August Ornie

I have spent the last week on and off stitching my August ornament SAL with Angela.  I decided to stitch Country Cottage Needleworks Merry and Bright.  Another piece I have really enjoyed especially since I loved the colours in this one.


I stitched this on a mystery 28ct light pink fabric, not that you can tell from my picture, using DMC threads.  I will finish this as a flat ornament when I have a f f f f finishing frenzy which needs to be soon as I have about five ornies to make up.

I am gong to work on Lisa's RR this week so will post a picture when I have done my block.

I don't know whether you have seen the new Lizzie Kate releases and the Little House Needleworks Ornament of the Month but I can tell you know they will be mine when they are available in the UK.

I also need to tell you that Sarah at Craftymoo is having a great giveaway so pop over and have a look.

Until next time, happy stitching

I'll bet it looks really pretty on pink fabric, Lesleyanne...it is frustrating when the computer doesn't show the true colors of our work, isn't it! Looking forward to seeing all five of your ornaments finished :)
