Ornament SAL February Update

Stitching Lotus Ornament SAL
This is the Ornament SAL hosted by Stitching Lotus


I have three different ornament challenges running this year, the JBW Alphabet Cat stitched in a different colour scheme each month, the Dragon Dreams 12 Dragonlets of Christmas, a FB exclusive and the Hallowe'en SAL blog.

Here is my February cat, stitched on fruit tea dyed evenweave with a little heart charm added:



This is the Second Dragonlet ofChristmas with his two Turtle Doves, literally, little turtles with wings!




And for the Hallowe'en SAL I stitched Fence Cat, a freebie from Jaunty Fox Designs.  To save stitching the background I used my favourite orange jazlyn, 1 over 1 on 28 count.  The black is Anchor as I was experimenting trying to find a better covering black.  Anchor is no worse than DMC for coverage but not a whole lot better either!





Finally, I've been stitching Joan Elliott's February design for the 2013 Diary SAL but I'm saving that for tomorrow's Theme-a-licious update or there'll be nothing to see.  Yes, it's been a Theme-a-lessous month rather than Theme-a-licious (hahaha).

Really lovely ornaments Jo, I think the Fence Cat one is especially eye catching, perhaps just the simple orange and black is what does it. Looking forward to seeing tomorrows post.
