Ornament SAL November Update
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 stitched the 11th Dragonlet of Christmas right at the beginning of the month, so here he is:
He's a Piper Piping! Bonus points for anyone who can identify the tune he is piping.
The JBW cat got left to the end of the month and I haven't quite finished him yet, so I don't spoil the surprise here is a "top of the head" scan:
That fabric is actually black jobelan. Bonus points for anyone who can guess the theme this month.
I haven't stitched a Hallowe'en ornie (yet) because I've been concentrating on my Little Stitcher's Advent Calendar. So here is the second part of that:
Cutesville! Gingerbread men and little bunnies (or maybe hares given the length of their ears?). The fabric is 32count Belfast in Vintage Grain as Shirlee asked me about it. The colours do show up nicely. The chart calls for a Vintage 32 count but not one that I had and I did have Grain.
I have bought the supplies for my finishing idea for this Advent Calendar while in town today, all I need is some velcro tape, some double sided tape and I'm ready for making up just in time for the weekend. I promise to Show and Tell as soon as I get started.
Finally, as soon as I finish this post I will be sending out the dates for the Advent Calendar Blog Hop so watch your inboxes if you signed up. There is still one place left if anyone wants to be in, just drop me an email.
