Christmas Finishes

I've been hard at work (play?) at the finishing table! Here's LHN's Season's Greetings.

For a quick tutorial on how to make templates for unusual shapes, see this post, and this one for a couple more details.


And here's an ornament from the 2016 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue.


I made a little tree using a cinnamon stick and a few snippets of evergreen trim from Hobby Lobby.

  5. Honeybee, The Seasons Greetings is in my to frog pile, I got all the way around with the border and it did not match...yours is inspiring me to redo it. I love how you kept the shape of the stitch and appreciate the tutorials. It's finished lovely as the other Christmas stitch! Nice addition of the tree too! Mary@stitchingfriendsforever
