    I sure hope you snuck in during the night! I've got to finish those ornaments on the embroidery machine, plus the quilt that's on Queenie. That's after I paint another Christmas tree, 'cuz some 4 legged kid ATE ONE! She thought they were cookies! No wonder she got me up at 2 am!

    I love the snowflakes. I could put a whole row up in the front window from red ribbon.. I bought some little doilies this year at the thrift store to dip in modge podge to harden them so I can hang them like snowflakes after I dust them with opal glitter ala martha stewart. I love snowflakes and red hearts.. so pretty in the window. I will take six please. I bet those use up tons of your thread. Are you selling them at your show? or are they for your ornament swapper?

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Don't mind which one you send to me!!!! They're both beautiful. You do great work. Would look nice hanging on my "special" tree. That's the one in the diningroom that I hang all the special ornaments we get on. It's wrought iron and has white lights all over it. I change it for every season/holiday. But at Christmas it becomes extra special to me!!!! Send one my way!!!!!

    Those are beautiful! I love cross stitch, although I don't do it anymore. Not enough time for everything!

    Ooh, those snowflakes are really pretty! I'm afraid what I'm making is going to disappoint someone. Does anyone like primitive style ornies?

    Anastasia,
    I love both ornaments, but if I had to choose, I'd take the teal one!

    yeah, me too! I'm much better at quilting than I am at doing some of the other stuff! But, they're handmade!

    I love all the ornaments everyone is posting. My cross-stitch is done on the embroidery machine; arthritis prevents me from doing handwork anymore. Since I live near Amish country in PA, there are lots of primitive ornaments around. DIL loves primitive snowmen and has her house decorated in the primitive style.

    Those are cool Grann 6, much different from mine. Love the thread ornaments from above, those are sure pretty as well. I got mine all rinsed out and flattened. They are still drying. I sold a set of six which makes me thrilled. I bet if I put that glitter on them while they are drying, that would even spark them up more because of the glue residue in them. Also, I don't have my angels all done, but they are stitched out. Have to decide which ones to send and how many of them. Wonder if my receiviers have a special color. Hmmm, have to double check thru the thread to see.
    Yep Elizabrat, I am selling them. have to earn money to go to Montana for Thanksgiving. It is my daughters birthday on the 22nd of November which once every 8 years, her birthday lands on the same day. It is her birthday wish to be in Montana for the holiday so working towards that. Actually, they do not take all that much thread and when you are using the 50wt cotton thread, it is not bad. It just takes 45 minutes to stitch them out and the stabilizer is the more expensive part. never knew glue could cost so much when it is laid out in a roll. LOL) Yep, I did a purple one to just see how it looked and daughter wants that orange one, her favorite color. Name:  photo.JPG

    The gold thread on the angels is from Superior. I picked it up on sale last year from their website. It is a sliver gold metallic and it stitches so perfect. I tried to use the other metallic I have and it is miserable. I was so shocked. It shines so pretty. I am hoping tonight (inbetween quilting group, tomatoes, and stitching them out) that I get to finish the angels. I would love to get mine in the mail in the next couple days so I don't have this committment staring at me. I love this swap, I just get to stressing over time with so much to do and so little time to do it in. Yep, I am OCD and love it.

    Ok grann 6 where did you get your snowflakes from? I like those, they look so intricate and different than what I have.

    Oh my gosh! I just went through all the post and I love love love all the ornaments made so far! I haven't started mine but I will be making it sometime this week or maybe I will take it with me to do on my camping trip this weekend. I have to admit seeing everyone's ornaments is a bit intimidating so I hope mine will be loved as much as I love what I have seen. I will be making the ornament in my partners favorite color which is a non traditional Christmas color (don't want to give it away) so I hope she will love it! Can't wait to get it started.

    Just returned from the post office, my ornament (or ornaments) are on the way. Not far to go. Should reach their new home by the end of the week. I hope she or he likes them.

    I downloaded them from somewhere. Let me check and see where I got them. They look cool without the organza too, but are much more fragile.

    Okay, here are some websites. I think maybe the lace snowflakes came from www.emblibrary.com. Here is where you can find lots of machine cross-stitch. The ones I did came from Sudberry House, the website is www.machinecrossstitch.com. Also there is Vermillion Stitchery, and that site is www.vsccs.com I have done some large Santas and framed them. They make wonderful Christmas gifts. Most of the disks offer 3 sizes of each design for 14, 16, or 18 count canvas.

    They are beautiful! Just love all the embroidery ones, I'm so envious. Got all the thread I ordered today, holy ----
    think I got a little carried away, and all the stabilizer. Now to get it set up . Sent my ornaments out in the mail today. They're on the way.
    Now I gotta' keep working on the ones that have been ordered so I can get them sent. They're all cut out ladies, sanded once and am starting to do the fine sanding to finish. Then paint the little faces and poly coats...Just wanted you to know I'm working on them.
