Six initials, an alphabet and a birthday!

At last I finished the six ornaments for the children! From the top, Thomas (age 13), Georgia (age 9), Alex (age 13), Jack (age 17), Kirby (age 21) and Megan (aged 15). These ornaments are all stitched from a Sajou alphabet with HDF Perfect Red 6215 on 32ct count raw linen. I also used a white silk thread on the girls' initials and finished the outer edges with white Delica beads - the ones for the boys I left plain. The red and white alphabet ornament at the bottom is stitched 1*1 on 35ct white Brussels linen with HDF OMG Red 1149 and the pattern is Coeurs d'oiseaux from François Prax Miniatures au point de croix book - see *here*

As you can see we had more snow overnight. It snowed on my birthday last year too. No plans for today except to put a few stitches in Jane Rees.

Thanks for visiting
Take care
