Christmas Ornament

I finally finished my little Christmas ornament for HoE. We had a teacher's meeting on Friday and I worked on it furiously during the meeting. It really helps me concentrate on what is being taught. Then we had a fall break today so I was able to finish my exchange and get it in the mail.

I used a pattern from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue. It is a HeartStrings/The Artist's Collection. I stitched it on fabric from my stash and used the threads that were suggested. I made it into a little pillow ornament with gold beads all around and then I made a little hanger with beads that I had. The fabric on the back is from our little quilt shop located a few miles from Okmulgee.

The little bowls that are in my photos are made by my husband. I use them to hold the beads for my projects. They are perfect.

Our weather has been grand and I have flowers to plant so I had better get busy. Hope you days are filled with goodness and joy. Peace and blessings to all.
