Ornament SAL – February Check In

It is ornament sharing time again! I hope you all found lots of time to stitch this month. We were socked in pretty good with a snow storm for a few days, and coupled with Baby Man being home sick from school before that, I had lots of time to stitch. (Ignoring the fact that I was supposed to be resting my arm…)

My ornament for this month is Oh Holey Knight by Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams. It is from the 2000 edition of the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. It is stitched as charted, except for making the “H” on “OH” just a little bit smaller. It is stitched on another piece of Enchanting Lair’s Meadow. I think it is 28 count Lugana.

It is a really cute and funny, but it was a bit of a pain to stitch. #4 braid is not my favourite thing to stitch with, especially since I usually use PTB now. And stitching with #4 braid on hand-dyed fabric is even more of a pain, since it is so soft. But, the end result is great!

Angela M. is still resisting the siren call of a blog (and still recovering from her operation), so I’m very happily sharing her ornament again. For February she stitched Witch’s Footwear by Imaginating, from the September/October 2012 Just Cross Stitch.

How did your February stitching go? Please share your ornament with all the other SAL participants by filling in the form below. And, please, take a moment to visit some of the other participants. Half the fun of having a blog is the comments from others! If you haven’t got a blog but still want to share your ornament, send me an email. The more the merrier!

(Also, as an aside: I’m looking for a Just Nan’s Pumpkin Pockets. If you have the chart and would live to trade or sell it, please let me know.)

    Your little knight is adorable! I’m not very fond of stitching with the braid either but it does make for a great finish.
    Angela’s Halloween ornie is great!

    Your ornaments are great!

  5. Ruth says:

    Congrats on fine ornaments to you both! I have been eyeing those Dragon Dreams ornies for years in JCS and so far I’ve only stitched one. How pathetic am I? Maybe in your honor I’ll have a DD ornie month next month. :)

    It is a Dragon Dreams year! I successfully completed my 3 ornies again this month. Yay for me!

    Oh! I knew I was supposed to do something today.

    Great ornaments…
    I re-submitted my link, as it didn’t appear to be working. Loretta’s link doesn’t work for me, either. Not sure if it’s me/my computer, or what?

  9. Susan says:

    Very cute finishes. I have to find the knight one – my son would love it.

  10. Nina says:

    Cute dragon! And Angela’s Halloween ornie is well done!
