Ornie addicted?

I'm really enjoying working on these ornies and I'm afraid not much else is being achieved on the stitching front, they're just so quick and stress free compared to the big projects I have going.

I was hoping to "finish" as I went, but that hasn't proved possible this month. I guess that gives me time to see all the different finishes here and perhaps do something a little out of the ordinary.

So here's my offering for March:
Catch A Falling Flake (by Vivian Bales in The Gift of Stitching, December 2006)
32# natural belfast linen
DMC threads (different shades than listed) + DMC E5200 (I don't think I really like the light effects thread, I found it really difficult to work with, it's so stiff!)

Red Berries (by Rosewood Manor in The Gift of Stitching, December 2006)
32# natural belfast linen
DMC threads (different shades of red and green than listed)
Mill Hill petite beads 42043
I looove this design and am planning to make it just a few more times in different colourways.

Woodland Joy (by Something in Common Designs - freebie)
32# antique white belfast linen
DMC threads as listed
I've seen this a couple of times so far, it was such a sweet design I had to have one for myself. For some reason owls and Christmas seem to go together to me (everyone else thinks I'm nuts but it makes sense to me!).

WOW you have been beavering away on ornaments. They're all lovely. I love the owls.

I'm with you...ornaments are addictive! The rest of my stitching has suffered too. :) Love all your finishes.

Your ornies are wonderful and frankly I think stitching them is so much more fun than finishing them. I bet I have to do an all-finishing-weekend in November. :)

Beautiful ornies I really love the tree as well!!!

Woodland Joy is cute, I stitched it myself years ago!

We have the same tastes in ornaments! I did red berries last month and the other two you stitched this month are on my must do list!

They look wonderful!

All three are wonderful! I just finished the owl ornament myself. It is so sweet!
