I realized this month that I had better get some of my stitching finished into ornaments if I’m really going to have new ornaments for my tree this year. I went simple on my “Santa Ho-Ho-Ho” ornament. I simply mounted it onto flat sticky mountboard with green felt for the backing and added a simple crimson ribbon. He’s not “the perfect” ornament, but I’m happy with the way he turned out.
I also finally put this little guy, who is dragging lots of presents into a little frame.
I framed this miniature lady for my bedroom.
I finally finished off the cute penguin I stitched a couple of months ago into an ornament. The hanger and trim is simply braided floss that is wrapped around the ornament a couple of times.
I also finished off one of the bird ornaments that I stitched a couple of months ago into a pillow ornament. Here it is.
I did some stitching too. I stitched another little ornament called “Roly Poly Rudolph” from Cathy Habermann. This is beautiful bright-red 30-count liberty linen from Weeks Dye Works. All the threads are either from Weeks or The Gentle Arts. I really think his little chubby self is so cute!!
I stitched an ornament called “Star So Bright.” This one is unusual for me in that it uses mostly Crescent Colors threads. It’s my first project that uses those threads, so I thought that was cool.
I stitched another reindeer. This one’s called “Believe.” It’s on 32 count and is stitched over one. That made for a very densely stitched little project.
I also stitched a double-sided ornament called “Peace on Earth.” It uses all gentle arts threads, and I think it’s going to be beautiful when I get it made up into an ornament.
I also finished a little stitching for an ornament called “Thankful.”
I’m happy to have had such a productive month with these little stitches. I’m going to be focusing some on finishing off these stitches too this week so that my tree is happy in December as well 🙂
