Faith's February Ornament

I FINALLY finished stitching Day 2 from the Margaret Sherry's Twelve Days of Christmas series. I had a few visits from the frog on this one but thankfully he tired of me and moved on.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching!

Serendipitous Jo's February Turtles Doves

I have completed the second block of Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas:

It didn't take long at all because so much of it had been done for the 12 Days SAL at Christmas.  Here is the whole piece so far:

You can see where I am diligently stitching the gold metallic on either side of the red border.  I had used up one of the two skeins provided before I was even half-way done and it was obvious I would need more.  I emailed Design Works on Friday 3rd February with a photo of my progress and explaining the need for another skein of metallic thread.  They replied within the hour promising to send one.  Which arrived on Tuesday 7th February.  At first I assumed they had asked a UK stockist to send it, but no, the skein came all the way from the US in just four days, two of which were a weekend!   That's good service for you.

Two Turtledoves

And February's Dragonlet is done. This is definitely a record for me.

Terrible picture of the fabric, but I do love the turtle doves.
