An Ornament Bonanza!

This evening I finished off the last of my JBW stockings!  Here's the final addition to the group :

Reindeer Stocking
c2010 JBW
Stitched on: Victorian Red Lugana 28ct
Stitched with: DMC 5200

I've been stitching them all on the same piece fabric

Here are MUCH better pictures of all the other stockings... I pulled out the good camera and put on my big flash too!

Chalet Stocking

Leaves & Vines Stocking

Christmas Trees Stocking

Hearts Stocking

Scandinavian Stocking

Today I did a little bit of finishing, I'm helping a friend of mine trim her tree tomorrow and I thought I'd bring an ornament for her tree.  I finished up this beauty with a couple of extra special touches.

R&P Peace

I had these pretty push pins that I've had for years.  I finally found the perfect use for one of them!

While I was at it I pulled out this little Prarie Schooler Freebie and finished it into a floss ring

I made the cord too!  I love having matching cord that's just the right thickness.

It looks great with this pincushion which I finished months ago, what a great matched pair!

Today I also went through all my stitched ornaments and paired them up with matching backing fabrics from my stash.  I'd like to get started on ornamentification so I'm not scrambling before I break for the Christmas holidays!

Also there's today's PhotoHunt, and the theme is Juicy
This photo was taken in March of 2010 on my Dominican Experience Trip.  On our first day we walked around the town of San Pedro de Macoris.  There were a number of stands around the city center where you could get fresh, juicy local fruit.  Imagine pineapples being local? Mmmmmm!

I had to chuckle at the porcupine pin cushion. What a look on his face!

Your stockings look wonderful on the red fabric, Dani--good luck with finishing all of them. Your "Peace" ornament, pincushion, and floss ring finishes are perfect, too...
