Noel 6

updated on Dec 6

I saw a Christmas stocking ornament package, 12-pack, from a dollar store. They are cute, and look nice as a finishing touch. I stitched Noel with a small motif on vinal aida and attached them onto the ornaments. I’m going to pin them on a string to hang on a door or window, or on a frame…..several thoughts in my mind.

11th Wreath

I stitched "Joy", “NOEL”, "Love" and "Fa la la" on green aida and have made them into a wreath. Yes, it’s my 11th wreath, and I already gave it away. It’s very colourful and pretty.
