I finished these two Christmas ornaments tonight. They're Christmas gifts for friends. The designs are both favourites of mine. The stocking is adapted from LA's Christmas Caboodle leaflet, and stitched over 1 on hardanger. The candycane chart is from the Designs with Scissors Calendar chart in the Feb 1989 issue of Leisure Arts magazine.

These little floral cushions are just 2.5cm (1 inch) square, and are stitched over 1 on 28 count linen, using 1 thread of DMC floss. I finished them using the diamond puff method. I made them to fit a 1:12 scale dollhouse. The designs are from an oldie but a goodie - LA's Leaflet 225, Sachets and Pincushions, designs by Anne Van Wagner Young, published in 1982. This photo shows the fronts: and this photo shows the cushion backs:
