Christmas Ornament Swap...

SWAP for Joan. I had a hard time with this one. I started 3 different ornaments and this one won:


Designer: Debbie Draper
Design: taken from The Gift Of Stitching on-line Magazine November 2007
Stitched on: 35 ct. Weeks Dye Works Parchment
Fiber: DMC 815

Finished as an ornament


Sorry for the two posts in one day...but I'm just trying to keep up with my finishes before the big end of the year. So that I have a clean slate, fresh start and new lease on stitching!
Until next time....you know the rest!

  17. The swap ornament for Joan turned out great. I love the bells and bows, sets it off just perfectly.
    I like your pillows from your earlier post too.
    I want to thnk you for being such an encouraging factor in my getting off my arse and getting my stitching stuff organized so I can start stitching again. I look at all you do, plus taking care of four adorable children and a job and of course your hubby and I think what the heck am I sniffling about that I have no time. So today, I am going through my room and getting my projects of many different types together, so that I can start in on all my things again.
    Thank you!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your and your lovely family.
