"Sweet Christmas"

This ornament is from the 2005 Ornament Issue of Just Cross-Stitch magazine.  Rather than use plain DMC as charted, I used Needle Necessities 1531 (red), Weeks Dye Works Holly, and white DMC.  The two buttons are from Just Another Button Company.  The fabric is from a Lakeside Linens hand-dyed linen grab bag.  This was a quick stitch on October 13th, 2005.



"Reach for the Stars"
I stitched this in just over four hours. It is stitched on 30-count Murano with The Thread Gatherer "Silk 'N Colors" silk floss. The twisted cording hanger is made from additional silks. It was stitched and finished into a ornament / fob with a light sage fabric which coordinates nicely. 

 



"POP!"
This took about three hours. It is stitched on hand-dyed Lakeside Linens. The threads are DMC and Kreinik metallic. It was stitched and finished by me into a ornament / fob with blue star print fabric which coordinates nicely.
