Christmas cross stitch ornament update...

My Christmas in June cross stitch fest has now become Christmas in September as I continue to plug away at this Little House Needlworks ornament, "Bringing Home the Tree". You can see my last post about it here.


I am stitching it on a 40ct linen and using specialty threads. It is slow progress despite the ornament's seemingly small size. This is my first Christmas ornie and I am surprised at how many hours it has taken me to stitch. I really need to stitch her head by the way as it bugs me seeing her headless in the photo.

Hopefully I will finish it before Christmas!!!

Have a stitchy weekend...

I always think it takes longer to stitch on the smaller count fabrics, when I stitch over 1 it seems to be at a snails pace!

Your ornie looks great
