More Stitching Pictures!

As you can tell, I'm still a novice at this blogging to post pictures and where to put my writing. Hopefully it will all come sometime, and I hope you will bear with me.
I attempted two new finishes this holiday season. The bell design is by Stacy Nash from last year's C-mas book, A Simply Early Christmas. I stitched this for a dear friend and I'm quite pleased with the result. She stitched the framed piece for me, isn't it lovely?
The JBW tree was for my stitch group exchange. I hadn't tried making a flat ornament before, but found it wasn't too difficult. I'm going to use it on a couple more ornament finishings this week, but I won't show them until after Christmas as they are gifts. The last picture is the stitch group ornament I received. It's very sweet and I love the braided hanger!


  1. Sharyn the stitching is great. Love the bell and happy it's hanging in my kitchen! I like the color combination of your font and background. Merry, Merry...Joy

  2. You are doing a great job with the blogging. Mine is pretty vanilla and yours is all jazzed up.

    Nice stitching both received and given. Love the piece that Janet did for you.

    Merry Christmas

  3. Thanks for the nice words about my blog, Kathy! It's a work in progress and I still want to tweek it a bit.
    My friend Joy stitched the sampler, she and Janet have the same initials. It is a lovely piece, isn't it?

  4. Lovely SN bell, I did one too, wasn't it a great stitch! I could them again and again:)
