Catching up!!!



Sorry I've been missing in action but I'm back now. I stitched the Santa way back in May but forgot to post a picture. He is from the 2001 Just Cross-stitch Ornament magazine. I loved watching him come to life. He is one of the nicest Santas I've completed.
The other two are from Little House Needleworks. The birds are cream on the chart but I changed them to red. I've been working on them in the past few weeks and today I started Be Merry by LHN too. I shall hopefully finish this by the end of this month and then I will be back on track.

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.
