Thank you to Kaye for setting up the Christmas Ornie SAL Blog and thinking up some great themes. I like that she has made the first year nice and open, my shoe-horn will not be required this year at least.
I have been collecting the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Specials since 2011 and they will be my main source of charts and inspiration. Every year I spend hours drooling over the photos and making lists of my favourite designs and then rarely actually stitching any of them! From now on, all that will change. I have both the back issues CDs as well.
This design is from the JCS 2012 Christmas Special and is called Santa's Hat Sampler by Knotted Tree Needleart. KTN have also designed two similar Hallowe'en charts of which I have stitched one so far. Followers of my own blog will know that I am much more of a spooky stitcher than a festive one.
