Ornaments Finished!

I have finished the two ornaments for my new Great Niece and Great Nephew. Both were stitched on 14ct Aida using DMC threads. It is a design by Lizzie Kate although not quite as charted, I missed the stitches off around the edge. Sorry for the bad photo. I took this quickly to show my sister and then posted them off before taking a better one.

Yesterday was Sally's birthday and I wanted to stitch her a little something. It is a design by Lizzie Kate from one of the Tiny Tidings, I can't remember which one. It is stitched on 28ct Mushroom Jobelan using DMC threads. I have had an email from Sally to say she loved it. Thank you Sally for letting me use your photo.

Lastly, but by no means least, I received this lovely card and everlasting mistletoe from Nia. Thank you Nia. I have waved it around my boys but haven't managed to get a kiss yet lol.

I have managed to get all my Christmas shopping done, cards are wrote but have wrapping still to do. Hopefully it won't take much longer and then I can get back to stitching as I have a baby sampler to get done ready for my New Year's Eve get together.

I hope you like my new blog layout, I won't tell you how long it took to change it. I have also managed to delete my finishes page for 2011 whilst trying to update it.

Until next time, happy stitching

Two gorgeous little pillows for the little ones ~ very sweet and I love the sheepey gift for Sally, no wonder she was thrilled with it.
New layout is great, I'm not that brave and always get my DS to do it for me then I can blame him if my blog ends up lost in cyberspace ~ I'd have to borrow that mistletoe and torture with with Mum kisses!!!

Your ornaments are very nice and i think the will be cherished.

Blogger is sometimes not the best thing to be working with, i can't upload a new photo on the top, but i can post something new.

Happy Holiday's and happy stitching.

And good luck with the mistletoe.

Hugs Yvon.
