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.

Smalls SAL - February Report

This month, I stitched two small designs, and made them up into Christmas ornaments for a great-niece and a great-nephew (first cousins).


Both of these designs are oldies but goodies.  The toy soldier is from Barbara Mock's 1990 Christmas Quickies (Dimensions #175), and the stocking design is adapted from LA's 1986 Christmas Caboodle #4 leaflet.  I changed most of the floss colours on both, and the stocking pattern and contents.  I did enjoy stitching these little ornaments (to be truthful, I almost always do like stitching Christmas ornaments!).

Lovely work on your latest two ornies. I do like the way you finish each one. They really indentify them as "your work"!
