I made this ornament for a special Friend in work.  She is moving to VA and her last day in work is on Monday.  She will be so greatly missed by me.  Fatima is a person who makes it a little bit easier to be in work  and survive the corporate games they play.  I know I will stay in touch with her always.  She is one of my soul sisters forever.  I love you Fatima- F as in Frank.
Pattern is by Lizzie Kate.  I added two different fibers.

Fatima loved the ornament.  I gave it to her today.

Someone Stole my mom Christmas ornaments


Someone stole my moms christmas ornaments.  How sad is that.
I put together a box of ornaments from my collection.
Three collections I have been working on for a while -All Hallmark
Santa's from around the world,  Mary's Angels, and Flower Fairies.
Also put in a couple of extras - 2 cross stitch ornies among them.
We aren't supposed to be attached to things, so I let go of some
of my favorite ornaments.  I know my mom will be excited when she receives them.  Here is the good news, she keeps all of the cross stitch ornaments I make her on a small tree in her bedroom all year long.

Noel from the JCS ornament issue 2008
Page 20 by Prairie Moon.  This was by
far the hardest ornament I have done.
The finishing was extremely hard to do because
of all the curves.  It is the first ornament done with
felt on the back.  I love the Americana colors.
The stitching is always the easy part for me.
Finishing is the challenge.  This was definately a
big challenge.  Love when they are finished.


I have been working on two exchanges.  I can't
post pictures yet.  They are really nice.
