Team Effort Christmas Ornament Finish

I have been up to some Christmas stitching and finishing since my last post. My mom and I both wanted to stitch Carol R's Sew Noel, so I stitched it in green and she stitched it in red!
It is stitched in DMC stranded cotton, 1 over 1 on a white 22 count Oslo Hardanger fabric.
It is finished as a "double sided" flatfold, so that, when appropriately displayed, both sides can be appreciated. Here I tried to "capture" both sides in one photo:
We also added charms to finish it off - a star charm on the green one and a snowflake charm on the red one.
I stitched Spot of Winter by The Drawn Thread earlier this year and it is now finished as a little pillow and ready to be displayed for Christmas.
I hope to have some more Christmas ornament finishes to show you soon. We will be putting our Christmas tree up this weekend - it is something I always look forward to - I absolutely love Christmas!
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Stitching!

Oh Michelle, what lovely finishes! I have the Spot of Winter and need to dig it out and stitch it up before the holidays - thanks for the inspiration!

Your flatfold is really great. Good that you and your mum are both stitching :)

I like the little pillow is very nice, too.

Post some photos about the Christmas tree. It is always so interesting to see how others decorate it :)

These are lovely! I like all of them!

Carol said...

How lucky you are to have a mother who stitches, too, Michelle! Both of you created lovely pieces! And that Spot of Winter pillow is so sweet--I may have to purchase that chart myself :)

Both stiching of you and your Mum turned out great. Great choices of colours, can't decide which i likes best.
The spot of winter pillow looks lovely.

Goodluck on putting up the tree. I am not looking forward to doing ours being hubby away, i have to do it all alone.
