Santa Sunday Ornament Finishing

This year's mission is to have all my 2018 Christmas ornaments for family and friends stitched, finished and popped away by September. So far I'm on track as I've been participating in the weekly #santasundayxs on Sundays and sometimes fitting in more ornament stitching during the week.  Another thing that helps is to have plenty of patterns kitted with threads and fabric ready to go so as soon as one is finished, I can get started straight away on the next.

I recently had a lovely afternoon finishing a few stitched ornaments, also catching up with some crafting friends.

Gorgeous finishes! I wish I found it fun to do the finishing...

Cute ornaments, and cute finishing!

Gorgeous finishes!! I'm impressed that your goal is having them all stitched and finished by Sept, you are a determined woman! Love your finish on majectic bird. I stitched that one but it's not finished as nice as yours.
Love the Peace on Earth, I love the chalkboard look and I think stitching on the gunmetal linen will be easier than on black for me. I'll have to reconsider these charts now. All four recipients are very lucky to receive such lovely ornaments! ```
