On the stitching front I made good progress with the Tea Room last week, although I've not stitched on it so far this week as I have decided to stitch Christmas cards for my parents and mother-in-law. I have nearly finished one of them and have next week to stitch the other one. I will post pictures when they are made up into cards. I always stitch the same design so there can be no arguments and I can easily remember what I did. I think though that before too much longer I will be looking out a design for next years card so that I don't have this mad last minute panic.
I recently took part in the Christmas Ornament exchange on Stitch and Stash, Jayne's Attic Forums. I have never made and ornament before, the finishing always put me off. However, I decided to have a go and this is the result, made for Val. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out, although I feel the back could have been a little better, I'll know for next time.
This is the ornament that I received form Jayne. It's lovely and will be the first one to hang on my "specially bought for the purpose" ornament tree in the dining room.
