DJ's November Ornaments

Hi Everybody!  I hope everyone is safe and healthy!  Are you getting lots of stitching done?

I've been trying to finish up ornaments, but didn't quite get to the all of them.  Hopefully by this time next month I'll have finished ornaments to show you.

I'm only participating in two themes this year.  First up is the 12 Days of Christmas.  This is from the Stoney Creek Magazines from 2019 and this is 11 Pipers Piping.

The next theme I'm working on is the third theme and this months pattern was from the 2017 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue.  It's called Warm Hands, Warm Hearts designed by The Little Stitcher.  I'm hoping to get these both finished by next Monday!  Wish me luck!!

That's it for this time!  Happy Stitching everyone...and for those celebrating, Happy Thanksgiving!

Suzanne's November Ornament

Hi everyone! I have one ornament for this month following Just Cross Stitch Magazine theme. I stitched the Nutcracker Ornament by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery from the June 2017 issue. I stitched this on 18 count white aida with the DMC threads except I don't have any Kreinik so I substituted a yellow/gold floss. He's finished as a flat ornament and I plan to give it to my neighbor who is having her first baby in December. 

Since I took this picture, my cat has chewed the gold ribbon off the top! I think I'll be able to cut it off and try to figure something out. At least he didn't chew the ornament. 
Can't wait to see everyone's finishes this month. Take care!
