All Kinds of Christmas Ornaments

I have a little gathering of Christmas Ornaments to share today. I have been feeling a bit better the past couple of weeks, and have been on a little mission to stitch ornaments... including a few that have been on my "to do" list for quite a while now..

First though, I wanted to share this lovely ornament that arrived in the mail today from Katrina.

I am not at all familiar with this design, but I do love it. And as always, I just adore Katrina's finishing techniques! Thank you so much Katrina - you are such a dear friend! I will cherish this one always.

Next... a few I recently finished. I apologize straight out for some of the photos. It is a warm but overcast/rainy late afternoon here, and my tree pics are not so great...

The ornaments are wonderful. I really like the Log Cabin Needleworks Noel. I googled it but nothing comes up. Do you know if this is a company that has gone out of business?

Lynn said...

What beautiful ornaments, both received and made! I absolutely love the Noel one. Your tree looks gorgeous! It's my hope to one day have enough ornaments stitched to decorate our tree like this.
If you check out the pic of our tree on my blog you'll see that Clarisse planted herself under it the second we finished decorating.
