October ornaments

Both these designs are favourites, which I have stitched many times. Both are stitched with 1 strand on 22 count white hardanger. The candycane is adapted from Designs With Scissors' Calendar chart in the Feb 1989 issue of Leisure Arts. The stocking is adapted from LA's Christmas Caboodle leaflet.

Love your ornaments! Did you use pins around the edges, or are those beads sewn around? Happy Stitching! :)

Anne, they're beads - I attached them as I laced the front and back together. It's my favourite way to finish an ornament of almost any shape.

Thanks Elfie. I wondered as I have a large bag of beads I haven't used yet, and thought your idea was great to use some one day!! :)
