Finally finished the Christmas ornaments! The Noel is from the Gift of Stitching Magazine (no longer available) and Peace is from Christmas Ornaments Just Cross Stitch Magazine 2008.
I stitched the Noel ornament using 2 threads over 2 using DMC threads but I have forgotten the number of the colour, I finished stitching it last week but I had run out of the binding and had to wait until I had time to get some more! I am pretty sure it was not the colour suggested in the pattern. I used 32 count Belfast Linen, light mocha. It was really easy to stitch and I love the result of this one.
The Peace ornament is on page 81 of the Just Cross Stitch magazine, I did this 1 over 1 using the colours in the pattern, obviously it took a while longer to do this because I used smaller stitches and you really need to concentrate on the pattern but I liked the result. I used 25 count cream Lugana. I posted a close up picture of this ornament in an earlier post, it gives a better idea of how it looks.
I have one more finish that I will be mailing tomorrow for the Christmas Ornament Hooked on Exchanging Too, I shall post a picture when my partner receives it.
Now I know why everyone says that ornament stitching can get addictive!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
