One More Christmas Finish...

I am so proud of myself  - not only did I manage to finish this year's ornament before Christmas, but - there are two of them! In addition to the Woodland Dreams (seen here) and in honor of the Year of the Sheep (according to Chinese Zodiac), I made this.

I stitched this design by Little House Needleworks several months ago. It was waiting in my stitching closet to be used for something - and, after a few hours of playing with backings, getting tangled in rickrack, and sewing - here it is... on the tree.

Next time I stitch one of Sheep's Virtue's squares, I will choose a brighter white - or a darker material. But, overall, I am happy with the result.... and with the message.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my dear friends! May the coming year be filled with - Hope! And may this hope become reality. 


  1. I love this one! Keep up the great work on your ornament stitching :)

    Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Thank you Carol! I hope you had a good Christmas, and Happy New Year to you!

  2. Hi
    Thank you for your comment on my blog.. love this Christmas ornie.. I stitched an ornie a month in 2012 and now I make a display of them on our stair case with greenery and lights. So I see them each year!
    I am loving this 'Blue China' design.. as you have a copy do you fancy a SAL with it.. we could give each other updates once a week or month?
    Happy Stitches

    1. Hi Chris,
      I would love to do a SAL with the China design, it's only that I have it someone in the depth of (one of my) cupboards... Might take me a few weeks to locate it. I will join in once I do; in the meantime, I will be watching your progress with excitement.
      Happy stitches to you too!


Thank you for leaving a word! I really appreciate your comments.
