"Christmas Red Ornament"
Sally's 2009 Christmas Lights from Rainbow Gallery
Offered by The Stitching Post in Catonsville, Maryland
This was a very quick and fun stitch. I’m already working on the February Green Ornament which I hope to share with you soon!
I know that I have the original patterns that were designed by Susan for Rainbow Gallery in my stash. Hmm, I’ll have to find those when I start organizing again! :-)
By the way, the top of the ornament is actually gold which just wouldn’t photograph well! Especially with the gray skies we have been having with all of this snow. I’ll post a second picture below which hopefully shows the gold better. Sigh…
I decided to stitch the Christmas Lights as the series that I’ll be stitching will participating in Yoyo’s 2010 Christmas Stitch-a-Long. Yoyo decided in November, 2009 that she needed some encouragement to work on her Christmas designs. So she decided to create the 2010 Christmas SAL. The rules are very loose and you can read them by clicking on the 2010 Christmas SAL links.
Basically, the participants are to pick a design or series of designs that they want to stitch that have a Christmas theme. The goal is to spend the first week of each month working on this project. Did I mention that the rules were loose? Yoyo just asks that we send her a new photo by the end of each month so that she can post the photo in our Christmas SAL photo album. Hopefully by the end of year we will have made a lot of progress and we meet some new stitchers and have some new fun blogs to read. :-)
If you think that Yoyo’s name sounds familiar that’s because she is the creator of the Totally Useless SAL!
