December is here!!

Greetings all! Can you believe that it is December already? Christmas is right around the corner! I have alot to do to get ready for it how about you? We've only got a little shopping done. I had planned on putting up my kitchen Christmas tree today but the lights that I was going to use on it stopped working. They were working a couple of days ago when I tested them. I won't be doing the tree today. It will have to wait until tomorrow.Rats! I thought I needed a little something Christmasy for the blog. I scrounged around and found some Christmas songs that I hope you'll like while reading.If not, just turn off the sound. If you like it, turn it up! :o)
I had joined 3 Christmas ornament exchanges and thought I would share some photos on those that I have sent out that have already recieved them.
I stitched one for Leeanne for The Ties That Bind exchange. That lucky duck is going to get two with this exchange! She already had a partner and then when one dropped out, she graciously offered to be my partner so I would have one. Bless her dear heart! The one I stitched for her is Winter Frost from Patricia Ann Designs found in last year's JCS Ornament Issue. I didn't realize until after I had stitched it that I had just the perfect fabric for the back. I should have taken a picture of that. It is a light purplish blue with silver snowflakes and stars.

Here's a little closer shot.

Yesterday I posted a pic of the ornament that Sadie stitched for me. Here is the one that I stitched for her. I stitched Let It Snow from CCN found in that same issue. I modified the pattern to make it into a stocking ornament. I will have to stitch me one too but it will wait until next year.

A wee bit closer peek.

So what are the rest of you working on? Are you making ornaments, pillows, gift boxes, or other things? I'd love to hear from you . Hope you all are having fun with all that the season brings. Well ,with the exception of traffic and searching for a parking space! That's never fun! LOL!

'til next time,

happy stitching,



  1. Your little snowman stocking is so cute, Sharlotte--very creative finish :)

  2. Beautiful ornaments, Sharlotte! I love the snowman stocking!

  3. Such darling ornies! I love the little snowman as well. What am I doing? Blankets, slippers, hats, aprons, and doll clothes! All for Christmas gifts, of course!
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. The snowman is really cute. But that snowflake if gorgeous! It looks like it's mostly beads.

  5. There are a lot of beads on the ornament along with cross stitches and back stitching.The stitching part goes really quick.The beads were slower.

  6. That snowman stocking is DARLING Sharlotte! Absolutely Darling :)

  7. They're both adorable - great stitching and finishing!

  8. What a cute stocking finish! I'm cleaning and being introspective. Maybe I'll finish up this mill hill ornie I've been stitching, too.

  9. Cute ornament finishes. Love the stocking...great adaptation of the pattern.

  10. I absolutly LOVE my stocking ornament! Thank you Sharlotte x

  11. Beautiful stitches there. The stocking is wonderful!
    I'm trying not to stitch any ornaments this year. I needed a break. So, I'm making little gift bags instead!
