The Top Five

Hi friends! It is time for me to share my Top Five favorite Christmas ornaments from the JCS 2017 Special Holiday Issue. Except, I am sharing 9!! HA! Out of the "70+ Ornaments" in the magazine, I honestly only see myself stitching these 9. I am just listing them as I came across them in the magazine.

Aren't these great ones? I really like them. Do you? Have you seen this issue? Do you have a favorite? I still really look forward to this issue every year. I enjoy just flipping through old issues.😊

We continue to show our home. Which means constantly keeping it spotless.🙄

 I have been stitching up the freebie for my cubby shelf on 40 ct, one over one. I am getting close to a finish.

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement last time. I surprised all of you by our plans to move to an apartment. It is definitely a BIG change for us!

I hope you have a stitchtastic weekend my friends!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Great choice, Vickie. My favorite among the ones you chose would be the bauble by Patricia Ann.
I haven't seen the new issue yet and I don't know if I will buy it. I have most of the past issues and there are still some wonderful designs that I haven't stitched yet. Maybe I should stitch some of them before I buy a new issue :)

Manuela said...

Wonderful choice. So wonderful ornaments.
I will look at the new issue.
Have a nice weekend.

You picked a couple I didn't think about....one I picked is the one with the alphabet and it says Peace

Lillie said...

Pretty choices. Time to check with my local bookstore to see if the mag had reach our shore.

Robin in Virginia said...

Good picks, Vickie! Snow cone Snowman made my list. I think I have marked 12 from this issue. I usually mark a few more once I see them stitched by others. Enjoy your weekend!

Stasi said...

I always look forward to this issue for ideas to stitch for my grand kiddies!

Mii Stitch said...

What a nice selection!
I do not have access to this magazine unless I order it online, but I know it is always bursting with sweet little makes.
I live in a home but grew up in apartment and am forever asking hubby to move back in one... no success so far :(

I love this Christmas issue and always look forward to finding it at the store. I can't wait for it to arrive at a location near me! 😊 Hugs,

Carol said...

I was planning on ordering this today so it was nice to see your preview :)

Hang in there with keeping the house spotless--I know that must be exhausting!

Martina M said...

Hi Vicky, hope you are well, beautiful motifs you have chosen. My favorites are the two with the snowmen.
I wish you a great weekend, hugs Martina

Kay said...

I love the ones you picked out, i will have to look for this online in England. x

gracie said...

Wonderful choices.

Vicki said...

Great choices! I'm eager to see your shelf in the upcoming holiday motifs.

Beth said...

Like the LK and the 2 snowmen. Am still waiting for my Barnes and Noble to get this issue. Big, big changes in your life - hope all is well.

marly said...

Number 4!

Margaret said...

You chose some pretty ones!

Maggee said...

Several of your favorites were also my favorites. At least there were some this year, cause I remember last year... not so much! Hugs!

I went off the magazine a few years back but I love that you have managed to get so many positives from it. I am even beginning to see it in a slightly new light!

Andrea said...

Mine came in the post yesterday. Only having had a quick flick through I'm a little disappointed with this issue. There is only about 3 maybe 4 I would stitch. Of course when people start showing their finishes I may look at pieces in a different light. Have a good weekend.

Mary said...

Vicki, I see you found some pink!!! Do you order this online or do they sell it at the craft stores? I didn't notice it there the last time but that was over a week ago.

Good luck on selling the house, it must be tiresome to keep it "show" ready. Mary

Lili said...

Lovely choices, Vickie! Love the Lizzie Kate ornament!

Patricia Girard said...

As others have said, as soon as I see others' stitching, I want to stitch it myself. We have some in common and I want to do the hardanger tree as well. Good luck with your move!

Carolien said...

Hello dear Vickie,

Those ornaments are lovely, enjoy!
Have a good week and waves & prayers across the ocean,

Carolien

Julie said...

Nice preview of the magazine showing those you ornaments you like. My newsagent doesn't get it for ages yet so will have to wait to see it later this year.

Regine Karpel said...

Beautiful.

Maggie said...

Nice ornament choices :-)
I've only got a couple of the ornament magazine, they are quite
expensive to buy in the UK.

Von said...

I think this year I am not going to get the ornament issue as there are still so many from the previous issues that I might stitch up. But I do like the designs that you've posted here Vickie!

RJ said...

So many great choices, Vickie. I really love the snowman ornaments...so sweet. RJ

Astrids dragon said...

So many cute ones, I especially like all the snowmen!

Mary H said...

I haven't "officially" received my copy of the magazine yet, but I do like the verse on the My Big Toe one, I think I'll make that myself, for sure! I like all your choices though-can't wait to see them! :)
