Ornament of the month - June!
A large part of the reasons for the different fabrics is because I only have a limited amount of the fabric I chose for the ornaments. The pink Alexandrite pattern was stitched on white 18ct Aida as I just didn't have enough to make 4 ornaments this month. A choice had to be made and my dislike of pink made the choice easy.
I wasn't going to finish the embroidery as anything initially - but I do always stitch a sample of my patterns as I like to make sure they look the way I want them to, and for the pink I was glad I did as my original backstitching looked awful and I love how the tree/mistletoe like branches look that I thought of instead.
I hope you have been enjoying making the ornaments and hope that anyone who has made them and not posted them on deviant art lets me know here in a comment about them - I'm dying to see them! If you are on Deviant Art and I have not faved them then please drop me a note - I'd LOVE to add them to my collection! My dA account can be found here: Magical525. The usual suspects do not of course need to tell me as I already know about them (No, I'm totally not thinking of Leonore, Nancy and Carla noooooo not at alll)
