1 ornament finished and few stitches on Orchids

Hi everyone :D
So what have you been up to? Tons of stitching I hope ;)... Well, my needles have been working, almost non-stop and I totally finished my first ornie (although it's for one exchange I can show it here because I believe the person who is going to receive it doesn't follow me).... and finally I can share some pictures of recent projects eheheh
The front (design from Cross Stitcher Issue 244)
Stitched on evenweave 25ct 2x2

and the back (I got the letters on a google search xD)
stitched on evenweave 25ct 2x2

And yes I used a piece of dark blue jeans to make the finished ornament (I just love the contrast between the orange and the jeans)

Now I've also started the Orchids for my other grandma (my father's mother) that I plan to finish before Christmas so that I can give it to her as a X-mas gifts, my grandma loves Orchids and I believe that by now she must have one Orchid of each type at home (for those who are plant lovers you must see my grandma's house, she is amazing with plants, and her house is literately covered in plants, I must take some photos next time I'm there) so I've only put in around 300 stitches tonight but I think it might be quicker to do than the MP, and if I'm lucky I'll be able to leave it at home for framing when I'll be there by the end of this month :D
and this is the first WIP of it, a bit of the top bar:

Hope you like it :D
And Happy Stitches
