Ta Da...Ornaments!



Some of you may recall seeing one of these prior to being finished. I finally had time last night to turn them in to ornaments. It's just a simple pillow (my finishing experience is limited and I didn't have time to try something new). I thought the beads added a nice touch. The design is from Nordic Needle, 2003 JCS.

We've had nearly six inches of snow already in just seven hours time. We're expecting it to continue to snow all day. I'm heading out to work now - I fear that it is going to be a long commute!

Have a great day!

Brrrrr! I can't imagine one inch of snow, much less that much ;) Your ornaments are great.

Cathy, your ornaments are beautiful! Your stitching is exquisite.
Sometimes simpler is better. Your stitching on those is so gorgeous, that it is perfectly set off with this simple finishing. Well done!
