Bride's Tree SAL Set #2

Well, I must say I have been enjoying my time off from work, but I had to go back today. Bah Humbug! I can't really say I accomplished any stitching while I was off, but...it was nice to just relax. Hopefully my schedule will be much more relaxed for the rest of the year and I will only have to work 2 weeks a month like I was originally hired to do. Hopefully that will also mean I can get more stitching done the rest of the year, like my train! :-)

Here are the two finishes I promised to post of my second set of Bride's Tree ornaments I am making for my nephew's wedding next year. I still haven't quite finished the third one yet.


For January:

Title: Home for Christmas (only part of design) by Brightneedle - in the JCS magazine ornament issue 2005 (I stitched the tree differently than how they had it in the pattern.)
Fabric: 28 ct. ivory linen
Threads used: Sampler, WDW & DMC







For February:


Title: Couer (only part of design) freebie
Fabric: 28 ct. Opalescent
Thread used: Warratah by Dinky Dyes







I missed last week's stitching group question of the week, but this week's is:

How did you choose your blog name? Is there a special reason behind it?

Well...It's obviously a play on words with my name. Plus, I live in the land of sunshine, so it all fits in together.
