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 Report for February

It's been an unusual month for me, but I do have some stitching to show for it. In the past 2 weeks I have finished up the five Christmas ornaments I stitched in January, and I have also stitched and finished up two little stocking Christmas ornaments.

Here are my Christmas Tree ornaments:






And a snowperson ornament which will be travelling to New York state this Christmas. The chart is from BH&G's  book '101 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs' (1999).



And the little stockings which I have just finished up. They will be flying to New Zealand this Christmas. The stockings are under 3" tall.  I adapted the Santa stocking design in LA#3428 'Christmas Ornaments' book, Kooler Design Studio originally charted for plastic canvas, so that the outline was smoother,  and stitched a back.




So, there we go.  I'm looking forward to visiting all the Smalls reports to see what has been stitched in February.

Those little stockings are so sweet! I can imagine how gorgeous they'll look hung on a tree. Beautiful trees too; I especially like Fin's blue one. :)

I love the little stockings! Do you put a small piece of candy in them? I suppose it's safer to send without though.

I always like your little trees and the stocking are particularly cute. I like the way you stitch your initials to be inside each one.
