June ornie

This month's ornie is "Winter Love" by SamSarah Design Studio from JCS 2007 Christmas Ornaments. I stitched it on black for the simple reason that it was the only piece I had that was close in count and size to stitch this one on. Because it was stitched on black, I changed the hat on the snowman on the right from DMC 3799 to a dark green so that it would not get lost on the fabric.

May/June Ornament & Card

Hi Everyone,
As I was away on holidays the first half of May and sick the second half I am a bit behind with my ornaments. Although I did manage to stitch 2 cards, which are from the Christmas Miniatures Leaflet by The Prairie Schooler, stitched on 25 count Evenweave with DMC threads.
I'm not sure how I will 'ornamentify' the beautiful bird yet, he is from the JCS 2004 Christmas Ornaments issue by Blackbird Designs. Stitched on 32 count ivory Jobelan with DMC threads and Kreinik gold for the stars.
For those of you who have the pattern I left out the Noel (noelle) because my DH asked why the bird's named Noel. Men!!
Happy Stitching, Sue in Australia.

My blog is one of the monthly featured blogs this month. It cheered me up no end, even though my blog hasn't had much stitching featured for a while.

June ornament

Okay, so I know I've only managed to finish two ornaments so far this year but trust me that's two more than last year!
My June ornament is by Angel Stitchin and is called Christmas Joy. It's from one of the JCS ornament issues. I can't remember which issue right now but if anyone is interested I can look up the year. I'd like to finish it as a pillow ornament.

Lizzie Kate Ornament finish

I thought I would do another PEACE ornament for June. This is a Lizzie Kate chart. I added white beads between the zig zag at the top. Very hard to see in the picture. I will finish this one like a pinkeep. Have a great day stitching ...laurel
