Naughty November Start 2 - Little Girl with Ornament

Another weekend in November is gone already, and here is start (and finish!) number 2! Please check out Rachel's post so you can see who else is joining in the fun. 

Last week I'd started on Handblessings Little Girl with Teddy Bear ornament, and I managed to finish it since it was so close. I still need to add the charm:

stitched 2 over 2 with DMC Variations 4210 on 28ct Rubescent by Chromatic Alchemy

And the piece of fabric I had was just big enough that I could also fit on another Handblessings ornament. This past weekend I started Little Girl with Ornament:

I used the same fabric and thread, although I ran out of what I had with this much stitching left:

Fortunately my work isn't that far away from Michael's and despite the fact I was a little nervous going on with the increase in COVID-19 cases around here, I found what I needed and got in and out quickly. 

And then another finish besides needing the charm:

I'm still debating a bit for this weekend's start. I might pull out something small again since the last weekend will give me a bit more stitching time because it's Thanksgiving in the US and I have Thursday and Friday off. I have something that's been hiding in my stash for a while that's been waiting for a good excuse to start and I think this Naughty November challenge is it! 

I hope you're all staying healthy and safe and happy stitching!

  1. Oh, now you're just showing off!!!!!
    But seriously, two starts and two finishes is fab, and they both look fantastic! How fortunate that you were able to find another thread.
    The problem is, you've now given me food for thought for another challenge! :)

  8. These two look lovely! I like that thread too. I made a list of all the Variations and Colouris I need. Only another £58 worth and I have the entire collection!

    1. Thank you! I'm afraid to make that list, but that sounds fairly reasonable.

  9. Thank you! That's all I have for this year, but they are very sweet, and fairly quick with only one colour.
