Suzanne's August Ornaments

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is well and having lots of time to stitch. I'm continuing with the Just Cross Stitch Magazine theme. This month was 2005 and both of my ornaments were from the Christmas Ornament issue. First is Glory Bee's Seasons Greetings stitched on 14 count using DMC alternatives. I used a pom-pom edging and stiffened felt for the backing.

My next ornament is Lizzie*Kate's Sweet Christmas stitched on 18 count using DMC threads. I didn't have the JBS buttons so I found sweet Sock Monkey buttons and used a red button from my stash to finish it. I also added a little back stitching on the candy because it wasn't showing up too well on the fabric. I finished this ornament the same way as the first.

I can't wait to see everyone's stitching this month!
