Christmas ornaments

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the summer sunshine, however these pictures will make you feel quite chilly as I have a few winter Christmas ornaments to show.
The picture above is the ornament I have stitched for the Christmas Challenge blog, I was a few days late for the June ornament but I finally managed to get it finished, it is a Prairie Schooler pattern stitched on 28 count and made into a little felt pillow. I really love this Christmas Challenge because it makes me adhere to my Christmas stitching, I can’t believe there are only 6 more ornaments to make for Christmas, where does the time go? The pictures below show the lovely Christmas in July exchange I received from Ellen L for the Hooked on Exchanging Too blog, as you can see from the pictures Ellen was very generous with the extras!
Thankyou Ellen I love it all.

Stitching news
I have sent my tea exchange to Jennifer this week so I will have some photo’s to show probably by the end of next week. I have started to stitch my July ornament for the Christmas Challenge blog as I do not want to be late this next time, and I am concentrating on the Prairie Schooler round 3 exchange for August and my first anniversary blog giveaway on the 31 July 2009.
Happy stitching everyone, thankyou for your visits and the lovely comments you leave, I really appreciate them all.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Ooooh, Lynn, I love the way to blanket stitched the edge of the felt. (That is what you did, right?) It gave it great texture. Beautifully done.

    Love the way you finish your June ornament, which reminds me i haven't finish mine yet for last month and can't do one for this month either as we are leaving soon. Been out the house so much the last weeks…well, hope you are enjoying the summer.
