Some More Ornaments….

Hello Everyone,

A few more ornaments today. I have these 2 reindeer ornaments by JBW Designs:


There is a few more of these cute little reindeer in the book that I want to do. Love these!

Next is the 2014 Present Reindeer freebie by Sharon (AKA It’s Daffycat)


This is my 3rd one of these and I just love these little guys. Sharon still has them all available on her blog. Just send her an email and tell her which ones you want. They are so fun to stitch.

My last ornament is the Christmas contest that Niky’s Creations is doing:


LOVE this design! I was so excited to stitch the design that I forgot what I could actually win if my name is drawn. But that is OK. I loved stitching this design anyway and then I don’t get my hopes up when my name isn’t drawn. I have a sweet new ornament when the contest is over anyhow.


That’s all for today. I am still stitching a few more ornaments so I’ll post those when they are finished.

Have a great rest of your week!


Are you Naughty or Nice?

Just wanted to share my new kit that I listed in my etsy shop. Naughty/ Nice ornament. Kit includes patterns and threads. Use the fabric of your choice and have fun with it. You can stitch as one ornament or stitch as separate ornaments. I stitched it as one ornament and I flip it when I need too.

Let your children and fur children know when they are being naughty or nice this holiday season. You could also use it for yourself. Are you being naughty or nice?

Have a great weekend everyone!


Some Christmas Designs

Hello All.

Just a few things I want to share that I just listed in my Etsy shop. If you wish to take a look go to

Some Christmas stitching:


Fancy Christmas Tree cross stitch E-pattern,

I added felt to the back to make it a flat ornament.

Also, Joy to All which is an ornament available as a kit.


The kit includes pattern, skein of DMC 815, and finishing instructions. You use the fabric of your choice. The finishing instructions are just a guide if you choose to finish it the way I did but by all means please finish any way you like.

Hope you enjoy these Christmas stitches!

Switching gears for a moment- Happy Halloween Everyone! May you get more treats than tricks!!!


Fall Finishes and Fall Fun

Hello all,

I have 2 fall finishes to share-Woo Hoo!!!

First is Brew Ha Ha by Plum Street Sampler:


I absolutely love this design. It was a freebie on Paulette’s blog a month or so ago so be sure to check out her blog to see if it is still available. This design was so fun to stitch.

I also finished this sweet little fall tree by Summer House Stitcheworks:


My good friend, Erika sent me this pattern after she was finished with it. So sweet! This design is right up my alley because I loveĀ  fall leaves and I love to watch the leaves change.

This is probably it for my fall stitching. Time seems to be flying by and I have so many ornaments I want to stitch.

I also wanted to share some fall fun. It was a beautiful day here on Columbus Day so my SIL, Madison, and I went to Long Acre Farms to go thru the huge corn maze. It was so fun and a gorgeous day to be outside. We don;t have too many of those left. Here are a few pictures of the corn maze:



You could seriously get lost. Luckily, there is people there to help you. You carry a flag on a pole so if you are having trouble you lift it and wave.They have puzzles to give you clues on how to get out. We made it in about 1 1/2 hrs. Fun Day!

Have a great rest of your week!


Thread Keeps

Hello All,

I just wanted to share these fun tombstone thread keeps that I made:


A friend cut the wood for me and I took over from there. I painted, sanded and polished. They measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and have a ring at the top for your threads. I love how they turned out but I wonder if I should add a year on them. What do you think? I would love to hear your feedback.

Have a great day everyone!


Yay! Ornaments!


As the title states Yay! Ornaments! I love ornaments. They are fun to stitch, fun to finish, and I can’t wait to put themĀ  on my tree.

First is Xmas Sheep by Niky’s Creations:


This ornament is in the JCS Preview issue. Although, it is finished as a Christmas tag, I finished as instructed and made it as an ornament. Super easy finish!

The next ornament is also from the JCS Preview called Believe by Samplers Not Forgotten:


Now, I have to say I did make a mistake somewhere so instead of taking it all out, I decided to do a portion of the ornament and Viola! Can’t tell where I made the mistake can you! I finished this as a flat pillow ornament. I do like how it turned out.

This next ornament is SNOW by I Stitch:


I stitched this on blue linen and also finished this as a pillow ornament. I used small blue rick rack trim which matches perfectly. I like how it is so little and cute.

These last 2 ornaments are 2 of my new designs which I just listed the patterns for in my etsy shop.

Oh Christmas Tree:


and Jingle:


There is a little more stitching besides just Jingle. I didn’t realize it didn’t come out in the picture. To check them out go to Thank You!

I finished both of these as pillow ornaments. I added 2 rusty jingle bells to Jingle at the top to finish it off. I can’t wait to hang these on my tree. I hope you enjoy stitching them as much as I did.

Have a great weekend everyone and I will be back with some more ornaments very soon.
