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.

Three more Christmas ornaments

It's been a sad time for me over the past three weeks.  My Dad finally lost his hard-fought battle with heart, kidney, and liver failure.  He almost made it to his 92nd birthday.  He suffered in his last weeks, and so did his family. It was a blessing to see him at peace.

I've hardly picked up a needle in the past few weeks, and I must say I didn't really feel like stitching today, but I had a stern chat with myself and feel a lot better for having finished up these three ornaments, which were waiting in my basket for finishing.

This is adapted from a Renee Nanneman in Need'l Love Company's L10-HN "Huckleberry Noel".  I changed the message from "Christmas Love" to "Christmas Joy".

These two ornaments just grew as I stitched.

Two Santa ornaments

I stitched these as Christmas gifts for two friends - former work colleagues.  The Santa designs are from Dimensions #175 'Christmas Quickies' by Barbara Mock.

I'm getting towards the end of my Christmas ornament list for 2014 - I feel a larger project coming on!
