April ornament and WIPocalypse update!

I'm in the 2013 Ornament SAL, where we stitch a new ornament each month for any holiday.  My April ornament is C'est Noel, a freebie from The Sampler Girl. I used DMC Light Effects and DMC Satin floss (so slippery!).  One of these days I'll try to make these finishes into actual ornaments!

Since my last WIPocalypse update in March, I have had lots of finishes and progress on my SALs.

The Bear and the Bees is an old chart from The Prairie Schooler, but you can still find it HERE.
The Bear and the Bees - FINISHED!
These bookmarks will be Mother's Day gifts.  The free design is from Linen Flowers.
Names of Jesus bookmarks - FINISHED!
I stitched All's Good in the Hood by Kincavel Krosses for my son's birthday present.  It can be a housewarming gift too, since he just got a new job in a different state!

I started a new SAL with Linda for Thankful Critters, an Imaginating chart by Ursula Michael.  We stitch on this one every other weekend.  I'll stitch 1-2 letters each month so it will be finished by Thanksgiving.
Thankful Critters update #2
I'm also in a new SAL for Bothy Threads Cut Thru' designs.  I stitch the Igloo on Mondays.  When this is finished, I'll keep going and stitch another Cut Thru' from my WIP list, North Pole House and/or Pirate Ship.
Cut Thru' Igloo update #3
The current pics of all of my WIPs are always on my WIPocalypse page. Remember to check in on Measi's blog with a link to your WIPocalypse update, too!

Nice ornament, and great PS finish - well done.

Carrie said...

All of your stitching looks beautiful, as always! Love the finishes!

Have you ever finished, finished an ornament? I've stitched two so far for the SAL (I started late and I missed this month), but I haven't finished either into an actual ornament; I'm not sure I even know how! I lack finishing skills! HAHA

Have a great weekend!

The ornament looks great and so does all the stitching! Way to go.

Have you been able to get to my website yet, or is it still down for you? (I'll add you to the list manually if needed.)

You've been a busy bee Debbie! I love your PS finish. Uber adorable! The bookmarks are so pretty and delicate. I love Kincavel Krossess and have thought of stitching their "Wipe your Damn Feet" for a friend of mine. I thought it would look funny in a front foyer. I like the one you chose! Your cut thru is really coming along nicely too :D

Linda said...

Congrats on all the great finishes Debbie. Your needles on fire. The ornament is really pretty on that fabric. Love the colors you choose. And of course I love our SAL pieces.

Thanks for the visit and comment! I can't believe how much stuff you start and finish. Humorously, you might have gotten me to buy the Lizzie Kate very scary sampler which you aren't keen on. I love your work so far.
