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
