July Ornament SAL

I had a Christmas ornament in mind for this month's ornie but while I was hunting for the chart in my stash I came upon this. It was screaming, "You have to stitch me, you have to stitch me!". I agreed, it was perfect.



This is a Bent Creek design and it called for all three birds to be stitched in the same blue. I dug the colour from my floss and wasn't happy with it so instead I chose three different blues from my stash.... one Dinky Dyes and two Carrie's Creations floss. I'm really happy with how they've turned out. Each bird is unique!

The hunt is on for the perfect finishing fabric and as of this morning I started stitching that Christmas ornament I originally planned. I just know that August is going to fly by with all of our plans this month.

If you'd like to join in the fun, just click on the 2013 Ornament SAL icon on my sidebar and it will take you to Heather's site where you can find all the info.

That's the fun of browsing through your stash - you always find something that you want to stitch immediately. Great choice, the little birdies. And the different blues are just perfect for them. I just love the one with the long neck who is singing with joy.
