Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Five ornaments finished, but they don't reduce my stitching list at all, as they weren't on it.  A friend asked me to stitch these for her five American great-nieces and great-nephews.

I stitched these ornaments on 26 count Dublin linen.  The fronts are mostly stitched over two, except for the koala, which is stitched over 1. The backs are stitched over 1.  The koala and kangaroo designs are by Di Noyce, published in Jill Oxton' s Cross Stitch Australia magazine.  The stocking design is adapted from a chart in LA's Christmas Caboodle leaflet, though I have changed all the colours, and the pattern and contents of the stockings.
