Ornament Club Pattern Stitched by Pam R.

Stitched by Pam R.

Photos are rolling in from this year’s Ornament Club participants.

I can’t tell you how ridiculously happy this makes me!! I’m over the moon with enthusiasm for stitching and for the community around this website. You folks rock!

This is Pam R’s first stitched ornament in the group. She used a darker DMC on the green parts to get a better contrast with the fabric that she chose and I think it looks awesome 🙂

She used the DMC conversion, along with Rainbow Gallery silver metallic and stitched it on a pale green linen from Dove Fabrics.

Thank you for sharing your stitching with us, Nita!

Happy Stitching!

Snowflake Free Cross Stitch Pattern

Snowflakes make great ornaments and can be fun to stitch and embellish. Choose your favorite color or just use up your left over floss.

This is just the first in a long line of snowflakes that are about ornament sized, although I’m sure there are many other things you could use them for, maybe gift tags or something else.




Happy Stitching!

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town

… and fortunately Santa Claus can shop on the internet, because I haven’t left the house this week. ‘Tis the season for cold and flu apparently, and ugh did I get something icky this week. I suppose a few bugs are to be expected with four kids in four different schools, but that’s a rant for another day! On to the Stitchmas! Thank you guys for your patience during Stitchmas and between my medicated blogging sessions this week.

This is Comin To Town by The Prairie Schooler and I chose this selection because I like the rustic sampler feel and it kind of reminds me of a warm winter blanket and hot chocolate by the fireplace. (and I don’t even have a fireplace in this house LOL) [Read more…]

Calories Don’t Count at Christmas!

Don’t you wish that was the truth?! All the delicious goodies that we encounter during this season, it’s crazy scary if you’re trying to follow any type of diet.

This year my challenge is that I’m gluten-free and my husband is sugar-free — but the kids can have just about whatever they want. Eek! There are going to be treats everywhere.

The sugar filled cookies and frosted gems in this cross stitch kit won’t cost you any Weight Watchers points or cause an allergic reaction of any kind, but they will look super cute hanging in the kitchen or displayed on the cookie table at your holiday party. [Read more…]
