June's Ornament & Celestial Progress

I had a very nice, quiet stitchy weekend... my favourite kind!
Sunday I managed to finish up the ornament I started on Saturday, unfortunately it did not keep me enthralled the way Celestial Dragon has.  But I stuck to my guns and finished it.

Peace
cR&P
Stitched on : 40ct linen
Stitched with : DMC 115

Of course as soon as I finished up with this little beauty, CD quickly came back out again!  Here's where I stopped late Sunday night.

Peace looks great.

I'm thinking I need to pick out some ornaments to work on when I don't have enough time to pull out the Earth Gatherers.

Myra said...

Pretty ornament! I really like DMC 115 for monochrome Christmas things.

CD looks better every time I see it.

There is nothing quite like a TWD in the works, and you can't just put it down as every blended combination adds life to the picture. Glad to see you are back to yourself. Have a great week. Oh, and it is to bad we are so far away because it would be one heck of a stitch to get together.
Be always in stitches.

I lvoe your ornament Dani. The colour is just gorgeous.

Fantastic progress on CD:)

Sylvia said...

Dani, I love the ornament. Great color choice. Cd is amazing. I love to see TWs come to life. You can visit my blog at nsaprof.blogspot.com.

Annie said...

It's fun to do a quick finish as a break from the larger pieces, especially a monochrome vs a TW! The ornie is really sweet. Nice to see you keeping up with the TW progress too.

Bonnie Brown said...

WOW! That Tail!! Can't wait to see this in person :)
Your ornament came out nice as well

Alice said...

Dani, I remember your ornament frenzy of last year... are you planning on doing the same thing again this year? What a nice gift for people to receive. CD is so gorgeous! Those colours are so scrumptious. I have a couple of TWs on the go and I know how much effort goes into them... well done!

As to your feeling much more yourself these days... I was speculating that maybe this winter was just too dreary for you. I know that I always 'perk up' this time of year. Sometimes I don't even realize I wasn't quite myself until all of a sudden I feel better. Whatever the reason, I'm glad that you are back again.
