A Mill Hill Finish

As I said a couple of posts ago, I'm going to try and finish one Christmas ornament a month in 2022. I'm joining Carol from Stitching Dreams on her #12in22ornamentstitchalong

So, I've started by looking at my WIPs.  I found this cute Mill Hill Button and Bead kit in a box while I was looking for something else.  I think someone gave it to me because they didn't enjoy stitching on the perforated paper. 

I love these little kits, and don't mind the perforated paper at all.  If you haven't tried it before, just be very careful with unpicking, because the paper can rip if you pull too hard.

I've ordered a dark green frame for this one, and once it arrives it will be ready to join the others on the shelf at Christmas.

I feel quite pleased with myself that I've finished the first ornament for my #12in22ornamentstitchalong

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

So glad to see your perforated paper pieces! I just bought my first and your tip about picking/tearing is most helpful. Will be a nice change-up from needlepoint for a bit. Best, Betty A.

Such a darling ornament, Wendy. I have always admired Mill Hill designs , but have yet been brave enough to try. Have a great weekend and thank you for hosting the link party .

It's great for you to set a monthly goal like this! Though I doubt you really need more Christmas decorations. Ha, ha. Seeing all your creations reminds me of making oodles of such things back in the 1980s when I owned a counted cross-stitch shop called "The Stitchery Niche." I spent many, many hours making all sorts of stitched creations to display in my shop, and hang on the walls in my home. I taught lots of ccs classes too. I did enjoy stitching on perforated paper! Thanks for sharing your lovely pieces and giving me a moment to reminisce.
