A Selection of 2012 Just Cross Stitch Ornaments

Hello friends

One of my favourite stitching magazines to buy every year is the Just Cross Stitch annual ornaments magazine. I always order a copy from Amy at Down Sunshine Lane to be sent as soon as it's released in the US as it usually doesn't turn up in my local bookshop until early December. I think I've got issues back to 1999 in my collection and every now and then I get them all out and have a good browse through. 

Anyways, when the issue first arrives I slowly read through the magazine and write a list of all the ornaments I wish to stitch, it's usually over half of the magazine!  Then I go through my list picking out designs for Hannah's, Mum's, my niece Zoe's and several others annual ornaments. Then I get busy stitching!

So here's a few of this year's picks:





Christmas Morning by the Stitcherhood




Santa's Hat Sampler by Knotted Tree NeedleArt



Christmas Love by Lizzie Kate
(stitched for my Mum)


Christmas Gift Sock Hop by Fresh Threads Studio
(stitched for Zoe)

I have a couple more waiting to be finished. Hope to share pics of these soon!

Happy stitching xx

What cute little finishes! I just polished off a couple of orni's myself but they don't looks half as good as yours :)

Love the little bell you attached to the one with the hat that kinda looks like a moon hehe.
