They're almost ready...

...shouldn't be too much longer!

Here is a little
pattern preview
of the
NEW 2009 Christmas Ornament
cross stitch patterns...

Vintage ivory buttons from Grandma's button jar & wings constructed from old sheet music adds extra charm to this angelic ornament!

Sweet Huck branches make perfect little antlers for this tree ornament. A tiny french knot works perfectly for Rudolph's nose...just love the simplicity of this guy!

Inspiration for this design comes from the olde favorite Christmas carol, 12 days of Christmas. This pleasingly plump French hen has various holiday motifs stitched upon her body. Old sheet music for tail feathers and wings gives the French Hen a nice olde-time look. In keeping with the French theme, Merry Christmas is spelled out in French!

I call these "day project" patterns... You can easily finish one of these in a day!
Got to love that!

With thy Needle & Thread,
