Two Down, Four To Go

I have another Happy Dance!  Yay me!

French Country - Mitten
c2007 JBW
Stitched on 40ct Linen
Stitched with DMC 115

Every year I stitch up an ornament for the girls in the office.  Last year all the ornaments were of a similar theme, I liked the idea I did it again this year!  Last year they received the JBW Stocking Ornaments white thread on red fabric.  This year they're going to get the JBW mittens, red thread on white fabric.


These work up pretty big on 28 count, so I'm stitching these up on 40ct linen.  As you can see my 4" scissors are bigger!  I'll wait to do the finishing once I've got all six ornaments stitched up!

Your mitten stitching is lovely! I can't wait to see how you finish it into an ornament. I have never stitched any ornaments, but thought I might give it a try this year. You are just whipping the projects out! You go girl!
