These two ornaments, as you can see, are not yet finished - I will add beads to the cross stitched border, and hopefully finish them up in the next day or so. They will be heading overseas shortly for the two grandsons of an old friend. Nanna is going to deliver them for me when she visits her daughter in England in July.
The Santa initial is from LA's Alphabets Galore booklet (I am stitching a few of these this year!)
And here are the four I did finish up - front and back views.
I used the Alphabets Galore Santa Alphabet chart for the "Alex" ornament, but omitted the Santa and changed the height of the letters.The "Memories" ornament uses the verse from Susan Greening Davis's ornament in JCS 2015 Christmas ornaments magazine. I added the border. The teddy is an old favourite, a Dale Burdett design from A Mini Christmas booklet. And of course the little Santa A is from LA's Alphabets Galore. The kangaroo on the back is adapted from Marianne Portener's design in her Emblems of Australia book.
And that is the extent of my May stitching, and the finish of my May Smalls SAL report. See you in June (hopefully).
