Ornaments stitched

Hello my friends.
 Here are two ornaments I have finished.

From the 2011 JCS Christmas Ornament magazine.
Christmas Tree Cat,
by Briittercup Designs.
For the trim it`s Moda Vera Yoyo yarn.
Kath has this now.:)

Merry Christmas Drum.
By Wendy Peatross.
JCS Christmas Ornaments 2018 issue.

Once I had stitched design I counted 6 threads from the bottom 
and back stitched over 2 in green across. At the top I counted 10 threads
back stitching again. This helped with the button hole stitch I used to
join the top and bottom pieces which are plastic circles covered with wool felt.
The top circle has a hole in it so the ribbon could come through for hanging.
The drum sticks are burnt match sticks,washed,with beads attached with sticky glue.
I am so pleased with this.
Well back on with my day, part of which is carrying on wallpapering.
Still haven`t found the first lot so with a few dollars off we paid $600 for more!
Happy Stitching, 


  1. I love both ornaments but my favourite is the drum. The matchsticks is a brilliant idea. Have a great Christmas and happy stitching for 2019. :)

  2. Both ornaments are lovely Clare .. I treasure the Santa one you stitched and sent to me a few years ago in a swap.

    Wishing you a Happy Christmas and Happy stitching in 2019.
