Christmas Ornies and New Start!

These are the christmas ornies a colleague from work has made up for me. I have to say I think they are brillant. Just hope the receipents like them.

But as I have joined the LHN monthly ornie SAL I thought I perhaps ought to have a go at making one myself and below is my first attempt. Pictured with it is the material I back it with. My mum helped with it a bit, firstly by providing the sewing machine as I borrowed hers. I have to say I am quite pleased with it and definitely think I will make the ornies up myself.

Below is my new start, the birth sampler for Callum. Pictured with it is how it will look like when it is finished although I will have mine framed as I did for his brother. I have started at the top left hand corner so when I next get stitching I will be stitching the boat (sorry the picture is not very good I was in a bit of a rush).
