I have an ornament for October

 I have been very lax with this SAL. I fully intended to stitch a 12 Days ornamemt each month this year, and for the first 5 months I did. Then I started stitching on my big project (HAED Christmas Dreams) and my obsessive streak took over. Everything else went on the back burner as I tried to make as much progress as I could on CD. This month I finally set CD aside for 2 weeks so that I could finish my 2020 Christmas ornaments.  So  here is my '12 Days of Christmas' Day 10 ornament

I adapted this design from Dimensions #172 '12 Days of Christmas'.

And here are Days 6 to 9, 11, and 12 to finish the set.

These were all adapted from Lesley Grant's 12 days set, published in Dec 1995 issue of UK Cross Stitcher magazine.

Suzanne's October Ornaments

 Hi Everyone! I hope you all are staying well. I went with the Christmas Carol theme this month - Frosty the Snowman. 

My first ornament is from the 2016 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue, Snow by Val's Stuff. I stitched this on Navy 14 count aida and finished as a flat ornament with orange stiffened felt. I was lucky enough to find little buttons that are almost the right color. I should have found the buttons first and matched my floss to them. Hindsight is 20-20 as my Mother would have said. 

My second ornament this month is a freebie from Midnight Stitching, Snowman's Quaker Christmas. I've seen lots of you stitch this and I had to have one for myself. I stitched this on red 14 count aida using my own choice of colors. I finished this as a round flat ornament with my favorite pom-pom trim.

That's it for me, but I've done a lot of finishing this month as Christmas draws near. Take care!

DJ's October Christmas Ornaments

Hi Everybody!

I'm excited to show you this month's ornaments!  I've been working on two themes, first up is Theme One is the 12 Days of Christmas...Here is 10 Lords a Leaping from the Stoney Creek Magazine stitched on 28 count white over two.

Next is from Theme Three, this month is an ornament from the 2014 Ornament Issue of JCS.  I chose One More Stitch by Victoria Sampler.  I haven't quite figured out how to finish it...This was stitched on 32 count light mocha over two.  I substituted some items in my stash for things called the hearts and beads.

That is all I have for this month!  Happy Stitching!
