More Christmas Stitchings

It's December and I have more stitchings to show!

First, an update on Elisa's Christmas Tree. It is progressing very slowly because I am stitching more ornaments!

A closer look, I love the red stocking and that candy cane!

Merry Christmas is a freebie from The Little Stitcher. The stitching is not completed yet ha ha! I am also stitching the Fairytale Advent Calendar. Laura designs 24 small and cute ornies! The next two pictures are taken from her blog.

I have completed 3 of the 24 little ornaments. Hopefully I will be able to stitch all the 24 ornaments before X'mas! I plan to do the finishing on all the ornaments this weekend ha ha ha!

I received a wonderful ornament from Marie P for the HoE Stitcher's Choice Ornament Exchange. She chose to stitch for me a freebie by Plum Street Samplers, Christmas Coffee 2012. Marie's stitching and finishing are gorgeous! Thank you, Marie, I love this ornament very much!

Besides boxes, I also collect scissors. Here is a recent addition to my collection! This one is from China, a well known brand "Zhang Xiao Quan".

A beautiful gift from my friend, Sonia. It's for my handphone! She is great at patchwork and quilting! Thank you, Sonia, I love it!

Nicola is celebrating her birthday in a big way in 2013. She is organising a Scarlet Letter Challenge, to  complete one or more samplers by The Scarlet Letter. Please visit Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year if you are interested to join the Challenge. I have added my name to the long list of stitchers. The Scarlet Letter website offers a wide selection of samplers, some stitchers already have many SL samplers in their stashes! I have yet to decide what I want to stitch for this challenge ha ha!

Thank you for your visits and comments! Please come back to see my ornies in the next update! I will also show you what I am going to stitch for Nicola's Challenge!

Happy Stitching!

I enjoyed this post very much Ellen.
You've been busy with your ornament stitching and they are all so pretty.
I love the quilted bag you received from your friend and what a beautiful ornament you received in the exchange.

Sonia's gift is so beautiful and useful. I love the design.

Friendship is certainly a gift of heart.

Ellen, your ornament stitching is so nice! I am really impressed. Sonia's gift is gorgeous, and I love the ornament that you received in the exchange, too. I need to get off my backside and get working on some ornaments after seeing how much you're getting done. ;)
