A Few Finishes Finally!

Last night I completed a couple things so I finally have things to

This is "A Very Merry Christmas" by JBW designs and I still have to attach the red heart for the tree topper, but am debating on putting a small gold star instead; so it will sit for a short time while I decide which I would rather use. Part of the "dilemma" for me is that I always use either a star or Angel to top my trees

These next two photos are of an ornament for an exchange. The front design is by Gazette94 (a freebie design which I just love) I used a silver metallic for the scroll backstitching and accented with red glass seed beads.

For the back of this ornament I made my own design out of the idea of the scroll backstitching, a border I took from another design and charted the wording on graph paper. I do like the way it came out though very much.

I will be starting on Gingerbread Trio by Little House Needleworks this week as we travel to Chicago for our son's Pass and Review (graduation) from navy Basic Training. We are very proud of him as well as all our kids. Samuel is the third of sons to follow their dad's footsteps in the Navy. However that being said, I come from a long line of service members myself...including my own service (Air National Guard).


  1. Beautiful finishes as well as the rose above! You've been busy! :)

  2. Lovely exchange and stitching! Love those freebies from Gazette94!
