Just under the wire...again! This is my February ornament (I still have to add the ribbon hanger). It is from Blackbird Designs' Casting a Spell, and is called Black Cat.
I used the called for threads, but I actually stitched the cat in black, not the dark dark brown it called for. You can't really tell in the photo, but you can in "real life"!

Here is my February finish - a real cutie from JCS Halloween Ornament Magazine 2012:
"Waiting" by Fern Ridge Collections (p.18). I have my next piece all ready to start this morning on the train to work - also from the same magazine.
It is lovely to see everyone's finished pieces,
I stitched it on my favourite Burnt Orange Jazlyn 28count fabric. 1 over 1 using Anchor Black and a touch of DMC 728. I experimented with the Anchor to see if it covered better than DMC Black. It doesn't, but it's no worse either!
I'm not sure how I'll finish this one. It's very small so would make a nice little sausage pillow.
Here is how I finished January's piece for my scrapbook:
Have a nice day!:-)

Here is my finish for February:
This is a freebie pattern by Our Pioneer Homestead called Black Cat Inn. I used 32-count Belfast Light Terra Cotta Fabric. I was going to use DMC 310 Floss but changed my mind and used Crescent Colours Hand Dyed "Blackbird" floss.

Thanks to everyone who is making the SAL such a success. Can;t wait to see all those February Cats.

I decided to do Mandy Cat in Witches Hat from the 2012 Just Cross Stitch issue. The only floss color needed is 310. It shows it being stitched on an orange 14ct aida but since I didn't have that color, and money is very tight, I picked a yellow color from my stash. I've had it for years, I think my aunt gave it to me, and had never found anything to do with it. Hopefully it works for this design! I will post a pic of my progress when I can.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Feb. starts, can't wait to see the wonderful finishes!
All the ornaments from January look great everyone!!! Good luck on this month's picks.
Fabric: 35 count Edinburgh Sand Linen
Thanks for looking!
