Poinsettias

Did you know that there was no t in poinsettia? I always thought it was pointsettia. Go figure. I started this ornament on a ecru colored linen, then after one petal decided that it was going to be too big. So I started a second on whe white evenweave (top poinsettia) It doesn't look smaller but it is. After I finished it I went back and finished the other for a christmas exchange. I was going to go buy the beads that the ornament called for, Mill Hill 02012. But first I checked my stash of maybe 10 different beads....Lo and behold I had the exact beads! I love it when that happens.

Thats awesome when you end up having the beads you need. I had that happen with my ornaments this month. I like your poinsetta's. :)

This is one of my favorite designs from this year's JCS.

Those are both lovely! How do you plan to finish them?

I think people tend to say "poinsettia" with a "t" after the "n", hence the desire to spell it that way. My MIL says it "PONN-a-sett-a"...and corrects me when I say it the right way. :)

I thought it was pointsettia for a long time, too! Glad to know I'm not alone. They turned out to be quite lovely, both of them. :)
