July Ornament

It's time once again to see what I have been stitching up for my tree!

Sisters and Best Friends
Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue 2000

Stitched on a piece of 28-count fabric instead of the called-for 11-count Taverna. I stitched with two threads instead of three, but I did use the called for GAST. The snowman needs a carrot nose, but he's just going to have to wait until I take a trip to the LNS. The santa's beard is done in French knots. The eyes are also French knots. It took me as long to do the four blue ones as it took me to do the million white ones.

I love this because I do believe in Santas and Snowmen.

I'm so happy I joined Stitching Lotus's ornament SAL. I love my handmade Christmas tree, and I would love to have more ornaments on it. Sometimes I just need a little push to put things at the top of the list!
