Ornamentizing and Other Stuff

I have seven grandchildren and make each of them an ornament each year. I try to have the finishing completed by Thanksgiving. I really should do it as I stitch the ornaments, but I always procratinate.I would much rather stitch them than finish them and I HATE to sew on cording because it takes forever. I only have three more to do the finishing on and all the grandkids are finished.






I've made some progress on Jan's Quaker Silence design. I'm really pleased with it. It's slow going because 40 ct. takes me forever.


And Blue Ribbon's Peppermint Twist is nearing completion finally.

Thanks for the comments and Happy Stitching!

Beautiful ornaments, Kathy! Quaker Silence looks great, as does Peppermint Twist. I really should pull mine out & finish it. I love seeing the ornaments that you do for your grands each year.

Your ornaments look really great. I'm like you - when the stitching is done I start procrustinating. Forever. I don't like the finishing but I like the finished projects so I'm always in a kind of dispute with myself, lol.
