Since we are approaching the holiday season, I thought it would be a good idea to stitch some of the Christmas cross-stitch kits I have. I am not sure of how many I actually have. That would require a trip to my storage area. I have enough at home to keep me busy, so that will have to wait. But here are the four I have done over the past month.
I really like poinsettas, so this ornament was a must have for me when I saw it at JoAnn’s a few weeks ago. Mom was looking for fabric to make a birthday present for her friend and I happened to see a small holiday craft section.
I also could not resist the teddy bear, though it proved to be more challenging than I had anticipated. That little ornament has five different shades of gold, three shades of green, and three shades of red. I was amazed.
The deer is my favorite of the ornaments I have stitched. I really like how it turned out. The only thing I did not like about the stitching was the French knot snowflakes. They turned out well, though, so I cannot complain too much.
The little bird ornament is part of a set of holiday ornaments. I am thinking about going back to JoAnn’s to see if I can find the rest of them. There is a lamp post, a Santa, and a snowman that I know of. We shall see.
I have started a set of six ornaments that will likely keep me busy, though, so I may not have time to think about stitching more. I am content with what I have at the moment. They turned out well.
