Well, this one seemed to take forever to do, and I haven't done the finishing, but here's my ornament for the SAL. Cute isn't he?!
It's Santa Star by Lavender Wings from the 2002 JCS ornament issue. I didn't do all the backstitching as I didn't think it added anything (and I hate backstitching!) and I left off the stars as I want to make it into a star-shaped ornament. It's stitched on a bit of Silkweaver linen from a treat bag - I think it's 28ct.
I'm not counting it towards the project challenge until I finish it off but I was too tired yesterday. One of the neighbours had a teenage party that was incredibly loud. We rang noise control (we weren't the first to ring apparently!) and they came round, but it started up again as soon as the guard left of course. By the time they eventually got them under control I think it was almost 4am. I actually fell asleep in the end. Alcohol, a horde of bored teenagers, summer holidays, cars and nowhere to go, a really hot night and probably drugs by the sound of the screaming and absolute hysterics make for one big party... It was VERY quiet over there yesterday!
