Christmas Tree Toys

Look at my new christmas tree toys. The center of these toys was stitched on linen by DMC 115 threads. The charts are from magazines The Cross Stitcher and Point de croix.

I've been busy stitching things for exchanges & knitting for felted handbags - but I finally stitched an ornament!!

"Joy" is from the 2007 JCS ornament issue.

October and November Ornaments

These are the ornaments that I am doing for gifts this year. The first two are by Brittercup Designs (Poinsettia and Christmas Puppy) from the 2007 and 2006 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issues. The third is Curious Reindeer from the 2007 BH&G Christmas Book. I changed most of the threads and stitched them all over one. The fabrics are a Silkweaver Solo, China Pearl Jobelan, and SMF Leprechaun.

Going on......

....with some freebies from there. I am not so happy with the snowmen, would have been better to finish them in circles. I will give them away to a family with two little boys...

And then two ornaments in red from JCS

catching up?

I have been stitching ornaments, and even finishing them, but then I hide them away till it's time to send them to their new owners. So, I keep forgetting to include them here. Oops.

The Needle's Prayse, The Gift
stitched one-over-two on 36 ct ivory linen

I'm sure there are more, but at least it's a start. ;)


Yes I'm thick, I did one last month and never included it because I'd 'forgotten' all about it!
