Fully Finished Gallery #6

I’m so late with this update.  I don’t know what day it is these days.  I have been going swimming everyday at my friend Lisa’s house.  She is a teacher and has the summer off.  I don’t see her much during the school year, she is too busy, so we catch up in the summer.

For my FFG, I turned 2 cross stitch projects into ornaments.
Gingerbread Girl - stitched March 2013
June 2019, I stitched the outline in reverse and tried sewing them together, but it didn’t work they way I thought it would.

I then decided to sew it on top of a piece of brown thick denim type fabric I had in my sewing basket.  I added a ribbon for hanging.  I am pleased with how it turned out.

Gingerbread Boy stitched in March 2013.

Again I stitched a reverse of the gingerbread boy, but when it didn’t work for the gingerbread girl I didn’t waste my time trying to sew this one together.

Here is the gingerbread boy as a finished ornament.  They will look great as a pair on my Christmas tree.


  1. Sweet finishes! Nicely done!

  2. Very cute! I'm glad you were able to figure out how to finish them.

  3. Thank you for participating in the SAL again this month! I admire your finishes in that you've cut around their shape. This could not have been easy, especially on evenweave! Roll on December when you can display them as intended. :)

  4. They turned out great and look like cookies on cookies!
