Day Eight...

~ Greetings Dear Friends ~
and a warm welcome to
Day Eight
of the
25 Days of Christmas with The Twisted Stitcher
In honor of it being Sunday, a day of rest, I'm just going to share with you a single, simple ornament.
May I present, one of the Winter Wonderland series from Country Cottage Needleworks:
This was a Thread Pack collaboration series with Crescent Colours; now Classic Colorworks from a few years ago. I had planned on doing them all as one design, but...
changed my mind. Here is one I finished a few weeks ago. And I plan on doing all the others as ornaments too.
In this photo you can see ornaments from a lot of my stitching friends :)
Edgar of Blacksheep Bit 'o the Web did the Santa riding the reindeer
Teresa of At Willow Tree Pond did the Blue Faith and Hope ornament
Rachel V did the red and white stocking
Marie of Creative Stitches did the Vonna name tree
So many friends have gifted me over the years with ornaments, and I truly remember where each one came from, because I'm sure you can already tell...I LOVE CHRISTMAS!! and CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS! :)
And with that folks...
that is Day Eight!
But before I go...
may I give a HEARTY congratulations to:
Pat Matejcek
She is the winner of the Burlap Pillows!!
and you never know what else is coming up in the next 17 days! So all hope is not lost!
Until Tomorrow....
