Hand Stitched Ornaments

Our tree is bedecked with mostly hand made ornaments and many of them stitched.  Techniques include cross stitch, needlepoint, beading, and punch needle.  A lifetme collection from friends and relatives along with many I stitched myself.  I enjoy them so much!  Here's a sample of some of my favorites.

I also finished the stockings for the mantle. They're made with fabric from a Moda French General layer cake.  I am absolutely in love with all these fabrics and I use them for all sorts of finishing work.

I guess I'm ready for Christmas now.  The packages are sent, presents wrapped, and stockings hung by the chimney with care.

Hope you all are ready for an enjoyable holiday!
