So far I have stitched and finish-finished 31 of the charts. I have stitched one more that is awaiting transformation into an ornament
I 'll probably select four more charts to bring the number up to three dozen.

And this is the backing fabric that I have used for all the ornaments . IRL it is a bit of a darker navy blue. When I rn out of the star dotted fabric, I used a bavy with white [olka dots in the sa,e scale.
A reader, in a recent comment, asked me to explain the Indy Town Square SAL. The simplest way to do so is to direct you to the SAL blog . I don't know if the charts are still available. If they are, obviously I think they are well worth obtaining. So many people have jumped on the various more expensive versions of a townful of buildings, e.g.: the various Hawk Run Hollow seasonal series and the LHN Cottage series and the Santa's Village series. I got 42 charts of buildings for the investment of $5. It seems a better bargain to me than any of the above. And the variety is amazing since, not only are there 42 different shops and public buildings, each is designed by a different designer. I am stitching mine as ornaments but people can stitch them as block style samplers like the HRH series, as afghans, or as separate smalls. It's an extremely versatile set of charts. I am maintaining unity in my ornament collection by using one of three very similar light to medium blue linens to stitch the ornaments and using the same backing fabric and homemade cording made from coordinating shades of blue DMC floss. I am not sure I will stitch every chart in the series but I do intend to stitch at least three dozen. I am not generally much of a shopper so visiting shops in cross stitch serves as my version of retail therapy ... with the added benefit that it is not nearly as expensive as the real deal.
