For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the humble with salvation.

Over Here In Poodletown

Hi friends! I have one of Jacob's Christmas ornaments stitched up. Only one to go! This is called 'Noel Stamp Ornament 2011' by Jeannette Douglas Designs. You may not recognize it because it is only part of the pattern. I need this to fit into the metal Christmas tree frame ornament from our friend Nienke. This pattern can be found in the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazine.
I stitched this two over two on 32ct mystery linen. The black capped chickadee is one over one. I used DMC and french knots instead of beads to make the berries. I like it!

I am stitching December Joyful World but am not very far. I will show you next time.

It has turned turned cold here. We have had our first snow. It all melted. Hooray! ;)

I will be back after Thanksgiving, so I want to wish my American friends a Blessed, Happy Thanksgiving!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

That is a lovely little ornie. I'm not so familiar with the older issues, I only have them on CD not in paper format.
