Ornament of the Month – April 2011

Somehow we’ve made it well into the middle of April, and I’m only just finishing up my ornament of the month.  I’m not really sure how that happened (being halfway through April, not the stitching). But, here we are, deep into crazy Canadian spring weather (rain, snow and sun on Sunday, clouds and a little snow yesterday, -1 today, and maybe 19 on Wednesday; no wonder everyone gets sick this time of year).

Britty Kitty Christmas by BritterCup Designs

The design is Britty Kitty Christmas by BritterCup designs from the 2005 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. The fabric is some 28ct white from my stash, and the threads are Dinky Dyes silk in colour Black Coral and the remaining silk is unknown colours from my collection of Oops packs, etc.  It is stitched over one.

As I was working on this, I started thinking I wasn’t really feeling this ornament of the month thing. It was really cutting into my stitching time for my larger designs. And, with all the commission knitting I’ve been doing, my stitching time has been very limited (not to mention all the sewing I want to do). But, when I finished it, I very nearly started another ornament. 🙂 Good to know that I know my own mind.

    Very pretty! I’ve been wanting to stitch this forever and somehow never get to it, sigh…

    Adorable finish!
    I should do more, to me they seem like a happy dance in between in the larger ones.
