This is such a versatile and quick stitch, I can see it looking beautiful with so many other colors! I will definitely be making this one again!
Thanks everyone for your kind comments on my previous entries! I did skip May but my July is already to post as soon as we turn the calendar page! :) If you want to see it early, check out my blog!

(maybe a cliché...)
Anyway, this is my choice for June ornament.

Thanks for your kind comments on my last ornament!
Love, Joy and Peace to you all!

Managed to get in some nice stitching time and Dragonlet #6 was done.
I have to figure out how to make the sparkle show up in the pictures. The fabric sparkles and so does the egg shell.
Here is the whole piece at the moment.

And I made it before the month ended!
Here is Dragonlet #5, sleepy wee fellow.
Sorry it's so blurry - it looked in focus when I snapped it. And here is the overall design.
I think I may get my tree shape after all. After I finish #6 and when I move the hoop I'll take another overall shot and see what's what.

THE 5TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS / 5 GOLD RINGS
I'm a little late starting this one, but it will be easy to finish.
My husband really wanted wanted me to make the kitty orange like our sweet kitten. But he wanted me to do it in shades of Pumpkin. Not a chance! I'm using shades of Copper, with a Dark Red Copper as my outlining color.

I am stitching Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas for the blog this year and have reached everyone's favourite day, sung with gusto by school children everywhere.

I'm late, but I did get my 4th Day done.
And as you can see, a few stitches of 5th Day as well.
Here's how the whole project looks at the moment. The fabric colour in the pictures is terrible - it's really a lovely opalescent green.
The row I'm on will have 4, 5 and 6, then I'll drop down and put 7 - 10, then drop again and centre 11 and 12. Hopefully it will have something like a Christmas tree shape when I'm done.
I also want to say I'm sorry I seem to have disappeared from the blogging world, but I'm dealing with a number of health issues and my energy levels are very low. Hopefully I will be back soon.
