Ornaments

I worked on several ornaments this past week-two for Halloween and one for Christmas. My first Halloween ornament is from Cats, Bats and Witches by Prairie Schooler- I loved the clock-tower in this one.



My second Halloween ornament is from the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue: Halloween Acorn House by Jeannette Douglas. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to finish both of them.





DH and I flew to Los Angeles this past weekend for a wedding, and I decided to bring a Christmas ornament-Pine Tree Inn by Little House Needleworks- to work on while waiting in the airport and on the plane. I found cross-stitching to be very calming while we sat on the runway for 30 minutes in LA because Las Vegas had traffic congestion problems, and we couldn't take off. I was happy that I had more stitching time instead of worrying over when we would be leaving.



Lastly, my progress on the birth record (I also worked on this one at the airport).


Thanks for stopping by!

I love your Halloween ornaments they are adorable - just out of interest, how are you finishing them?

Two gorgeous finishes. Look forward to seeing how you finish them. Lovely new start and great progress on the birth sampler.

I haven't quite decided how to finish them yet. For the Halloween Acorn one, I think I will try finishing it as suggested in the magazine. I will definitely take pics when I am done.
