Toccata 1 update and my ornaments

I’m continuing to make a lot of progress on Toccata 1!

I have about 13 more motifs until I can’t do more without my thread order. One motif is all Queen stitch so that will take a whole stitching session but otherwise I’ve been doing about 5 motifs a day so I should arrive at a temporary stopping point this week.

I took down my Christmas tree this weekend. I decided to photograph all my stitched ornaments together.

Wow it’s a lot! I didn’t count them but it is a lot. Most I made with about 25% made by my Mom and Grandma. There is one made by a friend and the big rainbow angel I rescued off eBay as an unfinished stitch which I turned it into an ornament. Anyway I thought you’d like to see them before they are put away! Next year I’ll try to get a picture of them on the tree!

I hope you have a great week with lots of stitching time!

  1. Definitely a lot of Christmas ornies! Your house must seem so bare without them now.
    You’re still stitching up a storm on Tocatta… a January finish perhaps? 🙂

    1. I hope I’ll have an “almost” finish this week but I won’t have the rest of the threads until next month at the earliest! So let’s say February!

  2. Wonderful work on Toccata.
    I love the photo of all your Ornaments together. You have made some beautiful pieces over the years. Nice to have ones made by your Mum and Grandma too,

  3. What a fun bunch of ornaments. Thanks for sharing. Great progress on your toccata. Hope the threads arrive quickly.

    1. Thank you! The threads are coming from a shop with another order which is back ordered so I will have to wait patiently! Hopefully next month!

  4. Hi Mary! It is so good to be back in blogland again. I have missed all of my blogging friends. Your newest stitch is beautiful. And WOW look at all of those ornaments…each and every one is wonderful. Have a great week. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  5. Wow you are really moving along on that piece and it looks great. I love all of your ornaments! Do you stitch them for your children or just for the household?

    1. Thank you! Yes, lots of them are for the kids-there are 5 so that accounts for quite a few! And then probably half are just mine that my Grandma and Mom made for me, or I made because I like them!
