This weekend was the occasion of my little mini-SAL with Leena - we are going to stitch an ornament a month in the hopes of having a tidy little pile of Christmas ornaments around Christmas time, without the usual last-minute frenzy of trying to stitch them all after Thanksgiving. And I can always use a bit of Christmas cheer, no matter what the calendar is actually telling me!
Here is what I stitched this weekend - it's the Blue Ribbon Designs' contribution to the 2007 JCS ornament issue, and is called 'A Wish for Hope and Peace' - I've stitched it pretty much as charted, just changing the linen slightly as this was in my stash:
Also, I'm just about to send off my first Hooked on Exchanging exchange - it's a scissors fob this time around, and it hasn't really got very far to go so I hope my partner likes what I've stitched.
And just a quick hello to some of the new people I've noticed reading my blog - welcome! In my usual haphazard fashion, I'll be over to your blogs soon to have a look at what you're up to!
