Since I am stitching for current Christmas gifts and can't post any photos, I thought I would post some of my favorites from the past.
A Shepherds Bush from the 2000 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue. It won an Honorable Mention in the 2001 North Carolina State Fair (I think it could have done better, but I was a novice at finishing and had a bid of trouble).
2009 ANG or EGA project, designed by one of our members.
A netted ornament from a class I took in 1999.
This angel I made in 1994 and it won a third place ribbon in the L.A. County Fair.
Miss Maddie in 2009 with her new toy.
This from Issue 39 of Jill Oxton's Cross Stitch magazine (1999). The legs and arms move up and down when a string is pulled. It won a third place ribbon in the 2001 North Carolina State Fair.
This is also from the 2000 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue. I made two that year, one for my brother's family and one for us. It was fun to stitch.
I made this in 2009 for my friend, Sandra. Sorry I do not know the design or designer.
These two Santa I made in 2005 or 2006. I have looked high and low for designer information and can't find it. I want to say it is through Rainbow Gallery, but I am not sure.
These are just a few of my favorites that I have made.
At this point I realize I have not made our 2016 ornament!! Yikes, I best get stitching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I may post other of my ornaments later and maybe do a post on ornaments I have gotten from friends and exchanges. I have them on their own metal ornament tree.
