And the Ornaments Continue.....

Hi again to all my stitching friends and visitors.

Today I continue to highlight my ornaments for this year.  Here is a cute little fellow I knew I had to stitch  from the first time I saw him - "Festive Owl".

Design: Festive Owl
Designer:  Holly's Hobbies
Fabric: Gray 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red satin ribbon and
green and white backing fabric
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

From here I will let the pictures to the talking:

Design: Fill with Love
Designer:  Cathy Coombes
JCS 2007 special Christmas Issue
Fabric: Gray 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Green satin ribbon and jingle bells
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

Design: Santa Sack
Fabric: White 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red and multicoloured ribbon
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

This particular ornament reminds me of the traditional drink sorrel which we here in Barbados drink at Christmas time.  It has a ruby colour and has a bit of a tangy taste. We dry the pods and then steep them in water until it is ready to drink. 

Design: Noel
Designer: Unknown
Fabric: Gray 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC 
Trims: Ruby red ruched satin ribbon 
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

Design: Merry Christmas
Designer:  Nan - Threadwork Primitives
Fabric: Cream 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red satin ribbon and holly
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

Design: Emmanuel 
Designer:  Plum Street Samplers
Fabric: Beige 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Cream Grosgrain ribbon 
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

And here they are all together.  For me it is hard to pick a favourite because I like them all but if I had to really choose I would choose Woodland Joy with Emmanuel being a close second.  I found that they were easy, fun and enjoyable to stitch.

So, that's my ornament offering for 2013.  I do hope you enjoyed being here and I hope you will visit again soon.
