More Christmas Ornaments ...

Two more ornaments arrived yesterday; I'm just getting photos posted tonight...

First up is the ornament from Vonna; it's a beauty. You may recognize this as the 1991 Prairie Schooler Santa! It's stitched over one on 25ct Ivory Lugana. I just love it!!!

Next up is the ornament from Carol. This design can be found in the 2008 JCS Ornament issue. It's from Midsummer Night Designs and it's called Christmas Angel. Carol stitched it on 36 ct light sand. I really like it!

Wish I was better at staging these pictures and that I had better lighting to work with! Aren't they both beautiful? Thanks Vonna and Carol!

These are both gorgeous ornaments. I always have trouble photographing my stitching. I am sending my DH on a photography course so he can use his fancy camera and take better photos for me.

Vonna and Carol did a beautiful job. I'm sure they'll look wonderful on your tree next year.

Oh wow, they are both beautiful! Lovely stitching and finishing. I think you did a great job with the staging of the photos, but I relate to that dilemma!
