Christmas Ornaments

This is Lizzie Kate's 1st Christmas, which I made for my daughter and son-in-law.  You have to excuse the picture; I took it back at the beginning of the month before the tree was up, so I simply hung it on the wall to photograph it.  I stitched this design two years ago for a new baby; you can see it here.  It's a quick stitch, although the finishing takes me a long time.  I think it would be better to finish it like a pinkeep, so I'm going to make a note of that and keep it with the pattern.
 I also stitched Nikademus by Raise the Roof designs, from the 2010 JCS Christmas Ornaments magazine.  Grace loves monkeys, and when I saw this design on the magazine cover, I knew I had to not only purchase the magazine, but stitch the design.  I especially liked how two different thread colors were combined to stitch his body and face as they were exactly what I'd expect for a sock monkey.  He's so cute, I could just squeeze him!

Oh my gosh...that really does look like a sock cute! And love the other ornament too. Great that you are stitching ornaments as gifts.

I need to catch up with you once again so I am going to leave your blog up and read back through today. In the meantime, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. I am not a day late here as we have first and second Christmas day as the Dutch call it. The holidays crept up on me this year which I guess is not surprising as we only just moved. :-)

Christmas hugs dear Ginny!
