Looking Forward...

Well Christmas as very quiet here as we had lots of snow and the roads weren't driveable.  Everyone loved their presents.  We are now looking forward to 2011.  I have been stitching ornaments for the ornament exchange next October at the Pals Fall Fling.  I don't usually stitch any, but I have a head start this year and have one completed and two that are almost done too.
This is Lizzie Kate's design from JCS Ornament issue 2002.  I didn't have the silver heart charm, so I used a little bell button that I found in my stash, I think it turned out pretty cute.

Will add photos of the other two when they are finished.  I've had really good fun stitching these ornaments this year.  I used Victorian Motto sampler threads and fabric from Lakeside Linen, I won a prize at the Cross Stitch Pals Fall Fling, that consisted of ornament cuts of linen and a huge selection of threads in greens, reds and golds from the Victorian Motto.

Hope everyone has a good 2011.


  1. I can't wait to see your other ornaments. I'm so proud of you getting a head start for next October. You may just beat us all. Congratulations on your finish!

  2. Hmmm - since you are stitching ornaments for the 2011 Fling - can we assume you'll be there? Love the ornament - you've motivated me to get started on mine!
