Seasons Greetings to all!!!

Seasons greetings to all my fellow stitchers and visitors!  I sincerely hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and that you are looking forward to the new year.  As usual, I had an enjoyable and peaceful day with my family.  I really wanted to show my Christmas ornaments  before Christmas day but I had not finish on time but as the saying goes, better late than never so here I am to show a set of ornaments made earlier year. First up is"Woodland Joy" designed by Something in Common Designs:



Design: Woodland Joy
Designer:  Something in Common
Fabric: White 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red and green grosgrain ribbon and
green and white backing fabric
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

I found this freebie pattern from long ago in my stash and decided that I must stitch it this year. Unfortunately, the site "Something in Common" is no longer available.

Next is The Prairie Schooler's a Christmas Visit:



Design: Ornament "Christmas" from A Christmas Visit
Designer:  Prairie Schooler
Fabric: White 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red cording and backing fabric
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

I chose this ornament because of its shape since I have never attempted a finish like this before.  It was a bit challenging but nevertheless I think I did a pretty good job but will make some changes if I ever do this type ornament again.

Another Prairie Schooler design:



Design: Motif from Prairie Stars
Designer:  The Prairie Schooler
Fabric: White 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red satin ribbon and backing fabric
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

I stitched this one sometime ago but only finished it this year.  I think he was my first santa ornament but I know he won't be my last as I intend to stitch many more santas from the Prairie Schooler.

Finally, but by no mean least for this post is "Biscornu de Noel" which can be found on novalee02.over-blog.com:



Design: Biscornu de Noel
Designer:  Carole
Fabric: White 28 count evenweave
Thread: DMC recommended
Trims: Red satin ribbon, gold cord and backing fabric
Finished as: Christmas Ornament

I love the backing fabric on this ornament!  It was given to me by my good friend and fellow stitcher, Joan which I found in my stash and I felt that it went nicely with the colours and pattern. By the way, you have to email Carole for this freebie.

Well, that's it for now so until next time when I will continue to show off my Christmas ornaments for 2013.
