SAL & WIP

I have a folder with lots of ornament designs that i'd like to stitch and the monthly ornie SAL is a great way to get a good collection for the festive season. This one came from JCS Ornament Edition 2006 and is by Charlotte Web Needleworks. It's one of those designs i think you either love or hate. The roof and bricks are not the stitch shown in the magazine, i didn't like how it was done so used the stitchers perogative and gave it my own version.

A bit more progress to show on the Travelling Stitcher too, this is so lovely to stitch.

I have one more deadline item to stitch for this month which is the monthly challenge. This time the designer is A mon ami pierre, i've finally decided which one i will do (i think!) i like most of the free charts on this site :-)

Of course i still need to get a couple of motifs onto Beatrix this month too but i dont suppose i'll get a lot done this week stitchywise as DH has got the week off and he has plans for lots of little jobs getting done around here, fingers crossed Mr Sunshine decides to play nicely and we can get the trelliswork painted ... such joy!!!
