January Ornie


I have a few different projects going that need to be finished by the end of the month, so I also jumped in a bit early to stitch my January ornament. I stitched Winter's Eve by Country Cottage Needleworks. It's from the 2006 JCS Ornament issue.

I stitched it using the suggested fabric (28-count natural Cashel) and fibers (DMC, WDW, and CC). It took just over 7 hours of total stitching time.

I'm doing a private ornament RR with a few of my stitching friends. This is the design I chose to kit up for everyone. Being in this RR and this SAL should really help me meet my goal to stitching more ornaments this year.

That's lovley! That's one of the designs I'm going to stitch, just can't make up my mind whether to do that one first, or to do Pine Tree Hill from JCS Oct.2006.
