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.

A batch of Christmas Ornaments Finished (also- March report for Smalls SAL)

I am one happy girl tonight - I have finished up the last of my March batch of Christmas Ornaments. I have spent close to the past 2 weeks stitching these designs, and the past 3 days making them up.


First, three Jeremiah Junction nutcrackers (from Nutcracker III booklet) for three sisters from a nut-cracker loving family.



Christmas ornaments for a pair of sisters (neighbour children).  The Santa alphabet is from LA's Alphabets Galore booklet.



Christmas tree Christmas ornaments (my design) for another two neighbour children (siblings):



Christmas tree ornaments (my design) for two children (first cousins) who will, I hope, pay me a Christmas visit:



An ornament (my design) for the granddaughter of an old friend:



And finally, a Christmas ornament (my design) for a nephew and his partner:



So, time to pack away the beads, and return to Christmas Dreams - I'm actually going to be stitching page 1 this time.  It will be my sixth page, and will finish row 1 of 11.

I love nutcrackers so I obviously love the nutcracker ornaments. The trees you designed are gorgeous and I love that you did each set in different colors.

Each of your ornaments are so beautiful - you can tell my looking at them, they are created with such love and caring.

Marie said...

You certainly have stitched a number of beautiful Christmas ornaments! I really like how you personalized the back of the ornament. All of that breading is truly a labor of love!

Brigitte said...

What a wonderful collection of ornaments you stitched and finished.

Peggy said...

Great holiday ornaments!

I love all your different ornies. Is there a chart for the trees or do you make them up as you go along?

I am sure you've told us before and I've forgotten!

Thank you all for your kind comments. Since several people have commented on my Christmas trees, I will show some progress pics for the next one I stitch, and anyone who wishes to do so is welcome to use my design (loose as it is!) to create their own beaded Christmas tree ornaments. I have found them very popular with both children and adults, and they are certainly fun to stitch.

Annie said...

Heather said...

All your ornaments are absolutely lovely!

Thanks for taking part in the Smalls SAL.

You make such sweet ornaments!

I actually have the book the Santa alphabet is in; I'd never thought of doing individual letters up as ornaments. What a fantastic idea!
