You may have seen two of these ornaments when I was stitching them in Jolly July but I don't think I have shared them fully finished.
Oliver requested a reindeer for this years ornament. I had bought a magazine chart off ebay a while ago, it was quite vintage looking, a round finish in a hoop with Santa in the middle and all the reindeers around him. I chose to stitch Rudolf on his own and finished as an oval.
Isn't he cute? I think this is one of my most favourite stitched finishes and Oliver loved him when he opened him this afternoon. I may have to stitch another reindeer this year too :-)
I chose a snowman for Arty. This is Frosty Flakes by Little House Needleworks.
I think he came out really cute too
Arty has two ornaments this year because being a bad nanny, I didn't finish his for last year.
I think this is a Lizzie Kate one, although I can't find the chart now so i'm not certain.
This was all stitched up last year but I didn't like the trim so this year I took the trim off and replaced it, I think it looks much better now.
I've fallen behind with finishing and still have Bonnie's and Jacob's to make up, hopefully I can do that at the weekend.
There are some lovely goodies in todays advents. I opened a Mr & Mrs Rabbit Yarns one today which included a lovely lavender sachet and an angel charm, along with the one from Jo and Lisa. Jo also included a little container of bulb stitch markers. I do love the bulb ones, thanks Jo. The tea light is from my candle advent and is a Winter spice, very nice.
