Yesterday was reveal day for the monthly challenge on Jayne's Attic. We had a choice of several complimentary designs this month and I chose 'Acorns and Owls' by Blue Ribbons Designs. This one has been on my 'to do pile' for a while and I already had the perfect fabric for finishing - you can't see much of it from the photo but it has a little acorn print on it. I used 40ct Light Espresso R & R Linen with the listed Gentle Art Sampler Threads. The little trinket tray/bon bon dish finish is another first for me that I've been wanting to try. I really enjoy these monthly challenges and can't wait to find out what we'll be up to next month!
This morning I received my JCS Christmas Ornaments preview issue. I've been really looking forward to this one arriving and was going to start on the Country Cottage Needleworks 'Silver and Blue' ornament first but now that I've seen 'Joyful Blessings' from Blue Ribbon Designs I just can't make up my mind which to start first! Will definitely be doing them both though!
