Another ornament finish.

One of the few stitching goals I set myself for this year was to stitch and finish one ornament a month. January passed before I knew it so now I have made two ornaments in February. The Prairie Schooler Santa in the previous post was my January ornament (even though it was stitched and finished in February) and late last night I finished up this little beauty. I am super happy with how it turned out.

Noel Ornament

There is not much else going on. I had been fighting a UTI earlier this week and today a cold has been trying its best to set in my body. I am not about to let that happen. I have no time to be sick at the moment! So I am doing my very best to keep it at bay.

I did a little more stitching on my Flea Market Souvenir Sampler and will post a picture of it later this week. It is too dark right now to be snapping some photos. And I want to show you the true beautiful colors of the piece. I am on the last part of it now. I can’t wait to assemble it! I think it is going to be a lot of fun!

Another thing. Next weekend I will have my big finishing camp weekend as I mentioned here. So if any of you ladies are going to fly over, you are welcome! Seriously! The more the merrier!

    The ornament is wonderful. I love the colour of the thread !
    Now it is February, but I also stitch a little christmas project. I live in the north of Germany, where the weather isn´t fine. Always rain, no snow. Cold and dirty. So it keeps me warm to stitch for christmas in these days.
    Oh, I would like to come for your special weekend, but it is only a dream. When I was a child, I listened to the stories about Island and I thought that all is true.(I still do.)
    Now I am adult, sitting here in my little stitching and knitting room, listening “Edda”(sequentia)
    and knit a sweater with iceland yarn.
    So, next weekend I will be in Island in my mind and I hope (I am sure) you will have a lot of fun with your stitching friends.
