This month I have 11 stitched designs to show. They will all be made up into Christmas ornaments.
First, three little gingerbread babies for three of our extended family dogs. I found the gingerbread chart in LA's Christmas Caboodle #4 leaflet (1986), and I did make just a few little changes. I used the same chart to stitch Oliver's ornament.
I do like stitching gingerbread designs, so I stitched another pair for a great-nephew, using a different chart by Barbara Mock from the Christmas Quickies II booklet.
This Santa Teddy is one of my all-time favourites. Most of the children I know have one of these hanging on their Christmas Tree. The designer is Dale Burdett, and my chart is from A Mini Christmas (1990).
Another favourite design (on reflection, I have rather a lot of favourites!) is this little DMC on-line freebie. This one is waiting for baby's name. Baby is already 12 days old, and her parents have chosen a name but can't decide on the way to spell it.
This next Baby's First Christmas is for a new little neighbour, a girl not yet named, expected to arrive in April.
Two little angels adapted from TIAG designs. The first one is for one of my oldest friends. The second one is for a nephew and his partner.

Last but not least, Three French Hens, the third of the 12 Days ornament set I am stitching for myself this year. I took this design from a DMC leaflet called La Ferme.
I will be stitching a few more designs in the next week or so, and plan to make them all up into Christmas ornaments before the end of the month.
