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.
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.
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.
