Babs has an ornament!

The stitching on this one has been done, but finishing took awhile. I can't find my felt pieces...ever lost anything in your craft/stash room? Every Christmas fabric just didn't work for me. The green ric- rac is an aged green I found from Nancy. You guys should check her out, assuming my link is working.

My ornament is from Prairie Schooler's Cranberry Christmas, stitched on 32 ct. lambswool with dmc and backed with the fabric you see under it. I don't know I just went wild finishing it. I loved the greens that match both the trees and the ric-rac, the purple bees and I liked the gold/yellow stars.

Anyway, here it is, such as it is :)

There's a reason I'm late....kinda...

I know many of you are probably wondering why I signed up for this wonderful blog when all I have managed is a January ornament~~....Well, I have very good intentions and actually have had my Feb and March stitching done.. But, I wanted the perfect trim...  So, here is February's ornament..
I had stitched up this pattern by L'R de rien back at the end of December....And, when Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe came out with  her hand dyed chenille's, I knew I had to order some and use it on my ornament,,,,

So much that I decided to stitch it again!!!

And, yes, you will see a "10" in the top left corner of each ornament....Since my MIL passed away in 2010, and I want each of my sons to have these ornaments one day, I put "10" on each ornament as a way of honoring her and her love for Christamas.... She would have loved these ornaments also, as she was oh so fond of anything with a redbird on it!!

Well, I promise to not make my April ornament as late as these were....Happy stitching everyone!!

My March Ornament

Here's my March ornament. It's from the 2010 JCS Ornament issue, by Primrose Needleworks called Windows of Faith, Hope and Peace. I stitched it on a piece of 32ct Amber linen using GAST Cranberry and Roasted Marshmellow. I love how it stitched up. So far I'm 3 for 3 wonder if I can keep it up! That's for looking :)
Hugs, Michele

I am so sorry/ no new ornies

I joined the year long ornament blog, but so far, I've had exactly one ornament to show, and I frogged on my PS ornie last night thinking that I'd have it altogether today. Musta' been dreaming or something. So, do I need to un-sub myself right now or wait for ya'll to do it for me? Or do I get one more chance? hugs, Babs
