June ornament!

I just finished my ornament for June.  It's Rocking Horse by Mill Hill.   I made it for a friend of mine who is expecting a baby in December.

Colleen's May Ornament


As I forgot to post my ornie for May, in the month of May, can we say 'Better late than never'? I love how this finished. One of my favorite charts, "It's Snow Cold" by Little House. I switched out the fabric & used floss from my stash. A quick & fun stitch. Now off to stash dive to find a June ornament to stitch. Have a super month & happy stitching!

I finished in the nick of timeď

I seem to always procrastinate and finish these on the last day of the month!   I'm glad we have this SAL because otherwise I wouldn't finish these ornaments.   Here is Cat in the Box by Mill Hill.   I made it for my 8 year old daughter.

Kaye's May choice

Hi all, as you may have realised, I post on this SAL blog in tandem with my Christmas Ornie SAL blog (which is why this reindeer is popping up all over the place - lol!).  So, this month, I finished my second Nordic ornament from PS Book #192 for theMay theme of "Reindeer".

Isn't he a proud, handsome fellow?



He is a companion piece to the April theme of "Ornament".


It is so lovely to see everyone's Christmas Ornaments all year long.

hugs, Kaye

Laineys May Choice!


This month I am doing a design from the JCS 2001 Christmas Ornament magazine called "Aschenklaus" by Carol Emmer Designs. You wouldn't think by the picture but there are 30 thread colours in this. I can't wait to get started.
