Last Ones… Almost

Honest, these are the last ornaments finishes for the year… almost. I have one left, but I need to get to the craft store for a “trunk” and a pot for my potted tree, the idea for which was lifted from Karen V. Thanks Karen!

The first two you will recognize as the Baby’s 1st Christmas Ornaments that I stitched up for coworkers, designed by Victoria Sampler. Unfortunately, the assembly process went awry on Evelyn’s ornament so that the front and back are not perfectly aligned, as evidenced by the tassel looking askew on the backside. 🙁 Oh well, they can’t all be perfect! 😆

Next, we have Santa’s Trimming for my dad in Florida, designed by Mosey ‘n Me, from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue:

And finally, one I’m actually keeping for ME! This one is the Merry Christmas Bellpull ornament, designed by the Sweetheart Tree, also from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue:

You can’t see from the picture because it’s a bit dark, but the cording is made out of the remnants of the Weeks Dye Works colors used in the design – Bordeaux and Cypress. I even splurged for the brass bellpull hardware, though it was only $7 from Yarn Tree.

Now, will all of those done, I can start focusing on the little things… like decorating my house, writing up Christmas cards, wrapping gifts, baking cookies, planning the holiday meal and getting ready for company! 😉

    Every time I look through the 2004 JCS Orn. issue I want to stitch that little bell pull!! Great job, as usual, on everything – even the one that’s a little askew. Once it’s on the tree, no one will ever notice – and probably wouldn’t anyway 🙂

    Crikey, I had to look real HARD to find what you were talking about when you said they weren’t lined up properly … I don’t think anyone will notice! All your latest ornament finishes look fantastic – I love the shape of the Mosey ‘n Me one – really sets it off well. And of course I adore the Sweetheart Tree banner … your stitching of that one sent me scuttling off to find a 2004 issue so I could stitch it myself … and it looks absolutely stunning on that bellpull hardware – just glorious! Glad you managed to keep at least ONE ornament for yourself 😉

    Wow Jenna, they are gorgeous – especially that bellpull! Wow! Love the cording too! 😀

    Don’t worry on the minor trouble on Evelyn’s ornament – if you hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have noticed it! Honest! 🙂

    Wow! Those are all great! And I couldn’t find the mistake either, so it’s only something that you will notice. You did a fantastic job on all those. I love the Mosey n Me Santa. The beads are cute, although at first I thought he had a jump rope in hand. LOL You do a great job finishing things, very impressive. 😀

    Wow! More beautiful ornaments! I love the unique shape of the Santa I’ll have to keep in mind that not everything has to be square.
