Christmas Ornaments

This little collection of cross stitch ornaments are ones I’ve designed for the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament magazine these past few years. There is one missing, but I’m sure I’ll  find it when we put up our tree and pull out all of the stitched ornaments. 

It’s fun to be invited to submit an ornament each year.  I have the 2020 ornament all stitched. But no peeks before the issue is released next fall.
Do you decorate for the holidays with hand stitched decorations?   I love pulling out my hand stitched treasures and decorating the tree. I arrange larger pieces that I finished into pillows around the bottom. One side benefit is that stitched ornaments don’t break when naughty kitties try to rearrange the tree.

Happy Stitching,  Wendy

2019 ~ At a Glance

This poor blog has been so lonely this year while we've been putting in the grass, flowerbeds, garden boxes, and trees in our new yard. I'll do a post soon of what we did this summer.  Here is a quick rundown of my new released charts this year.

 This little Plum Posies Pinkeep is a fun little stitch with soft, subtle colors.

 Sweet Baby is a fun Baby Sampler that is easy to personalize. The chart has two colorways.  I got a new grand daughter in August, so now I can add her info to the pink version and she will match her brother.

This years Monthly Squared series was a fun one. They were released individually and are fun, quick projects. I found a square frame at Hobby Lobby and had them cut me twelve squares of foam board to size and I was able to mount the finished square and switch them into the frame to display.  

Come back and visit again.  I'll have a peek of what is coming next year,

Happy Stitching, Wendy
