The rest of my June ornaments

Talk about chalk and cheese the weather this weekend - we've enjoyed a beautiful winter's day here today so DH, Hannah and I have made the most of being able to get out in the sunshine. We spent a few hours pottering around the garden, pulling out weeds(!!) and making some plans for some pre-spring projects for a few areas in the gardens. Then this afternoon Hannah and I headed out for a walk to the one of the local fruit and vege shops, we haven't been out for a Sunday walk in quite a few weeks.

I have a few Christmas stitches to share today, I'm beginning to get quite a pile of ornaments that need to be finished so I really must do something about that, ha ha!

First up, is one of my favourite designs from last year's Just Cross Stitch ornaments magazine. I started this while I was away last weekend and after a few hours stitching realised I'd stitched the top words in the wrong colour! Oh dear nevermind :)



Love & Joy by Plum Street Samplers


stitched on 36ct linen with recommended DMC threads


Kath and I are continuing our Little House Needleworks ornie SAL and June's choice was Fa La La

Another quick ornament stitch for June was this cutie by the Sampler Girl, Dash Away All - I have stitched a couple of these for my work friends.



I've just realised after seeing this pic that the reindeer still needs to have a star or button sewn on.




Well, its time for me to get on with organising our Sunday dinner - enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lovely ornaments Katrina!

Really nice stitching Katrina! My favourite is the Plum Street Sampler one. I never would have known you'd used the wrong colour if you hadn't said something. It looks fantastic!

Keep up the great work at stitching those ornies up. They look fantastic.

I am giving the shout-out to my stitcher friends that http://thestitchersmarket.blogspot.com is having a giveaway for Lizzie Kate's "Life's a Beach". Thought you would like to know because it's very similar to the type of projects you stitch.

My blog is http://betweenthestitches.blogspot.com if you would like to visit me. I have giveaways at different times in both blogs.

If you could let your blog friends know, I would appreciate a shout-out.

Have a great day!

These ornies are so pretty. I have to buy some patterns and stitch some of my own.
