending filament with my DMC floss/thread and back stitching with Kreinik #4 braid. AWESOME!!
I had limited time to stitch this past weekend. Still got a bit done. Here is Spirit of the Ornament SAL
before
 After
 I have been struggling with this design. Not my usual taste, but starting to grow on me due to the colors. I am way behind and will work on the suggested blocks each week. Did get the verse straightened out as I was one stitch high on one of the bottom lines.
 I received the letters E,F,G and H for the Lesley Teare SAL. Finally had a chance to start stitching them yesterday. The flowers on the E and F are the same color. Decided to do them both at the same time. Also using Kreinik Blending filament in these.
Michelle has been knitting more creations!
 AMAZING! Michelle knits these with knitting needles that a like hat pins.




I hope spring is in your sights and the snow is not lingering in your neck of the woods.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
