Thank you so much, Jennifer, for allowing me to join. I'm Sally, I'm a SAHM to 2 teenage girls and I live in a small seaside town on the east coast of England. I have joined to stitch at least one Christmas ornament each month starting in 2009. I had planned to do that this year but it just didn't happen so thought joining here would give me the incentive to do it next year:)
I have stitched a few ornaments recently so here's the ones I can show so far.
Here are all my ornaments that I have done this year minus the house one that is on one of my trees (totally forgot about it) and 2 peace angels, that I have already given to the lady I take care of. It has been a good year for ornaments and stockings (I made 5 of them) Have a great day stitching. God Bless our Military. huggerz laurel
I finished another ornament this morning. It's from the JCS 2008 Christmas Ornaments magazine by Blackbird Designs. Stitched on 30 count Kortys Special Blend by R & R Reproductions with DMC Threads. It measures 3 inches wide by 3 & 1/2 inches long.
I hadn't stitched many ornaments in a while, but 2 weekends ago, I got the ornament bug. This is what was born from the weekend. The one in the upper left is from Prairie Schooler and the 97or 98 JCS ornie issue. The upper right one is a Cricket Collection freebie from their website, and the one on the bottom is from LK Tiny Tidings from this year. The upper 2 are for exhanges. I think they all turned out really well. Thanks for looking!
Although I got rather behind with my Christmas stitching I have managed to finish another Mill Hill Christmas Kit called 'Peace' from their 2008 release. I did not stitch the dove as per the chart but added a dove charm which I prefer
H Hi Everyone, I got a bit behind in October, but have now caught up. The Santa & Reindeer are by Prairie Schooler, Leaflet 151 'Santas & Snowmen', stitched on 32 count Jobelan with DMC threads. The Biscornu is by Cherished Stitches from the 2008 JCS Christmas Ornaments issue, stitched on 28 count Jobelan with DMC threads & Mill Hill Beads. The cards are stitched on 25 count Evenweave with DMC threads and are freebies found here.
This was certainly a good year for my ornaments! so many made! most already mailed! and a few left for my own tree! have to make more now! Think I need to add some beads and edging to some of these to finish them up!

I have been busy stitching and finishing loads of ornaments for some personal exchanges and gifts for family/friends. This is my latest finish and probably my favorite so far. More pics and details on my blog.
