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.

Nine little finishes - plus (belated)GG and Smalls SAL Report for May

My stitching focus for the month has been (as usual) Christmas ornaments. I have finished nine this month. My 'to stitch' list is slowly disappearing.  As soon as I have stitched all the small things on my list I hope to get back to stitching on my HAED Christmas Dreams.

This rather fuzzy pic doesn't really do justice to the ornament I have stitched for a niece (and god-daughter). The design is by Joy Averitt, published in Graphworks Leaflet 35, Mini Motif Designs Christmas Volume 7.

The next ornament, stitched for another niece, is a Sam Hawkins design published in A S N #3616, 50 Santas to Cross Stitch. I added the borders.

Stitched for another (very special) niece, this personalised feather tree ornament is based on the Country Tree designed by Dale Burdett, but I changed all the decorations, and stitched one of her family member's initials in each of the ornaments.

 This bead decorated Christmas tree (my own design) will be a take-home gift for a special Christmas visitor.

Another of my Christmas trees, this one decorated with tiny buttons and beads, stitched for another niece.
