Ornament SAL Report

At last! I've finished my first ornament for the Silver Lotus's Ornament Stitchalong.

I worked on it with my old ladies at the library yesterday, but when I got home from the library, I had to start prepping for our first stamping night. My rep has thrown up her hands at the behavior (messy, thieving) of some people at her stamp classes, so she has stopped doing that and gone back to the model of the PMS (Pizza, Music, and Stamping) party; this means she provides us a place to stamp and some supplies, but she doesn't design any cards. Because I know myself, I knew I had to go in with a plan. Preferably over-prepared. So I had four cards from Pinterest and some of the supplies ready to go. And I completed two of the four (seven cards total), but the group used another one of my ideas.

This morning while we watched Newcastle United beat (!) Chelsea, I completed the stitching on my ornament at long last.

Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue

I also went through my JCS ornament issues, and chose a bunch of ornaments for the next few months. With any luck I'll be able to finish them on time!

Super cards - so creative! BEnt Creek wreath is a cutie.

What cute cards. I have done some stamping/card making. But, I always seem to be at a loss for creative ideas.

Your wreath is so pretty also.

Too bad about the thievery.

Pretty Ornament. I'm sorry some people had to spoil the fun but I'm glad it wasn't ended entirely and you got to do some card making.

Love that ornament. I could definitely change out the colors and do a Cowboys theme. :-) What issue is it?
