SAL’s Update

Hello everyone!

I decided to stitch some ornaments for the Christmas Ornie SAL 2019 blog and also stitch something halloween for the Hallowe’en Ornie SAL 2019 blog.

For the Christmas blog I decided to stitch pieces for the theme three, ornaments from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornie Magazine!

My January ornament:

Design: The Prairie Schooler – Frosty Fun
(2009 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornie Magazine)
Fabric/Threads: 40 count Moka Newcastle linen/DMC

The February ornament:

Design: Blackbird Designs – Winter Song
(2008 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornie Magazine)
Fabric/Threads: 30 count Old Town hand dyed linen by R&R Reproductions/ The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works, Crescent Colours


For the Hallowe’en Ornie SAL 2019 I decided to stitch a medium piece by The Prairie Schooler and try to fit some of the blocks with the themes.

For January (Haunted House theme) and February (any spooky characters theme) my stitching:

A Haunted House
Design: The Prairie Schooler – Boo Moon
Fabric/Threads: 40 count October 31 hand dyed linen by Barbaral Creations/DMC
A Scarecrow
