Christmas Stitching

the best part of this time of year is stitching little ornaments for all the little ones i know.
this year i have four boys to stitch for, all under 3 years old and one little girl.

this is a simple one i stitched for my nieces oldest boy who is 2
easy his name, a red bird and beads.

i found it  hard to put anything inside this little glass ornament. paper wouldn't lay right with the linen and i decided to add some pop beads that belong to my grandmother. plus the little gingerbread man!

and another one for little Waylon some beads and a simple snowflake.

this one i stitched for my niece who loves cats

 oh yea i got this design out of the 2011 Christmas Ornament Magazine by Just Cross Stitch. this one was designed by Michelle M. Lash and i finished it just like she said with the cording and tassels sewn around the edge. fun and simple again.
i love the Christmas Just Cross Stitch Magazines i save them and turn to them year after year.
enjoy your stitching at this wonderful time of year.
