Wow - after I completed my last project I was hoping I'd be able to do at least 1 Christmas Ornie - and I DID!! This will probably be the only other stitching I get done in 2008 but I'm happy with that.
My local stitching store (Cross My Heart) is doing a monthly Christmas Ornament from the 2008 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament magazine. I decided to join back in October knowing that I'd be able to buy the monthly ones but not knowing if I would be able to get to them this year.
This is called Be Merry (Designed by Monique Keylor of My Mark). I can't leave things alone and instead of straight stitching I beaded the large snowflake in the upper right corner. I also added flat snowflakes to the tree and snowflake area in the lower left corner. I also stitched this in 14ct Aida instead of the 28 Cashel linen it recommended. Now my only decision is to make it into an ornie or put it into a frame.
Hope everyone has a blessed Christmas!!
