...and so they are finished. It has been great to have this group to stitch along with.
This won't be the best way to display the set, but it does show them as a group. The individuals have been posted along the way. I did buy the tree for them, but they're larger than I anticipated, so the tree will come in handy for other ornaments, and my plan for these is to go into my son's "hope chest" for some day in the future.
Click on the image to see a little better. This on shows the tiny tatted ring I made for each as a hanger. They will be best with an actual hanger, which I will include, but for now they're hung by the thread.

"A Prairie Year"
27ct. Natural Linen
With this ornament, my Bride's Tree ornament set is complete, even finished! Here is a picture of all 12 ornaments. They are in order of the months they represent.
Thanks to Jennifer for organizing this SAL. It is a great way to get a set of ornaments done by Christmas. I had alot of fun with it.
My set will be going to my friend's daughter as a wedding gift.

My name is Carolyn & I'm excited about stitching these ornaments. I plan to start in Jan. and hopefully keep up with the months. I've been looking at all of yours and they are lovely - such an encouragement to get them done. Thanks for the inspiration!

Looks like October is our month to get creative!!
This has been a tougher theme to find freebies for, but I did manage to come up with three that will work. I've also provided links to various patterns that you can purchase (or find in your stash) that have pinecones somewhere in them. Some of the patterns may be too big for an ornament, but you can always borrow a piece or two from them and fashion your own ornament.
As always, if you spot any more freebie or patterns for purchase featuring pinecones, please let me know!

I actually finished my rose at the end of August, just been a bit slow at posting to the blog.
The design is a Prairie Schooler from a small card I bought on E Bay. Stitched on 27 count Linda Evenweave with DMC Threads.
Happy stitching, Sue in Australia.

Designer: Blackbird Designs
Stitched on: 28 ct. evenweave that had been coffee stained
Threads used: recommended, except used Oatmeal instead of Straw Bonnet. The Straw Bonnet didn't show up on the fabric.
Design stitched over one.
I just realized that I hadn't yet posted the freebies for August's theme of "rose", so that's been taken care of. All of the links should be working properly, but if they aren't, please let me know.

I combined Joy and Peace from Lizzie Kate's Blessings of Christmas series.
I changed the border to black (not white) and the word to red (not green).
Sorry for not ironing first. :-)

Here's my July SAL ornament. Yes, I realize it's still only June, but I'm trying to get ahead, as I know that the end of the year is going to be crazy here. Isn't it everywhere?
I just learned that scuppernong is a type of grape, while looking up the spelling on the 'net.
Well, it seems I am running a little behind this month. I don't have the finishing done on my ornament, but I do have the stitching done.
This is the Strawberry Fob/Pinkeep pattern from Little Stitches. Instead of using the suggested DMC Flosses, I used 3 DMC Variations. I will be finishing this and then update this posting.
Okay, as promised, here is my finished ornament.
