Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

A batch of Christmas Ornaments Finished (also- March report for Smalls SAL)

I am one happy girl tonight - I have finished up the last of my March batch of Christmas Ornaments. I have spent close to the past 2 weeks stitching these designs, and the past 3 days making them up.

First, three Jeremiah Junction nutcrackers (from Nutcracker III booklet) for three sisters from a nut-cracker loving family.

Christmas ornaments for a pair of sisters (neighbour children).  The Santa alphabet is from LA's Alphabets Galore booklet.

Christmas tree Christmas ornaments (my design) for another two neighbour children (siblings):

Christmas tree ornaments (my design) for two children (first cousins) who will, I hope, pay me a Christmas visit:

An ornament (my design) for the granddaughter of an old friend:

And finally, a Christmas ornament (my design) for a nephew and his partner:

So, time to pack away the beads, and return to Christmas Dreams - I'm actually going to be stitching page 1 this time.  It will be my sixth page, and will finish row 1 of 11.

Gifted Gorgeousness Report for March

Here I am, late again for the Gifted Gorgeousness Report- and no valid excuses to offer.  Except a reluctance to put down my needle and move to the computer.  I really need to work on that one.

I have been quite busy this month.  I have now finished the fifth page of HAED Christmas Dreams (chart, fabric and most of the floss bought with birthday money) - just one more page to go and the top row is complete.  If you can't see what it is, look at it with your head to the side - I'm stitching it sideways.

I have also stitched five Christmas ornaments for children who will visit me this Christmas.  I'll make them up next week.  The first two use the Santa alphabet from LA's Alphabets Galore book, though I changed parts of the chart and most of the floss colours. These ornaments are for two sisters, neighbour children.

The next three are from Jeremiah Junctions Nutcracker III booklet, and are for sisters from a nutcracker-loving family.

 That;s all from me.  I will look forward to seeing all the lovely pics from others in the GG SAL.
