Christmas in June

Hurrah, this weekend I managed to finish the ornament I started last month for my monthly Christmas ornament mini-SAL with Leena – Tournicoton’s Petit Noel. I’m looking forward to finish-finishing this one, as it’s meant to be four small separate ornaments joined together with ribbons to make a long hanging ornament/wall hanging. I plan to start doing the finishing for all the Christmas ornaments I’ve stitched so far (9 this year already, whoop whoop!) in the autumn – it’s too nice to stay indoors doing finishing over the summer :) Yes, this is me being hopeful about the British summer.

Design: Petit Noel by Tournicoton
Linen: 32ct Vintage Country Mocha
Floss: DMC and Kreinik as charted

Happy stitching!

The ornaments are pretty, it sounds like it's going to be a cute finish!
You've been busy I see and all the exchanges are wonderful.
I look forward to seeing PL! on the SAL Blog soon. We need an update!
Take care.

Great, congratulations Stephanie for stitching all four!! They look sooooo pretty :) I think this fabric suits so well to Christmas ornaments!

My Christmas stitching weekend was not that productive... On Saturday I spent 11 hours in the car and when coming back I got ill :( On Sunday I stayed in bed for the whole day because of this stomach bug... I managed to start stitching a tiny ornament on Saturday in the car but wasn't able to stitch at all on Sunday. I hope to finish my ornament this week though and I will show photos later! By the way, I used the same fabric for my ornament this month :) Have a happy new week!!

This Tournicoton's NOEL is so lovely!!
Actually I have the chart, but haven't been trying it yet, so as seeing your piece, I want to try it for this coming Christmas!!!
I'm so looking forward to seeing your complete ornament of this!
