Christmas stitching

Yesterday I made the very last of my Christmas gifts and what a good feeling it to have them all done except for two projects I need to frame this week. I had decided earlier in the year I was going to "attempt" to make several Christmas presents so in about July I wrote out a list of what I intended to do and made goals for each month to try and get them done. Some months I achieved more on the gifts than others. Here are two that I don't think I've shown on here yet:



This from the Chocolate Lovers pattern by Lizzie Kate and is for a cousin who works at a Chocolate House - what a great job that would be!



this a Shepherd's Bush design, although I'm unsure of the exact name of the pattern.

Lastly, this is the lovely ornament I received in the TW Board Christmas Ornament Exchange from Rachele in the US

You've made some great Christmas gifts Katrina. I love the idea of putting bells on the ornie. My family in Dunedin tell me that they are having very cold weather so I hope Summer is hiding out in the Hawkes Bay. Have a great Christmas!

I love to cross stitch and quilt. I mostly quilt. How wonderful that you make Christmas presents. I have qiven many quilts away over the years. Most of them. It seems that almost everytime I make a quilt it is actually intended for someone else.

Your pillows and ornaments are gorgeous,Katrina! I hadn't planned to stitch the latest 2 you did (Love and Joy), but now I've seen yours, I think I'm going to have to add them to the list!

Merry Christmas to you and your family and I hope your weather improves. We *might* have snow for the first time in years, if we're lucky :)
