More Jan Ornies

I was going to post these as my Feb ornies, but why wait?
I'm still feeling super-inspired to stitch and finish Christmas ornaments :)
The amount of pleasure and satisfaction I feel is absurdly disproportional to the size of the finished piece, lol.


This was a real pleasure to stitch.
Thank you so much Tanya for such a sweet pattern!



Christmas Eve Flight
freebie by The Sampler Girl found here
fabric:  28ct "staci-dyed" evenweave
fibers:  Crescent Colours; Wild Berries, Roasted Chestnut and Milady's Teal


And another oldie-from-the-drawer...



Thanks for dropping by.
Happy Tuesday and Happy Stitching!

Hi Staci,

How are you today?? As I type this it is Friday night and the weekend
has begun. Always reason to
celebrate, don't you think??

Love your newest Christmas ornament
finishes as featured so beautifully
here. Love the blue ribbon and the
rusty bells that trim Christmas Eve
and the "To Ewe" ornament is so
darn cute I could scream! Lol!!
Sorry ... Fridays tend to make me
giddy.

And if you feel inspired to
continue stitching and finishing
Christmas ornaments then you
should just go ahead and do so.
After all Christmas is just eleven
months away ... and counting.

Have a fabulous weekend Staci!

Cheers!

Mary said...

Shirley said...

Shirley
