I've been busy working on a few ornaments from the Just Cross Stitch issues.

First up is "Scared Folk Pumpkin" from the 2009 JCS Halloween issues. I had hoped to have this finished by Halloween, but ended up finishing it on Sunday. I just need to get a hanger for it.



I also completed the first of what will probably be five of "Sugar Plum" from the 2008 JCS Christmas Ornament issue. I'm planning on giving these to my aunts and sisters-in-law for Christmas.




The finishing is cellophane and ribbon to make it look like a candy wrapper.

Both of these were stitched on sewing cards from Tokens & Trifles. I loved stitching these, especially the sugar plum, because the detail on the card makes it look like it was a lot of work, but it was very simple. I can think of a million of things to make with these cards. I love the flag banner they have on their website.

Off to keep stitching more sugar plums (and that other stocking, too)!
