My favourite ornament in different colours and exchange received from Patti.

Hi everyone, I thought I would show you my latest obsession!

I just love stitching this ornament from the Just Cross Stitch 2008 Magazine designed by Nancy Boyarsky of Glory Bee. I have stitched it about eight times now, I gave two to my sister, one for an exchange, and I made a purple one for a giveaway last Christmas that you can see here.

Don't you thing it's amazing how different they look by just changing the colour?

I think the reason I like it so much is because I can stitch it in one evening and it is so effective, and I love stitching the rhodes stitch in the middle of each star design.
Here are the ornaments showing a close up view, you can click on the photo's. 

I think I stitched these on 32 count linen

I have also received a beautiful exchange from Patti in the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange group.

Patti made me this lovely thread holder in 40 count Permin linen in 1 over 1 stitching and included a scissor fob and some threads, I was thrilled with it, thanks again Patti!

Stitching news
My exchanges are all complete for 2009 and I am now planning one of my first private exchanges for January 2010, I have quite a few planned for next year and I am looking forward to all of them.
I am currently making another box to store some of my pins, needles and threads, I will show a picture when it is finished.

Hopefully I am going to work on The Porch Swing by Paula Vaughan as I have neglected that one lately.

Have a lovely stitchy week and thankyou for all of the lovely comments on my previous post.

Isn't it interesting how these ornaments, although the same, look so very different. Very beautiful job!

Kathy said...

Each and everyone is beautiful. I was the lucky winner of an ornament of this design from Andrea. It is just as beautiful a pattern in person as in photo.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas.

I love, love, love the black and silver version! It's just gorgeous!
That's a lovely thread holder.

Patti said...

You are so very welcome. I think my favorite Merry is the black and white one - not that you asked mine you. But - there you go.
Lots of Love

Love all your color variations...very creative.

I really love seeing these in all the different floss combinations. It's very inspiring to see what can be done with just one pattern and some imagination!

Nancy M said...

I love how people will take one pattern and change the colors. I might not like the original much and then see it stitched in a totally different colorway and it's so much more appealing!

CindyMae said...

They are all wonderful, just love all them different. Great job! Wonderful gift received as well!

Taking that one pattern and switching up the colors is facinating!! I love all of them!~ I sometimes get "fixed" on one design and make in constantly...Now I need to switch up the colorways and change the efeects..Thanks for the good ideas..I love your blog. Here's hoping your Christmas is great! Faye

Sally said...
