Christmas Stitchin'

I've been trying to work in ornament stitching here and there. You know, there's only 48 days til Christmas. Gasp!

fabric: 32ct oyster linen

fiber: Needle Necessities #1531

fabric: 28ct "staci dyed" linen

fibers: DMC

And I pulled out some ornies I stitched (but never finished) last year. Or maybe the year before. But anyways, they're ironed and sitting in a pile waiting for a marathon finishing session :)


Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little bit of cyberspace. And thanks for all of your super sweet comments on my recent finishes...they're definately the icing on the cake!!!

OK, Staci, I have to inquire about the scissors that is pictured with the tree ornie. It looks like a DMC peacock scissors with green handles, however there is some sort of writing on the blade which I can't make out.
