This year for my mom I made:

Fabric: 32 ct. ???
Fibre's: DMC as charted
Embellishments: pompoms, bell, twisted cord, ribbon

I already have a few to choose from to stitch her for next Christmas. While she was looking through my JCS ornament issues she pointed out a lot she likes, all with a gajillion colours :) like charts by Serendipity Designs or The Vermillion Stitchery. Not something you start the month before Christmas.
