Suzanne's September Ornaments


I've been working on the Nutcracker Theme this month. My sampler didn't have any hares so I went to my Just Cross Stitch Magazines for inspiration. 

First is Snow Bunny by Cross My Heart from the JCS 2002 Ornament Issue

I stitched this on 14 count blue Aida nd left the larger border off because it's already quite large at 4x4. 

My second bunny is Good Tidings to You by The Sampler Girl from the JCS 2011 Ornament Issue.

I had stitched the little bunny part before but never the whole ornament. 

I also worked on my Gazette 94 Twelve Days of Christmas. I had finished stitching number 4 last month, but forgot to post it. Here is both 4 and 5. I mixed up the thread color on the rings but decided to keep going. 


I also fully finished both of the Gentle Pursuits Designs - Christmas Eve in Old Salem from the JCS 2004 issue. I shared the stitching only in May of this year. I had a lot of ideas for these but went very simple so not to take away from the specialty stitches. I make houses or door themed ornaments for two of my nieces each year since they've bought their homes. 

I hope you all are well and I'm looking forward to seeing your stitching this month.

Oh my goodness, I love both your bunny ornaments, just lovely! Your two Door stitches are so perfectly stitched! What lovely gifts for your girls! I've been enjoying seeing your 12 days series too, such fun pieces! Well done!

What a lovely selection of ornaments for this month. I really like the Gazette 94 series for 12 Days.
The doors are very cute too.
