Merry Christmas

Here are two different finishes of the same freebie design by Threadwork Primitives.  I've seen this design done on a lot of blogs.  It's a quick stitch and pretty too!  I stitched it for the HoE exchange group.

Fabric:  36 ct. Edinburgh linen
Fibre's:  WDW Holly and Garnet
Finished as a stitching tin, embellished with Holly fabric, a magnet and velvet ribbon

The past few years we've gone to an ornament exchange party at friends.  It's a great way to kick off the Christmas season.  Everyone bring's a wrapped ornament, pick a number and then the fun starts.  #1 is the worst number to get.  If the ornament you pick is awesome #2 can steal it, and so on.  It's the best to get the last number as you get the pick of the crop!  So I chose to stitch an ornament this year.

I have more finishes to post, but I'll save them for another post in a couple days.  Have a great weekend!

I like how the design looks on both linen colours. I might have to look this freebie up!

Sounds like a fun way to distribute the ornaments. Hope you get that very last number! Your tin and ornament are both so well done :)

I really like those - especially the stitching tin! I've already nabbed the pattern (thanks for the link :D) - I'm hoping that next year I'll be able to do better at doing an ornament a month, if my fingers will co-operate!

I love your version of Nan's "Merry Christmas"! The altoid tin is cute too. Great for storing needles. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
