A couple of very small ornaments...

In the past couple of weeks, I have managed to stitch some tiny ornaments... the first two that are totally finished are ready to share are... (I love to make really tiny ornaments sometimes, as I have so many and still want to keep adding to my tree... so I make little guys that can get tucked in anywhere, like these two can)...


Joy Ambigram Ornament
The Flower Thread Company
The Gift of Stitching Magazine, November 2011
32 ct Opalescent White Belfast Linen, Victorian Motto Sampler Thread, DMC Floss

I also stitched this one up a bit ago.... I put the very last stitch in the finishing just as our power went out during the late October freak snowstorm that hit the East Coast of the US.... it was over four days before we got power back, and longer than that before I remembered to go peek and see how it came it! Here it is...

Joy to the World Ornament
Helga Mandl in Carolling Cards
32 ct R&R Reproductions Creek Bed Brown linen, Crescent Colours Floss
Stitched one over one


Have missed so many of my blogging/stitching friends. Last night I shocked my tinnitus (it is only in my left ear) using ear buds and some sound program apps on my iPad... having a very quiet day today, so I am hoping I am on to something... will do more of that shock therapy tonight - no worries, I don't blast it, I am just trying to habituate my brain to the chronic hissing that is now part of my life...)

Oh, we just got our tree and Mike is stringing the lights. Maybe I will decorate it tomorrow and will have a photo to share soon.... anyone else getting ready to decorate a post a photo of their tree???

Both ornaments are adorable, Carol!

I can't wait to see your tree up! I'm not planning to put mine up until around the 10th of December - I'm very busy with work at the moment, so I've been bringing it home with me, and so have decided to wait until later to spend the time decorating (it usually takes me a full weekend!)

Have a great weekend!

Nice job on your three ornaments...I may nickname you "the ornament lady"
I too have tinnitus in my left ear, have had it for about 6-8 years. Believe it or not you get use to it...eventually!

I love your tiny ornaments! Just perfect to tuck into the boughs.
Our tree usually goes up around my son's birthday on the fifteenth. Quite often it's a real tree and it stays up until Epiphany so I don't like to put it up too early.
I can't wait though!
