Me, Myself and I ornaments....

JBW Designs "Starry,Starry Night,Little By Little "Christmas Joy", HIH "Woodland Noel"
1998 JCS Ornament issue

Here is this month's installment for my "exchange". With summer setting in "some" of us were a little "lazy" in our stitching but I won't call any names. Let's just say I expect more from myself next month! I am missing the charm for the Woodland Noel and will have to look for something suitable. The design called for a Heart in Hand charm but I think I will look for a rustic heart.

Thanks so much for visitng my blog and all of your great comments on my last posts. I do enjoy reading them and feel like I am "visiting" with friends!

We are on our way tonight to the Hampton Co. Watermelon Festival, SC oldest continuing. Hope to have some cold, juicy melon! Stay cool and happy stitching....

  2. What a coincidence! I was just looking through my older JCS ornament magazines last night and those were some of the exact ones I want to stitch, along w/a bunch of others!! LOL
    You are way ahead of me! :))

  7. Great ornaments ... I really like the HIH one ... terrific finishing on all of them. Reminds me I need to get cracking on my Bride's Tree SAL ornaments: I still need to assemble the May ornament and stitch the June one ... and there aren't all that many days left in the month!

  23. All 3 ornaments look great! If that's lazy, I don't know what I would be because my ornaments don't usually even make it to finished form! lol I know practice makes perfect, but my less than perfect finishing skills make me put it off.
