Ornaments are in full swing now! All I want to do during the holiday time is stitch ornaments so I probably will be making a bunch between now and Christmas. I already have ideas for ornaments I am designing for next year. I have two to show you today. One is the 3rd in my Christmas Story series called A++++.
Remember when Ralphie was dreaming about the grade he was going to get on his theme and the teacher wrote A+++++++ on the chalk board and kept going onto the wall, etc. So funny! I stitched it on black linen with white floss to resemble a chalk board. I used a black and white check for the back and white rick rack for the trim. I am making a collection of these because I adore that movie. I would appreciate your feedback to this question: Should I list my Christmas Story ornaments in my etsy shop? Thanks so much in advance.
The next ornament I want to show is Lizzie Kate Love:
It is from one of the Just Cross Stitch ornament issues but I cannot remember which one. I do believe it is within the last few years because I haven’t dug that deep into my older issues yet. I am going to be sending this to a special friend for Christmas.
The last thing I wanted to show you is my great find at the antique store. I am addicted to scissor frogs now and I found this last week:
Imagine my excitement when I found not just a frog but a green one. It’s my first one and it had my name on it. Isn’t it fabulous!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
