It's been a difficult month for me. An unexpected health issue which left me immobile for some weeks and has left me with restrictive mobility limitations and the prospect of spinal surgery in the not too distant future. At the same time, and for totally unrelated reasons beyond my control, I was without phone and internet service. I was not a happy pussy cat! One of the things I can not do is stand in one place, and this has interrupted my creative flow. Usually I stitch up a batch of 4-6 ornaments, then make them up. My ornament count is now 13 stitched, nil finished up. I am hopeful I'll be able to launder a few stitched ornaments soon so I can finish them up.
Most of the ornaments I have stitched are shown in the post below. So, I will just show you the two finished most recently.
I stitched this one for my second oldest niece. I know she will like this Santa, as she stitched and framed a very similar Santa for me about 6 years ago as a Christmas present.
Santa is a BH&G design
I stitched this one for a much loved nephew and his partner, who like the colour blue but really are not great fans of Christmas, despite my best efforts!
Some of the elements in this ornament (JOY, trees) came from designs in the
Love Heart freebie on the BH&G website
I am unable to sit in my computer chair for more than 10 minutes at a time, so I;m off to the recliner now. I will pop in to see the Smalls SAL reports when I can.
