Today's picture walk.....

Greetings friends and fellow Stitchers...... Brrrrrrr here in the Carolina's! December is here, decorating is happening and festivities are scheduled.... The sights and joy of December~~

I wanted to share a few recent ornament finishes to help get, and keep, you in the holiday mood~ your beautiful cross stitched pieces have come to life so nicely... These recently left my craftroom and are now being displayed in your homes....

A few of you have inquired about the braided hair on this recently posted Shepherd's Bush stocking....
I used mohair thread that she provided, (specified by SB..)... After practicing hand braiding, I carefully attached using the same mohair thread for both the bands and the braids.... Somewhat tedious, but easily learned, I feel it's the perfect touch to this sweet child~ Again, thanks for all the inquiries....

I put a pocket on the back for notes to your friend....

Hoping you enjoyed these ornaments.... Enjoy your day and happy stitching~

You are so sweet to,share these photos of these finished pieces. As I have said before, they are so lovely just as a stitched design and your amazing finishes turn them into beautiful, treasured keepsakes. Just wonderful!

And thanks for sharing your picture, too. It's always so much fun to see the beautiful person behind all the magic.

Happy Holidays.

Another wonderful post! I love the fabric the stitcher chose for Farmhouse Christmas, and how you finished it with the blanket stitch, and used jute to tie on the bell and add a handle. And the Prairie Schooler chart? I've had that chart for YEARS, but would never have thought to use beads in the corner. Your finish on that is so sweet. And I just love the pocket on the Remember Me pillow - you give such attention to every detail. Thank you for this inspirational treat!
