Mystery in a Corner and Challenge Ornament

For you book bloggers, you will just have to bear with me, as I occasionally will be posting some needlework - and here is the first one! I have finished two designs by Gay Ann Rogers. The first one, Mystery in a Corner - she gave us a couple of options for the design (and we also picked our own colors) and for the Ornament - she gave us the design and left color and thread option completely up to us.
My mystery in a corner colors were picked by my daughter - she wanted something that would reflect Gryffindor's colors from Harry Potter (ok - so there is something here for the book bloggers!) Here is my finished piece:

For the ornament - I picked colors that I really love and my finished piece is here:

I really enjoyed being able to be free with my color choices, and in a lot of ways with my design choices. It has given me more confidence as a stitcher that I could also design something myself!

Wow, you made these?! They're beautiful! I envy people who can craft. My own crochet and knitting projects doesn't always turn out the way I want them.
