Some late February ornaments

I can't believe I forgot to post my February ornaments! I even made 2!

For the Carols theme, here is my Reindeer (not red-nosed). It is a Beyond Cross Stitch kit from Victoria Sampler called Evergreen.

And for the Twelve Days theme, here are 2 doves, called "Snowbirds," by Country Cottage Needleworks from JCS Christmas 2013. I used Quaker 28 ct linen in Pearl Gray, and I didn't cross stitch it-- I was lazy and did continental stitch (half cross stitch) 2 over 1 with the suggested DMC. I wanted a really small ornament and this is just over 2" square. I really like it and it was fun to do!


  1. They are beautiful! I have stitched the snowbirds one also. One of my favorites!

  2. Oh Mary, both are sweet but I really love the snowbirds! I don't think that I have seen that pattern before.

  3. Two gorgeous ornies. I particularly like the reindeer one with the lovely border.

  4. Love your finishes :) I have those two little birds on my list to stitch at some point :)

  5. Beautiful stitching. They are both lovely.

  6. Your Reindeer is stunning, I love hardanger work.
