Ornaments

I'd been feeling a bit under the weather over the past few days, achey bones and a sore throat, so gave in yesterday and spent the day at home. I thought that was the best thing to do, rather than spread my germs around, and I'm forever telling my staff and clients if they're sick to go home so thought I'd better take my own advice! Asides from a few half days off work for headaches I can't honestly remember when I last took a sick day. Anyways, today I feel much better, more like myself even though my throat is still a bit raw.

This week I've been working on the SBEBB friendship exchange piece for Christine so I won't be able to show a pic, just yet anyway :) I do have a couple of pics of made up ornies to show today. This is the ornie I stitched for the April exchange with Kath, Chessie & Me's Candy Cane Cat:

Tonight I'll work on 12 Houses since its "Drawn Thread Thursday" and maybe get another house stitched. And some great news, I have the 1998 Just Cross Stitch ornaments magazine coming soon after my friend Wendy won an auction for me on Trademe recently. So now I just have the 1997 issue to find to complete my collection.

I spent some time last night listing up and coming projects in my stitching journal last night: three exchanges ( Redwork and House themed for SBEBB) and a summer themed Biscornu for the Legacy BB, a small wedding sampler for friends getting married late July in Ireland, and a couple of birthday gifts. I'd also like to make a start on the Christmas Blessing Angel somewhere in there :) And for some reason, starting Titania has been on my mind all week but I'm going to try and resist.

Enjoy your day.

Meant to say in my last post, too - your strawberry NR turned out great as well :D I love the colours of it - so vibrant! Good on you having a day off - sometimes that's all that's needed to raise ones spirits when you're not feeling well :) Your ornies look great all finished! :D Looks like you've got a very full stitching schedule ahead!

I love that Chessie & Me ornament and have been wanting to stitch it for quite sometime. Yours is so cute and the finish is perfect!

Looking forward to your progress on 12 Houses!

Love your ornament finishes Katrina! I've done both of those too and they're a fun stitch.

Aww, both ornies are adorable! I already have the Britty Kitty from a friend, but I should stitch the Candy Cane Cat :)

Hope you'll soon feel 100%!
