First of Four Christmas Stitchy Gifts

Here is the finished ornament I made for my mom this Christmas.  I finished the four ornaments that I had stitched for gifts the weekend before Christmas and 2 days before we flew to my parents place for the holiday!  Nothing like leaving it to the last minute...good thing I do well under pressure!

Let it Snow by Country Cottage Needleworks
2008 JCS Ornament Issue
Fabric:  32 ct. Platinum Belfast Linen
Fibre's:  Recommend DMC
Embellishments:  Mill Hill Seed Beads for snowflakes

My darling hubby gave me the sweetest compliment when I showed him the finished ornaments...he said they were not just gifts but heirlooms.  Isn't that so sweet?  He is the best!

My mom really liked her ornament and appreciates the time and love that went into making it.  I just LOVE this hobby, what about you???

I'm going to post my other 3 ornaments over the next 3's nice having something to blog about!

Happy Stitching!

Oooo, your Let It Snow ornament turned out lovely! The ribbon hanger you used is so pretty.

Yes, this is the best hobby ever!
