Friday Freebie: Ornament of the Month - February

Welcome to the second part of the Ornament of the Month for this year! This month we are doing purple again, but this time a bit lighter. I did find time to do part of a pre-stitch this month and it's a good thing too! What looked fantastic on paper turned out to look like a nasty mess once stitched. Fortunately after a couple of tries I found what I liked and looks nice!

It's not finished yet as I spent so much time first making 33 photos of step by step instructions for the failed version and then trying out the other things I wanted (not to mention the extended nap needed after getting up extra early for blood tests. I had to bicycle 20 minutes before food/coffee/meds give the blood and bike back with only half an energy bar as food as I'd forgotten to put a new one in my handbag in my rush to get there)

I won't be adding beads till after all the stitching is done so they don't get in the way of the hoop as I move it around.

You can find the pattern here

I hope you have a great weekend! I'll see you next week for the next Weavers Tapestry band Sample SAL section, my WIP Wednesday post, and of course the next Friday freebie!
