My Family's 2016 Ornaments

I know, not this month's theme, but I wanted to share with you my family's 2016 ornaments.  (I either make or buy ornaments each year for all 4 of our kids and one for DH and I to share.  However many of us are together before Christmas have an "unveiling" before putting them on the tree the ornaments' first year.)  This year I chose Santas on sleds.  Both the designs and the sleds are by Foxwood Crossings and widely available in both online and brick and mortar needlework shops.

(I'm not sure why the pic is upside down.  It's rightside up on my computer.)

Serendipitous Jo's November Ornie - Tree

Throughout this year I have been stitching the Christmas Cubes by The Primitive Hare.  Each cube fitted one of the themes perfectly although I did have to stitch them out of order.

With no further ado, let's have a drum roll for the final Cube - H

stitched on 35 count Country Mocha from Willow Fabrics

Here they all are together:

And here are the four that I have finish-finished into cubes:

H will be joining them this week

My Christmas tree while it is still in the woods

Hello stitch friends!

This month I chose First Snow which is a freebie from The Drawn Thread.  I had a different ornament chosen but once I spotted this one I changed my own mind.

I am still not sure how I will finish it.  I am thinking it would make a sweet standing cube to go in my Christmas village.  What do you all think?

Happy Stitching!

Oh Christmas Tree....

Hi Jolly Elves, 

Not long now until Christmas (I am not even going to frighten you by saying how soon - lol!).

So luckily, I have this gorgeous PS Christmas Tree stitched up this month, all ready to be turned into an ornie.  Now, Prairie Schooler designs do not usually use beads but I could not resist blinging up this design from Book #150, "December".

hugs, Kaye
