In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Oh, Christmas Tree . . .

 The tree is decorated, and I have two more ornaments in the finish-finishing pile. Both had been started some time ago, and it was past time to get them stitched.

The one on the left is a Barbara Jackson design from years ago. I bought it at Haus Tirol on one of my visits. I really miss that shop!

On the right is a Fern Ridge design that I think came in a goody bag at Christmas in Williamsburg, which used to be one of my favorite events. 

I was asked to describe my ornament finishing process, and I'm going to try to take photos of it, step by step, when I put these together, so stay tuned!


  1. What lovely ornaments ,you have been busy.
    Well the storm was pretty bad but we seemed to be ok just some big plant pots went over at the front of the house.
    And I mean big .
    There were a few deaths up country and lots of trees down.
    Lucky it slowed down by the afternoon , so we could go to our first Christmas dinner with friends .
    Have a good Sunday .

  2. Thank you, Ann, for sharing your finishing process. I am looking forward to seeing your photos. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!

  3. Can't wait to see how you finish, Ann. I'm always learning something new when stitchers show their methods.
