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.

Major HD in my house - all my Christmas ornaments finished!

Today I finished up the last of my final batch of Christmas ornaments for 2015.  So, here they are:

The teddy is a DMC freebie from their website.  I changed most of the colours.

The stocking design is heavily adapted from a chart in LA'sChristmas Caboodle leaflet.
  I changed the colours, pattern of the stocking, and contents of the stocking.

My own design.

And I re-made up an ornament I stitched 25+ years ago for a niece.  When I stitched it, I framed it in a small round red flexi-frame, and over the years it deteriorated.  My sister gave it back to me to see if I could repair it.  So I pulled it apart, washed the design, found some matching fabric for a back, and made it up into an ornament.  I haven't decided if I will return it to my sister - I might just keep it as a souvenir.
It's the stocking design (as charted, except for some colour changes)
from LA's Christmas Caboodle leaflet.

Now I can get started on a name sampler for a young cousin (another Christmas gift).

All are beautiful, but I especially like the trees with the little stars on.
