Well as my blog title says, I had a productive weekend! A fair amount of Saturday was doing two framing jobs. Here they are :
When I wasn't busy framing on Satruday I was working on my Ivy (Holly & Ivy Ornaments) Ornament. I was able to pick up my ornament this morning and finish it in the early afternoon today (Sunday).
The Holly & The Ivy - Ivy Side
c2008 Dragon Dreams
Stitched on : 28ct Mushroom Jazlyn
Stitched with : DMC & Kreinik #4 Braid
When that was finished I saw this lovely ornament on Carol's blog and decided, this was going to be my next start. I even managed to finish it tonight! The "dots" inside the border of the ornament was charted to be a stitch, but I decided to use a bead instead to "jazz" it up a little.
The Red Noel Ornament

I think I might now have enough ornaemnts for gifts this Christmas... tomorrow I'll make up my list and make sure!
Oh and there are days... I wish I was a cat! Hunter makes it look so easy.
