A Giveaway and Some Ornament Finishes

Good morning my friends! A big welcome to my new friends! It is chilly here,but sunny. =) Hope you all are well. I wanted to show you the XI ornaments all finished up.
Jacob's is in the center, to show you how I put their graduating years on the backs. I am happy with them. They have no idea. That part is fun. Into the stockings they go tonight. =)

I also finished my mother's angel ornament up this way.
I found these little frames at the larger JoAnn store in the city. The only complaint I have, is that when you use two pieces of linen or evenweave in there, the stitching gets  a tiny bit smushed. It is not too noticable. If you recall, back in October I had asked for advice on these. I just cut the pieces of linen to size and put them in there. That simple. Done.

Isn't this pretty? A surprise from Brian this week. ♥
My friend Laurie passed this on to me to give to you.
Would you like it? All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment on this post telling me you would like it.
I will draw the name of the winner next Wednesday, December 12th.

I am still stitching an ornament for our own tree. I do need to get some Christmas cookies baked. And get the tree decorated. First I need someone to haul it upstairs for me!!

Have a blessed day in the Lord my friends!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Sweet Mabel looks worn out from all your busy stitchy projects. I have never seen those little frames but now you've got me thinking about stitching up ornies for my nieces and nephews.
Please enter me in your drawing as well because I "need" more stash. LOL

I think the little frames worked great! Makes for a great matched set without all the extra hassle of cutting loads of little fabric pieces.
