January x'mas ornament SAL

Peace Ornament
Country Cottage Needleworks
Just Cross Stitch ornament 2007
28ct linen
DMC threads


Finally finished it into an ornament. As much as possible i would like to try and finish them off each month.

I am working on this one and it is taking me longer than i had expected. Hope to be done before the weekend though. I am afraid i won't hold a needle this weekend as we expected friends from the mainland coming to stay.

Took these pictures last friday evening when dh just arrived, Max was really excited and wouldn't want to leave his side. Mas was quite relactunt when the owner came to pick him up saturday evening.
I think i am going to pick him up next week monday as dh's home for the whole week, after that he will leave to sea for FIVE weeks this time.




Thank you all so much for stopping by especially to all who takes time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate them all.

A very nice ornament! The little car will be gorgeous, but I can see that it has many colour changes so it takes a while to finish it.

Annie said...
