Starry Night Ornament

Hello everyone

can I just say how lovely it was to read your comments on my last post - they sure do brighten my day, and I appreciate them so much :)

This little pattern has been in my "to stitch one day soon" ornaments folder for absolutely ages, and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.




Starry Night Ornament

from the Gift of Stitching Issue 47, December 2009

This is my lovely snowball tree, covered in its autumn leaves, so pretty :)


Have a wonderful day :)

Lovely ornie, Katrina! That reindeer is so cute!

Why do they call it a snowball tree? does it have white flowers that bloom?

I do enjoy your blog and you have inspired me to do some cross stitch after ??years as I have been into quilting. I went to a fabulous embroidery shop in Birkenhead Auckland on saturday and fell in love with a gorgeous christmas book - I just had to purchase it "Sweet Nothings for Christmas" I love every design in the book.

Love the ornament finish! I think Helga's designs are so cute. I have this one printed off and ready to stitch at some point. When?... who knows, lol!
Beautiful autumn colours. It's my favourite season of the year.

Very nice ornament! I like your idea of the ornament file - maybe if I had one of those I might actually get some stitched for myself. Thanks for the inspiration.
