September Ornament

For my September ornament choice I decided to go with my favourite out of this year's Just Cross Stitch Ornaments magazine - I just sneaked in to get all the stitches done, I didn't quite have a full skein of the GAST Blue Jay thread.


Windows of Faith, Hope & Peace by Primrose Needleworks
2010 Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornaments magazine
fabric: 32ct cream belfast
thread: recommended Blue Jay Gentle Art Sampler thread


I decided to go with a simple pillow finish using some sparkly blue and silver fabric and lace from my stash, and buttons found in the button collection at work. Its definately very handy that we have 100's and 100's buttons to choose from :)
