Some ornament finishes

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying their day.  We are pretty quiet here.  Just savoring the last few weeks until school starts.  The kids don't go back until Aug 26.

I have done some stitching on the Christmas SAL but I am waiting until the kids go back before I do any more.  It is so much easier to do smalls because I can put it down and pick it back up without losing my concentration.

Here is a finish.  It is from the July Blueladie Designs newsletter.  I used some 18ct hand-dyed Aida from RR.  It is a discontinued color; too bad because I love it.

I have been trying to do the monthly freebie challenge over on the 123stitch! message board.  This was July's challenge.  LizzieKate Cozy Christmas Wishes.  I had a lot of fun stitching this.

I had these stitched and I finally finished them into ornaments.  I had a problem putting together the owl (struggled with the lace edge) but I still think it looks great and will go on my tree.  It is just a little crocked at the bottom.  Hope it isn't that noticeable.


I have 2 more stitched but I need to make a run to the fabric store so I won't post them until they are made into pillows.

Thanks so much for looking,
Mary
