O Christmas Tree Finished Ornie

I finished O Christmas Tree into an actual ornament!

Here is the front:


And here is the back!


I used Vonna’s instructions on flat fold ornaments and it was super easy!

But I did omit the cording around the edge.  I didn’t want to make my own since I can’t find a mini-cording thingy and the cording at the store didn’t match.  But I think it turned out fine without it!

It has taken a while to post this, but I did actually finish this before Christmas as it was a gift for a co-worker.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get around to finishing MY ornament of this same pattern, so it is still laying there all sad and unfinished.  But I will get it done and ready to hang for Christmas 2016!





November YOTA

Sadly, I haven’t touched my YOTA project in a while.


Two months to be exact.  It remains the same as I left it in September.

I feel guilty for not stitching on it but I just have no motivation to pull it out and work on it.  Maybe if I leave it alone for a little while longer, I can come back to it some time next year with renewed ambition.  But for now, I think I have given up on it and it will remain a WIP.



I stitched up this cute little snowflake last week.  I still have a few beads to add to the middle and the outside points, but that shouldn’t take too long.


This was stitched on 28-count blue evenweave I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I used one strand of Kreinik blending filament with one strand of DMC floss so it sparkles!  I also have some very cute white and silver backing fabric picked out.




O Christmas Tree (the 2nd)

This is such a cute and easy pattern that I thought I should make another.  Here is the one I finished in March of this year.


I have a few people on my Christmas list that I want to gift ornaments to, so I thought this would make an excellent choice as it stitches up so quick.

I used a different color ground fabric for this one.  It is 28-count Natural evenweave.  This is what I have so far.


I hope to be done with this one this weekend!  And then I might try to stitch one more before Christmas!  As the time nears to actually “finish” these stitched pieces into ornaments, I am getting super nervous.  I want to use  The Twister Stitcher’s  flat ornament directions.  I’m sure I can manage it, but it just scares me that I might screw it up and then I have ruined my stitched piece.

October YOTA

Sadly, no progress has been made on The Legend Of The Dogwood Tree.


This is where I left it last month and this is where it remians today.

I have been stitching, just not on this.  I

 have some Christmas things I have been concentrating on and that means this project has fallen by the wayside.

I would say that maybe next month would be better, but who am I kidding – the closer Christmas gets the less I will be working on anything.

Loose Feathers Update

It has been a very long while since my last update on this project.  I started this project in March and have not paid much attention to it in the last several months.  I get in a few stitches here and there.

This was my progress as of March 14th.


And this is where I’m at today.


See, not much to talk about.

I’m not sure why I haven’t stitched on this project more.  I really like it and I really enjoy stitching it.  I think I feel too much pressure to work on the Christmas stuff.  I have a few small projects I want to finish and then I might start making this one more of a priority.
