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.

WIPocalypse Report for May

Here we are again - another month passed by and I really don't have a lot to show for it.  I did finish my Dimensions kit Santa's Secret, and  have stitched but not yet made up three Christmas ornaments, and I stitched a double-sided design for a pendant.

Santa's Secret

Santa Ornament
Santa ornament designed by Melinda Blackman,
 from Cross My Heart's "Christmas Magic" booklet (1992)

Stocking Ornament
I adapted the holly border from a DMC freebie Holly Alphabet by Katherine Martin Tripp.
  I changed the floss colours and substituted red Delica beads for the white cross stitches in the chart.
The rest of the ornament was my design.

Angel Ornament
The angels were adapted from a Pat Waters angel chart in A Christmas Collection (1986),
The rest of the ornament was my design.

Pendant front
Pendant back
The Santa chart was adapted from a rag rug chart in LA's premier issue of Celebrations magazine.  The tree just grew as I stitched.

So that's my lot for this month.  I'll be making up this batch of ornaments next, and hope to have a few more finished ornaments for the next WIPocalypse day.
