Ornamentifying....

I had a very productive day today - finishing off (or ornamentifying!) three gifts for family and friends.


Don't Peek by Little by Little (from the 2004 JCS ornament magazine). Stitched on 40 ct Light Examplar from Lakeside Linens with the recommended DMC.


Running Stag by Carriage House Samplings (from the 2004 JCS ornament magazine). Also stitched on 40 ct Light Examplar from Lakeside Linens with the recommended DMC.


Snowflake Cone by Scandinavian Stitches (from the 2006 JCS ornament magazine). Stitched on some Silkweaver evenweave from a treat bag using GAST Blueberry and DMC 931 (I think) for the cording.

Another three for the project challenge!

  5. I agree with Anne - I would never have stitched that cone just on seeing the one in the mag, but I love the colour you chose and I think I might have to steal your colour scheme! All your ornaments look gorgeous but I particularly love the way you finished Running Stag, now another must-stitch!
