This is not the christmas theme, but I have tried to sew a biscornu together with pearls, and after that was not so difficult, as I had thought, I am dreaming of christmas decorations with pearls in gold, red , green, and silver or blue, and lots more.....

These are my first three completed ornaments for 2010. They are all stitched on 18 count Aida with DMC floss and Mill Hill beads plus some other non-branded beads. The larger ornament is adapted from a Barbara Mock design, from the 1992 Dimensions leaflet Christmas Quickies II. The candy cane ornaments are adapted from a Calendar design by Regina J Walters for Designs with Scissors in the February 1989 issue of Lesure Arts.
