Little Tree

This weekend was the weekend of Leena’s and my little Christmas ornament SAL, and this weekend I chose to stitch a small freebie from Drawn Thread ‘Tree Keeper’ (yes, it’s meant to be a scissor fob rather than an ornament) which you can find here. It’s a teensy little design (particularly as I stitched it on 40ct linen), and didn’t’ take me long. I started a second ornament, but ran out of time and didn’t manage to finish it as H and I were glued to the telly watching Padraig Harrington see off all challengers in the very exciting Open Championship – H as you can imagine was jumping up and down and fist-pumping through much of the back 9. So I plan to finish the second ornament for next month’s mini-SAL and will post a photo then. In the meantime, here is the titchy Tree Keeper (sorry the photo isn't brilliant):

Design: Drawn Thread ‘Tree Keeper
Linen: 40ct Sugar Maple Fabrics 'Brindlewood'
Floss: WDW as charted

Happy stitching!

YOU are so sweet! I got a parcel today and yes, I had forgotten about a PIF. And you are extremely generous, but then I remember that about you from before. What a fabulous job you did with the zipper and the little pocket - perfect for my scissor case and fob. How lucky for me. And that fabric is just amazing - I love it.

Thank you so much. You are a real sweetie and I surely do appreciate it.

I'll get it on the crazy exchange blog soon (not sure what tomorrow holds, but perhaps. . . )

Thank you so much!

It's such a lovely ornament! I didn't manage to finish my tiny ornament last month... The weekend was crazy and I didn't have time to stitch at all. I REALLY look forward to our this month's SAL weekend, so that I can finish my ornament and start a new one!
