Christmas Present Previews

I keep thinking that I should post some pictures of what I am working on…but I am working on Christmas presents for friends and family so I can’t post them until the New Year.  I am enjoying making them into ornaments more than I thought I would.

I’m going to show some of the edges on my ornaments.  I’m particularly happy with the red and green ribbon trim.

It’ll be a Margaret Sherry Christmas

I prefer to make Christmas presents for my family.  I’ve stitched two Leavitt-Imblum free angels, one Nora Corbet free cherub, a Martina Webber freebie and a Passione Ricamo freebie.  I went through the magazines that I have and found a bunch of Margaret Sherry designs that will make really cute ornaments.  So far I’ve gotten two done. 

Magaret Sherry 2009 Calendar

Chocoholic stitched up very quickly.  I stitched it on 22 count aida and had to convert anchor to dmc.  I am going to try getting some pink maribu trim for the edging.

This winter design took longer than it needed to.  I frogged the scarf and the head a couple of times.  Silly counting mistakes.  I’ll have to wash this one out, the floss I had to frog left behind a shadow.  They are small, only 3.5 inches around at most.  I am going to stitch a few of the designs from the 2009 Calendar.  I want to give a couple of them to co-workers this Christmas.
