Started my Christmas Ornament stitching...

OK, it is autumn in the western hemisphere, so I have started my non-exchange Christmas Ornament stitching... starting with two from the JCS Christmas Ornament Preview Issue, of course..

The First Day Ornament
Plum Street Samplers
JCS Christmas Ornament Preview Issue, July/August 2011
Lakeside Linens 40 ct Basketweave Linen
CC Belle Soie Cranberry Silk and Valdani Floss in Muddy Monet

Baa Baa Birdie
Miss Crescent's Crowne Designs
JCS Christmas Ornament Preview Issue, July/August 2011
Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct Howling at the Moon lugana (stitched one over one)
Crescent Colours Floss

Sooo... OK.... whoever put the pin in the left side of the head of some voodoo doll of me, please, I beg you.... please remove it! It had to have been inserted around March 15, 2011. Since then, the left side of my head has been screaming and hissing. Yep, there are days with hints of relief... the chiropractor provides most of that. But honestly, I think he is just trying to work around that pin that the voodoo witch put in the doll :-( If I must make amends with someone to have it removed, please let me know - before I start to lose hearing in my left ear, pleaaaase....

Currently Stitching: Really don't know - other than Christmas Ornaments...

Beautiful ornaments Carol, with wonderful finishing touches as usual. I just started the change-over from fall to Christmas stitching this weekend as well. If the fall stuff isn't done by now, it can wait for next year.

I'm so sorry to hear things are all that great. I really thought you were getting much more relief than you have been. I hope things improve soon.
Your ornament finishes are beautiful. I really like that PSS design.
I made the changeover this week and pulled out my Christmas designs to get started.
