Ornament Finishing


I finished making up these two ornaments yesterday afternoon, ready for the annual ornament collection for family and friends.



Hallelujah by Little House Needleworks
stitched with recommended threads, 30ct straw linen.


Here you can see the backing fabric I used.




Peace by Cathy Habernann of Hands on Design, 
from Just Cross Stitch August 2015
stitched with recommended threads, black belfast linen.

And the backing fabric:



I have several more ornaments kitted and ready to go, just need to get my needle moving!

ALL darling works Katrina :) I can't get my act together with ornaments this year....I think I'm a little burned out with all that I've done as models over the past 5 years.
