Hot Chocolate Cross Stitch Ornaments

Janlynn Hot Cocoa Ornament Cross Stitch KitLast week’s chart of the week was also a Janlynn ornament set. I decided not to buy the owl ornaments when I saw these cute hot cocoa mug ornaments!

Hot chocolate is kind of a big deal around here. The kids love hot chocolate nights, they get excited about it and they take it pretty darn seriously.

They get festive and stir it up with candy canes, they look for flavor options like mint and white chocolate, they love flavored marshmallows, and sometimes we get adventurous and make homemade marshmallows just for hot chocolate. if we’re out shopping and I stop into Starbucks they want their hot chocolate in a red cup, and they savor every sip.

Thanks to Amazon Prime, my ornament kit should be here tomorrow! Yay 🙂 Since chunks of my stash are still in a box from moving, I’ll be working on these over the holiday break.

You can get the set on Amazon at a great price (the owls and other sets are available on the same page too) Side note; if the cocoa mugs are showing out of stock when you get to the page, wait a few hours and go back. They were out of stock when I first found them and they were back in stock by the end of the day!

Happy Holiday Stitching!

Janlynn Owl Cross Stitch Ornaments: Creepy or Cute?

JanlynnOwlOrnamentsI am always on the lookout for owls to stitch up, and having a set of owl ornaments sounded promising. But two of these owls sort of creep me out with their eyes…

For the most part I really like Janlynn ornament kits, they have all sorts of cute groupings. And I really like owl designs to stitch. But for some reason I can’t fall in love with this set… those two owls are giving me the stink eye. Maybe I’ll just stitch the other four and skip those two?

Seriously… I’m not going to say which ones. You tell me what you think. Maybe I’m just seeing things where there aren’t things to see.
What do you think; creepy or cute?

The full Janlynn Owl Ornament Kit is available at a great price on Amazon.

Reindeer on the Rooftops on the 17th Day of Stitchmas

A few people have mentioned that they’re looking for reindeer themed projects this year and having difficulty finding them… so I went hunting myself and I concur, there are not enough reindeer patterns out there to be stitched. I found a handful of patterns, but not nearly as many as I hoped when I set out on my reindeer seeking mission this morning.
