Ornament SAL October 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 Ornie SAL blog.

I spent nearly all of this month working away on Drac-in-a-Box (see previous post) but thank to the Half Term Holiday here I have managed to finish not one, but four ornies in as many days!!

The first is my Alphabet Kitty for October, stitched in the classic black on orange for a Hallowe'en feel:

I'll make him into an actual ornie this weekend I think, along with a spooky charm.

The second piece is the Dragon Dreams Tenth Dragonlet of Christmas, a cute Dragonlet a'leaping:

These dragons are a Facebook exclusive from Dragon Dreams.  One or two people have stitched all twelve onto one piece of fabric and are displaying them on the FB page.

The third and fourth pieces I am saving for tomorrow for the Hallowe'en Blog Hop and Theme-a-lious updates respectively.  I did stitch a Hallowe'en ornie this month but it's not actually relating to the chosen theme of owls.  I do have an owl one for next month instead of candy corn because we don't really have that in this country.  We do have Cadbury's Screme Eggs though and I had one yesterday.  Yummy!

Finally, thank you all so much for your comments on the Drac-in-a-Box post.  I do like to follow my stats and usually about 10% of the page views lead to a comment.  In this case it was nearly 50%!!!  I do find myself that I am most likely to comment on a Happy Dance blog post and it's obviously true for other people too.  Thank you all again, it means alot to me.

Lovely ornies, Jo - it is Halloween here already and I have posted my letter - yay! I have unfortunately let my Christmas and Halloween Ornie SALs fall by the wayside. Too busy with Mum and Dad and my JE RR.
