December's Ornies

I surprised myself this month in that I manage to stitch not one but two ornies. The first was earmarked for the Ornament SAL and was finished up pretty early on in the month. The second one was a spur of the moment start and I was happy that despite all the bustle of Christmas preparations I managed to complete this pretty addition as well.

First up, Little House Needleworks Seven Pines. This sweet little ornament was offered as a Christmas freebie gift. I stitched it up over one on the same fabric I used for Peppermint Twist.



I'm hoping to finish this one as a pillow ornament. It's a darling little design and I thank Diane of LHN for the wonderful addition to our tree.

The second ornament is one of the Box Ornaments from Country Garden Stitchery. I've stitched one other of these in the past and loved the delicate look of them.



Just one more remaining in this trio for me to tackle. The next one I want to stitch on a white opalescent using a red and green overdyed floss. They finish up very nicely.

I can't believe that brings me to the end of the year's commitment. I'm so happy that I was able to keep up and managed to stitch at least one ornament a month. Thank you so much Heather for organizing this SAL and I can't wait for next year's smalls!

Love the seven pines! So cute. I also did two this month, but that was because I finished a second one that was supposed to be September's ornament. But I had some upheaval in my schedule in September, so I'm not going to complain. :) Happy New Year!
