Suzanne's May Ornaments
Hello everyone! I hope you all are staying safe and healthy. For this month's theme I chose the Just Cross Stitch Magazine. My first ornament is from the July/August 2011 Sneak Peek issue. It's Blue Ribbon Designs Christmas Cottage. I've stitched this on 18ct oatmeal with DMC conversion threads. I've run out of the checked ribbon I used on the previous ornaments so I went with what was in my stash and used a dark green grosgrain with the same jute rope edging.
My second ornament is from the 2011 Christmas Ornament issue and is Blue Ribbon Designs Frosty in the Firs. This is stitched and finished the same as my first ornament.
These are a fun stitch and I wish I had every magazine so I could have a complete set of them. I'm looking forward to everyone's stitching this month. Take care!
