May Ornament – Finally!

Ack. I sure dropped the ball, didn’t I? But, my May ornament is finished. I did the last of the back stitching yesterday afternoon while enjoying a mini Torchwood marathon. (I’m halfway through the first season now.)

May’s ornament is (was?) Peace on Earth Dragon by Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams (who else?), from the 2002 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. It is stitched more or less as charted, rayon thread included. My only adjustment was to change the words from white to red. The fabric is Toasted Almond evenweave of some type, I think. (I really should keep better notes on fabric.)

I’ve started June’s ornament, so there will be no chance of it not being finished on time. I’m already halfway done, so I just need to keep up the momentum. Of course, I am planning to haul out the sewing machine tomorrow…

    This is so cute, I do love the Dragon Dreams designs. Once I’ve stitched the 12 Days of Christmas I’m going to continue with one a month of the other designs.
