Ornamental June

Click now for JiffNotes

I never did a report on my stitching for Ornamental June (stitching on ornaments from Just Cross Stitch Ornament issues). I did finish one ornament, Poinsettia by Britty Kitty from the 2007 issue (for this year's exchange):

I hope to have it "ornamentified" before the exchange on Friday!! I can't believe how dark the red for this is (it's Cinders by GAST). It's nearly black!

I also worked on a Wee Works ornament...I can't remember the name, but it's stitched on three cards of Tokens and Trifles Bon Bon cards. I'm on the first one... *sigh* I don't have that much progress to show from last month, but I've designated it my travel project for the month, since it includes red and white.

I finally finished my surprise ornament for the exchange, also (it's even ornamentified!)...but I can't show it to you until after the exchange!! I'm rather pleased with how it turned out, and it represents a "first" for me, so I can't wait to show it off!

What month is it again??

The poinsettia looks great even if it isn't "ornamentified" yet. Looking forward to seeing all your stuff this weekend!!!

Pretty poinsettia! I'm getting it too! Did you ornamentify the surprise yourself? If so, I'm super impressed! Mine surprise is still in's only Tuesday. :-)

Very pretty. Wish I was going to be there to see it in person. :-(
