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.

Gifted Gorgeousness Report (slightly late)

I'm a little late (sometimes life just gets in the way), but as my Granny used to say, better late than never.  I'm working my way through my gift list for Christmas 2015, and this month I have eight Christmas ornaments finished, and another one stitched and almost ready to finish.

Full designer details are in previous posts.

I am stitching this next ornament to give to my sister Gayle, who is besotted by cherubs, and likes a little bling.  I've stitched the design and have just started on a border (which will contain soem beads when I have finished it).

The chart came from LA2970, Angel Alphabet.
  The designers are Nancy Dokter and Linda Culp Calhoun.
I stitched this as charted, using  the purple clothing choice.
The only change I made was to add some gold blending filament to the cherub's wings.

I'm hoping that for the next report (and I will try to make it on time) I will have finished all the ornaments on my Christmas stitching list - even the two not yet added to the list!

Such lucky folks who will be getting one of your Christmas ornaments to hang on their tree this year.

Your ornaments are SOO beautiful! It would be interesting to see how you make them? How do you do the beautiful borders and the handles? I would just love to see a how-to-make-them post - my own finishing skills are seriously lacking...!
