Christmas Ornament Number 1

I have promised myself to stitch one ornament a month through the year so here's the first.   From the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue 2012 in 32 count linen with DMC white and Threadworks Christmas red overdyed.  I decided against adding the year to the stitching and will be finishing this into a circular ornament.   It's about 5cm wide so a perfect size.  The over one of the word was rather hard on the elbow but it's all done now and some Volataren Emugel on the elbow will take the pain away - I hope!
Today has been very hot with hotter to come so it's an orange night tonight on the Temperature SAL and if the weatherman is to be believed we may get to a red for a day or so this week!
I'm off out for a long walk now and back to work tomorrow.   This has been a fun public holiday (=day off work) and I've accomplished all I planned to do.

    1. Hope you did get rain. We had a really hot day today and nary a glimpse of rain. I had to water the garden.

  3. Very pretty ornament! I love the rich red you used. (need to add that one to my "to stitch" list...)

    1. This is a really effective ornament - particularly with some being stitched over one and the snowflake over two.

  4. A pretty little ornament, I like it very much. The temperatures Sal I have stitched last year, how different it is.

  6. That's a lovely little ornie. I'm stitching from the older issues of JCS this year too.
    Nice work on the temperature SAL.

  7. I think we may be over peak summer temperatures now so it might be I get only a solitary red square but this SAL sure makes watching the TV weather exciting!
