Ornament SAL – January Check In

It’s the last Wednesday of the month and time for the Ornament SAL check in!

Holiday Keepsake Bellpull, designed by Dragon Dreams

Holiday Keepsake Bellpull, designed by Dragon Dreams

This month I stitched Holiday Keepsake Bellpull by Dragon Dreams from the 1999 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. It is stitched as per the pattern, using Enchanting Lair’s Meadow for the fabric. I, of course, had to rechart the date. 🙂 (I apologize for the quality of the picture. We have had several rainy days here, and I keep missing the sunshine.)


How is your ornament coming along? Fill in the form and link to your finished picture, or just leave a comment if you haven’t been able to get an ornament stitched this month. I will leave the comments and form open for a week (midnight EST on February 5th, or there about). If you don’t have a blog but still want to share a picture, please send me an email.

Update – Check in for January is now closed.

    I’ve stitched that one and given it away, seeing it again, I want to stitch it for myself!

    I was posting my link while at work, trying to multitask and put the title as January Title instead of my blog name “Colourful Cross Stitches”… maybe by December I’ll know what I’m doing!!
    I like your ornament, I’m also a fan of Dragon Dreams.

  14. Carrie says:

    Is it too late to join this SAL? I have never been an ornament stitcher and this would give me the motivation to stitch some!
