Christmas Banners Stitch-a-Long, part 5

Hi everybody -- somehow another three weeks has passed. I've been working on the second Christmas Banner for the few weeks, making good progress. Here's where I was last time: 

This time I appliqu├ęd the rest of the animals, which looks like more progress than it is, I assure you!

For our next check-in on June 9 I hope to have all of the embroidery done on the animals and be ready to start on the sequins. 

The other stitchers in this stitch-a-long are always working on amazingly beautiful and diverse projects. Go check out their blogs and get inspired! Avis, Claire, Gun, Christina, KathyMargaret, JackieMegan, Deborah, Sharon, Daisy, Cathie, LindaMary Margaret, and Cindy.

Halloween Ornaments Project, May 2024

In April I made a little cross-stitched ornament taken from a Prairie Schooler leaflet, Boo To You:

I was determined to make one, but ended up making two because they were really satisfying to stitch: 

Next month I plan on doing two more from this set: 

I think I'll do the cat and the witch as both of them make me smile. 

I'll be back on June 13 to share my finished ornament and my next project pick.
