I realized suddenly this month that I don’t think I’ve stitched any Christmas ornaments this year! Well, I had to change that state of affairs! A while ago I had kitted an ornament from Just Cross Stitch Magazine 2001. It is called Gemstone Heart by Hermanson Hardanger. Since it was ready to go, I picked it up. Except for the beads, I got it done in 3 sessions. I accidentally changed the color of those big Rhodes squares-they should be the cream color. But I do like them sparkly so I left them. So fancy! This will be the dreaded heart finish. I will do my best to have it ready for the tree this year anyway, if I can get the beads. I need copper color beads and I do not have anything that fits the bill.
For December I plan to keep working on Deerfield, a very enjoyable stitch.
I’m also going to work on Cozy Into Winter by Jeannette Douglas. I have a small start on it:
Maybe I’ll do a Mill Hill ornament too for my small as I haven’t done one of those this year yet either! Shame on me!
I’ll fill in any gaps with BBD’s Strawberry Garden. I don’t plan to hustle to finish it but it would be nice to have it close enough to be the first finish of 2021. That would get the new year off to an auspicious start, just what we need right?
