DJ's April Ornaments

Hello Fellow Stitchers!

I'm usually so excited to have finished stitching ornaments that I post them before finishing them.  I'm so bad when it comes to fully finishing them off, that I decided I wouldn't post until I at least finish the round ones (they are the easiest for me to finish...haha).  So this month I was super lucky to have two round ones! they are!

First is the 12 Days of Christmas and I'm stitching the 12 Dragonlets by Dragon Dreams.  This month was the Four Calling Collie Birds.  I love her sense of humor...putting the little phone, phone line and telephone pole in this design.  What fun!

Next I'm working on the theme from different years of the JCS magazine.  This month was 2017 and I chose Gilded Snowflake by DebBee's Designs.  I stitched this on 40 count Midnight Tryst by Fabrics by Stephanie over two with WDW Icicle floss.  This was a quick stitch!

I have to say, I don't get to visit this blog as often as I would like, but the ornaments I've seen you guys stitching and finishing are so gorgeous!  I really need to get busy and finish up several I've stitched this year.  I did fully finish a couple I stitched for this challenge this are some I have posted for other months...

Wonderful ornaments. I need to try find some of those round forms to actually FFO some of my ornies too.
