Two tiny ornaments I stitched this year. 

The robin was for my new great-grand-daughter (eeeekkk - am I that old?) Primrose. This pattern was an online freebie but sorry I cannot remember where I found it. *Edited* pattern can be found *here* Thank you Annie! I added Primrose's name at the bottom. It's stitched 1*2 with NPI silk threads on 48ct nacre Gander linen. 

The Merry Christmas was an adaptation of a Victoria Sampler freebie *here*   It is stitched on an unknown linen with NPI silk threads and Dentelles 80.

I am now stitching Beatrix Potter Birth Sampler 1 for Primrose but changing the blue thread to pink. I had planned on having this finished apart from the wording in time for her birth but she arrived 4 weeks early and then we were on vacation and then, before I looked around, it was time for Christmas stitching!

Primrose Anise Kent born on August 11, 2016  weighing 5lbs 12oz

I take this opportunity of wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Thanks for visiting
Take care
