Tape weaving

After long time in the corner, my inkle loom was finally dusted. Trying to weave a small tape out of 32/2 cotton/linen blend and 2 strands of embroidery floss in purple. The length is just 9 mm.
The idea is to use it as labels for my handwovens but not sure whether this would work.

I guess, there are 8 reindeers charted by Nora Corbett. I kitted up four of those I like the best and started from Vixen.
It was both Start No 4 and Finish No 4 of 2017 (4 Jan - 1 Feb 2017).
All floss crosses are done.

Some bling added with Kreinik.

In full glory and with all treasures!

Tropical Garden

Victoria Sampler's Tropical Garden Sampler. Start No 5 finish No 2 of 2017 (3-25 January). Fabric - 28ct Zweigart Annabelle cotton in Ice Blue. 

Very time consuming stitch. A bunch of specialty stitches, french knots, ribbons. There are some color changes every sitich and a half. But at the same time it is so pretty. Reminds me of the vacation times. 

The only problem with it - regardless all details it is very small.
