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.

Finished ornaments

I've finished five of the six ornaments I stitched in the last couple of weeks.  I'm having trouble deciding on the bead for the lacing on number 6, so it will have to wait till tomorrow. It's time I stopped for the night anyway - it's almost 2.30am, so I should be heading for bed. Here are the first three ornaments finished up.  These are for siblings Megan, David and Matthew.

Here are the other two ornaments I finished up tonight.  These are for Grace and Emma, two young sisters who like to have things the same.  This first pic is the front of the ornaments for the girls:
And this pic is the back of the ornaments (I spelled out their names in beads):

I'm having trouble scanning pics since my computer was upgraded.  Looks like my scanner doesn't work with Windows 7.  I'm sure there's an easy way of making it happen by downloading something and installing it - but really, I just don't have the necessary computer smarts to know where to start.  I'll have to call my nephew and see if he can help.  In the meantime I've resorted to the camera - I'm not really happy with the quality of the pics, but it's better than nothing. 

Goodnight ...

Tuesday morning.
I've popped back in to add the pic of the sixth ornament, now finished up.  This is for 12 yr old Miss Kate, who is a lover of cross stitch and comes to my house each Tuesday afternoon to stitch with me.  Her favourite colour is blue.  She's the older sister of Matthew, Megan and David.

The beaded ornaments are so beautiful! I am sure they will be treasured for ever.
