Fair and Square

I did not get my big tree out this year as we have started to strip wallpaper as we were rewired earlier this year, but I did find a small tree which I decorated with the ornaments I have made and received in exchanges over the last 2 years.
Sonda let me know that she had received the squares I stitched for her in The Fair and Square Christmas Exchange, I had already stitched this once and made it into a biscornu for the HOE Christmas ornament so I stitched hers so she could finish it in the same way. it was stitched on 32ct antique white evenweave with recommended threads the pattern was from Novembers GOS.

That's my dream, a tree full of stitched ornaments, no matter if it's a big or a small one. But I don't have many ornaments as I'm a lousy ornament stitcher which means that I only think of stitching ornaments when it's too late, lol.
