Hello everyone,
Some small ornaments that I stitched this month.

For the Hallowe’en Ornie SAL 2017 my choice is this cute design of a half moon, since the month theme is “The Moon”.
I replaced one colour to give more contrast with the fabric.

Design by Primitive Acorns – Lunar Spells.
Stitched on 40 count Thieffry linen Bleu Ciel with DMC floss (310 and 3046).

Last year I had no time to stitch the December ornament for the “Christmas Ornie SAL 2016” and is one of my favourites themes – “Angels”.
So my choice is this 2014 freebie from C Mon Monde blog. The frebbie is not available anymore, but maybe you can contact the designer.

Design by C Mon Monde – Michele Angelot.
Stitched on 40 count Vintage Country Mocha linen with DMC floss.

The Christmas ornament SAL for this year have two themes. My choice is doing some ornaments for the theme number 2, a variety of themes during the year.
The January month theme is “Christmas Tree”.
I spend some time reading and select some ornaments from the back issues of Christmas Ornaments Collection from Just Cross Stitch. I order the DVD weeks before we decided to buy a house on May 2015.

The DVD is really nice if you don’t have the old issues. So I found this design on the 1999 issue and I just love the cat and the tree. The cat is stitching 1 over 1.

Design by Chessie & Me – Chessie’s Tree ( JCS 1999 Christmas Issue).
Stitched on 28ct Lambswool linen from Permin of Copenhagen with DMC floss and beads.

The last stitching piece for this month is a new design for Teresa Murgida of Primitive Acorns. She asked me for stitch this piece and this is the result.
She already release this new design, you can check on her Etsy shop, here.

Design by Primitive Acorns – The Lady and the Dogs.
Stitched on 35 count Flax linen with DMC floss.

See you soon for some Valentine’s Day stitching!
Happy stitching,
