June ornament finished


I finished my ornament for June last night......I knew it would be done over the weekend. I enjoyed stitching this one!
It is Christmas Cottage by Blue Ribbon Designs. It was in the current JCS magazine.
I used Picture this Plus "Earthen" fabric. For the flosses, I used a few of the called for WDW colors & the rest were the DMC subs.... I like how it turned out & now need to have a finishing day...
Today, I plan to work on my LHN piece for the month. I haven't touched it yet either. The summer gets so busy with other activities, my stitching time goes way down. But, I think today I can do some stitching!
Have a great day everyone!!! Thanks for stopping by my little spot on the web!

What a cute finish, Shari! Yes, I know what you mean about stitching time in the summer--too many outdoor activities and chores, aren't there?

Hope you enjoy a wonderful 4th of July weekend :)

I love this one too, Shari.
You did a great job on it.

Yes, the summer does bring extra activities that keep us busy. In my case, it seemed to be all spring! Most of it was good, so I'm not complaining. I DO LOVE my stitching time though :)

Have a Happy 4th!

Congratulations on your finish!

There are times when I have less time for the fun things I like to do (stitching, knitting, quilting) and sometimes that makes me a bit cranky. It really is very soothing for me.
