Whole Lotta Stitching Going On

I've been busy stitching a lot of little projects the last little while.  My mom talked me into stitching an ornament for 2 of her friends. One good thing happened while she was looking through all my JCS Ornament Issues. I now know what I'm stitching her for Christmas! I never, in a million years, would have thought she would like what she did.


Get Into the Spirit by Brittercup Designs:


I used a gray-fuzzy-metallic fibre that I had in my stash for the kitties hat instead of the ugly mustard yellow that was charted.  It's really fuzzy and adds a lot of dimension to the project.  I wasn't thrilled about stitching this at first but it's been fun. 

I'm catching up with my LHN monthly ornaments too.  He's A Flake:




Snowy Pines:


Winter Sheep:


I'm also finish-finishing a Halloween stitch for HoE Halloween exchange.  I'm really excited to show you that one!  It's turning out super cute!

Happy Stitching!

Fantastic job on the ornaments! Is the Brittercup design the one your Mom liked?

Great ornaments!!! I need to get started on some myself if I want to have any new ones for my tree and gifting this year, eh? :)

Wonderful progress and finishes! I need to get my butt moving on my ornaments too.

Oh, you've really been busy! I love them all--especially He's a Flake! Your tree will look just great this Christmas...

Well, this certainly explains where you've been - you've been a busy little stitcher! The Brittercup kitty is my favorite - so sweet!

I'm not usually a Brittercup Designs fan, but their ornament this year is lovely,they've used really pretty colours.
Your LHN ornaments are coming on a treat.
I'm looking forward to seeing your Halloween finish, I'm so into Halloween stitching at the moment!

Lovely finishes and WIP! I wish my mother was more into my stitching. She likes it but not enough for me to gift her with it very often.

I just finished Merry Skater and what a quick stitch these orni's are and fun also.
Be always in stitches.

Great job on the ornies! Are you going to finish them up soon or wait till you have a whole pile to do at once?
