I was in Cobourg at Joyce's this morning and took this photo of her HAED "The Tempest" progress. It is coming along nicely but like everyone she did not get as much done over the holidays as she would usually. I worked on this ornament from JCS 2007 yesterday and today. This Woodlands Woodpecker (as he is called in the magazine) stitched up pretty fast with only a few colours in him. I still have to add a bead for his eye.
And here is my cardinal which I just love. He too was a pretty fast stitch and is also from the JCS 2007 Ornament issue. I sttiched him on dark green. He is shown on red fabric in the magazine but it was just a little too much red for me.
I was wondering to myself this weekend why I didn't do any ornaments last year. Then it came to me. I spent oodles of time doing about 35 or 40 name tags for my retreat in August. So really I did even more small ornament sized things...they just got finished differently!
