Ornaments on my tree.

I thought I would show you some of the things I have hanging on my tree that I have stitched over the years.

















I think the Robin one needs something around the edge, I may put a gold bead border around it.
The next 2 are angels, one is stitched and one is with beads.













I managed to get some stitching done at the weekend. Firstly I have completed the stitching on the roof for my cottage, tonight I will lace it around the plastic canvas and attach to the walls!! This looks the trickest bit as the roof has to overhang so attaching it will be awkward. I will hopefully show the end result on my next posting.

I also worked on Mom's rose and that is almost done, just a bit more around the leaves, again I'll show this next time.

What I did finally finish stitching is the individual placecards for Christmas dinner! I just have to back them on cards now. I want to do the table runner and napkins for next year..... but not just yet! I used a red varigated thread which I think looks nice.

This week I will work on what I feel like..... I think Lest We Forget may come out again and Dusky Dreams.... who knows.

This is the first time I have had time to stitch (was a teacher) and I have set myself a challenge of making an ornament a month for the new year as I now have the confidence, and thanks to people like you, the inspiration to do so.
