I did make up all the ornaments I had stitched by the April report.
Teddy is a freebie from DMC website (colours changed).
Santa initials from Santa alphabet in LA's Alphabets Galore
(colours changed and some changes to design).
The beaded trees are my own design.
I have stitched (but not yet made up) three more Christmas ornaments. The first is destined to be a Christmas gift for a one year old Aussie-American great nephew living in New York. The front is on the right, the back is on the left.
The teddy is a Dale Burdett design, from 'A Mini Christmas'
booklet (floss colours changed).
The kangaroo is from the 'Emblems of Australia in Cross Stitch' book,
designer Marianne J Porteners (floss colours changed).
The other two Christmas ornaments are Christmas gifts for two little English brothers, grandchildren of an old friend. This time, the front is on the left, and the back is on the right. Despite evidence to the contrary, the ornaments are the same size.
The Santa initials are from the Santa alphabet in LA's Alphabets Galore booklet (1998).
As usual, I changed the floss colours, and I also filled in the blank areas on Santa's sleeve.
Way back in the last 2 weeks of April (it seems like ages ago) I did work on Christmas Dreams (chart, fabric, and most of the floss purchased with birthday money). I finished my seventh page, but I haven't touched it at all in May - in fact, I banished it upstairs while my house was filled with visitors, and it hasn't yet made its way downstairs to my stitching chair.. I hope to have some progress to show next month - maybe. Here's what it looked like when I took it upstairs.
That's it for me. I'm keen to look at all the lovely blogs to see what everyone has been stitching in the past month.
