Me,Myself & I ornaments....

Little by Little "Sleigh Bird"--'03 JCS Ornaments
SB "Bethehem Slept"--'05 JCS Ornaments
Primitve Needle "Penny Angel"--'09 JCS Ornaments

It's that time again!  I really like this month's installment, but I have to say the "Penny Angel" has to be my favorite so far.  I love
face jugs and this reminds me of one.

Christmas in July.....

So here is a pic of all 21 I have stitched so far......looks like I will need a bigger tree or I need to stitch some smaller ornaments!

Lastly.....


I found this stitched goodie while reorganizing my craft room.  I stitched it a few years ago and it all centered around the button and scrap red aida I had.  The "button" is actually a miniture clay ornament I had bought at Walmart (acutally got 6 in the pack) and I thought it was too cute.  I just copied the saying from a LK design and voila a cute mini pillow.

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments on the photo album finish.  I did get a few emails about the finishing and believe me it was easy.  I found some great tutorials on the web with pictures (I am a visual learner) so give it a try.

If you have made it this far....thanks for visiting and happy stitching!
