DJ's April update

Hey....whaddaya know?  I'm actually finished with my ornaments early this month!  Will wonders never cease?  haha's what I've been up to.  For theme one, I finished Four Calling Birds from the Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine March 1889 issue.  This was stitched on 28 count white evenweave over 1.

For theme two, Christmas Carols, I finished Noel Ornament by The Sweetheart Tree from the 2008 JCS Ornament issue.  This was stitched on 32 count natural opalescent over 2.

For theme three, I finished Warm Wishes from the 2002 JCS Ornament issue.  This was stitched over 2 on a mystery fabric I had laying around.  I think it was 36 count.

I'm actually amazed I'm keeping up!  Thanks for all the encouragement from this group, I'm making the time to work on this challenge.  I'm loving all the different ornaments I've been seeing, it's so much fun to watch you all!  Happy Stitching!!
