It's Christmas Ornament SAL Weekend

Merry Christmas

Glory Bee

28 ct Natural Quaker Linen

Gentle Art Sampler Thread

Stitched 2/25/07


After I finished my ornament, I figured I should work on Rachael's Neighborhood Round Robin... but, I didn't feel like working on a big draping cloth, so I chose to get a bit more done on 18th Century Band Sampler (aka Long Dog Mystery Sampler) instead :-) It's been a while since I have had a chance to work on it, so I am glad that I did.

Stitched on today: Merry Christmas ornament, 18th Century Band Sampler, started a gift

What a cute ornament. I love the colors in the bandsampler. Very Spring feeling.

Hope your not getting hit with a lot of snow. It's the kind of day down here that makes me want to just stay inside and stitch.

Your ornament is cute, and the Long Dog is looking gorgeous. I'm really enjoying seeing this one. I subscibed to the magazine so I could have the pattern, but am no where near to starting it.
