The ornament is for the Monthly Ornament SAL and is a portion of the Fancy Work ornament from last years JCS Ornament Edition. It is stitched over 1 on a scrap of linen using left over threads and the shiny beads at the bottom are off a Christmas cracker making it a very economical ornament.
The reveal is for the January Monthly Challenge This months design was by Tra La La and proved very popular, there are lots of wonderful finishes in the album here, there are two pages so don't miss the 2nd one!
The overdyed floss is Chocolates from Carrie's Creations.
My finish is designed to answer the perrenial question in our house "Has anyone fed the cat?" The main part is finished like an ornament, with the hook part of a dressmakers hook and eye stitched in at the bottom edge. The second part is basically a very small ornament with AM on one side and PM on the other, which I finished with a beaded edge to give it a bit of weight, and which hangs onto the hook.
The whole thing is hanging above the fridge, and the basic idea is whoever feeds Spike turns it to face the appropriate way so the next person into the kitchen can see if he has had his breakfast/tea.
Its kind of working, 75% of us remember to turn it around. Guess who doesn't! (Clue: Its a he)
