May Ornament




Here is my May ornament by La-D-Da called Christmas heart. Not a new ornament to most of you I think. As, I have seen this one around several times. Still, it is one of my favorites. A couple of changes in mine as I didn't have a couple of the colors on hand. I used zach black by Crescent for the outline of the heart. The green in leaves called for dried thyme, but I used spring grass. The green is a little brighter, but I liked the effect. I am hoping to catch up by the end of July, but we will see. Thanks for your comments on my first needle book. I did enjoy that little finish-though I struggled a little with it. I haven't finished the pillow yet-procrastinating yes I know. Have a great week and happy stitching!

I've never seen it before. It's pretty. I like the colours you've used although I've no idea what the original one is like lol

Have a good week yourself.

Thanks for your anniversary wishes Sharon. Those 32 years have flown by.
Glad to hear Brandon's cast is off. Hopefully the brace will be easier to deal with.
Great job on your first needle book - a lovely finish. Love your Christmas heart.
