Ornament fever continues! I have enjoyed working on these small projects and thought I would continue with them. It is nice to complete a project and experience that joy that comes with finishing something (however small it may be).
There are 5 charts in this series. They are stitched on 14-count perforated plastic and will be backed with black felt. They appeared in the December 2006 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine.
I wanted to start with Rallie because I liked his hat.
Here is my progress after a few days.
Side note: I started this project because I liked his hat, then I went and stitched it in the wrong color! What a dumbass! The pattern calls for stitching it in a beautiful blue color (DMC# 311) but, for some reason, when I looked at the chart I saw DMC# 310 (black). I didn’t realize my mistake until the whole thing was stitched! But, to be fair, top hats are usually black and it didn’t appear weird to me at the time that I was stitching a black hat. Oh well, I think it turned out okay. I may end of gifting this one and restitching it in the correct color for my tree. But, shhhhhh – don’t tell anyone.
