Last Minute Ornaments

Life has become incredibly busy, and stitching time has been at a premium since September when I took on a second job. Needless to say I didn't have my wonderful stack of ornaments ready to go this holiday season!


It's always been my gift to the office administrators at work each year and I've got nothing ready. So over the last few days, when I haven't been working or sleeping I've been stitching. The end result is six super quick reindeers from the JBW Designs chart French Country Ornaments II 

They have been stitched over two on 28ct Quaker Country Linen with DMC 115 and Weeks Dye Works Hunter. Now I hope I can find the time and the energy to ornamentify them before Friday morning.

These are so cute. I don't usually stitch Christmas gifts because of the time concerns!
