My March & April Ornaments

A Colonial Christmas Ornament by Cherished Stitches

Stitched on black 28 count Quaker Cloth with HDF "Tugtika" silk thread.
Started in March but not finished until April.

Toy Shop Sign by Carriage House Samplings
from the JCS 2007 Christmas Ornament magazine

Stitched over one on 28 count Natural Cashel linen with DMC threads and finished as a pinkeep. Started 23 April 2008. Finished 29 April 2008.


I actually got two stitched over this past weekend. I'm stitching poinsettias right now, I plan to pick Santas next to stitch. Anyway, this one is Poinsettia by Brittercup Designs and appeared in the 2007 JCS special issue. I changed the colorway to "brighten" it up just a bit, using Ozark Sampler flosses, and it's stitched on a plain white piece of linen (a real departure for me, LOL) that I found in my fabric tub.

I was able to get this stitched on Sunday. Just in the nick of time. I substituted fibers for what I had on hand. The falling snow did not show up well, so I may stitch this one again on a different fabric.

Tennis Sensation Hot Anna Kournikova

Ex-tennis Sensation Anna Kournikova one of the most searched people on the internet. She proves that you don't need to be a star tennis player to be one of the most highly endorsed athletes, nor do you need killer tennis skills to have a deadly internet virus named after you. In February 2001, the Anna Kournikova Virus was released. Within a few hours of its distribution anti-virus vendors received thousands of reports. However, investigators were only able to list 55 incidents of infection, causing just $166,827 worth of damage. On 27 September 2001, a Dutch court gave the virus's author, Jan De Wit, the choice of 150 hours community service or 75 days in jail.

Poinsettia Pocket Ornmanet

I'm back to stitching ornaments again, and on a poinsettia kick. Have scoured all my JCS Ornament Special Issues looking for the charts, here is the first one to be stitched. It went quick! I just started it yesterday evening, and now it's done. The designer is Samplers and Such, and it appeared in the 2005 JCS special issue.

A Colonial Christmas Ornament

Latest Finish:  17.04.08, A Colonial Christmas Ornament

Here is my latest ornament, "A Colonial Christmas Ornament" by Cherished Stitches from the 2007 JCS Ornament Issue. There are a few things about this piece that I should mention: First, instead of beads I chose to do French knots for the holly berries. Second, the date and the holly on the third panel are stitched over one... on 36 count! Third, I am especially proud of the cording that I made. After two or three years of making my own cording, I finally made a length that has uniform tension!
