Christmas Ornament SAL - First month post

My enthusiasm for Christmas ornaments led me to sign up on this SAL.   Added to the delight of actually stitching, there was the pleasure of going through my stack of charts and chosing 12 that I would stitch during 2013.
First up is this mitten which showcases my love of winter Christmas scenes.   I live in the Antipodes and have summer Christmas and don't we all want what we can't have?   And I love DMC 115 so they combined well for this first ornament.

  7. Such a pretty ornament! I've always loved churches in designs, even though I don't attend. Ah, the perils of being a preacher's kid...

  11. Wow, what a very sweet ornament. I really love it.

    One year I want to somewhere where it is summer for Christmas. It must feel so different than Christmas up here.
