Fully Finished Gallery #7

I’m not sure where the time has gone, summer is almost over.  I have not stitched all over the summer.  Every day I spent swimming at my friend Lisa’s house.  This is the last week of fun because Lisa (SK teacher) will be back in the classroom next week getting ready for school to begin the day after Labour Day.  

I started finishing some ornaments at the beginning of the month, but didn’t finish them in time for the check in on August 10.  I finished the last one this morning and thought I’d share them anyways.  Nothing too exciting, but I’m happy to cross off 6 more from my list.

The first 3 ornaments are all finished with a green felt on the back.  This one is a Dragon Dreams ornament from a 2012 Christmas magazine which I stitched in 2016.

This one is from the Omni Book of Exotic Pets.  I stitched it in 2006.  It was supposed to hang beside our turtle tank for our pet turtle Frodo.  I never finished it.  She passed away last year (March 2018 from pneumonia).  Frodo was 12 years old.  I will hang it on my Christmas tree as a tribute to Frodo.

I think this one is a Sue Hillis Design.  It was in the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament 2008.  I stitched it in 2013.
This one I stitched in 2005 from the Cross Stitch Christmas 1992.  One of the few times I have stitched on linen (not my favourite).  I used red felt for the back of this ornament.

This ornament is purple because it is my favourite colour.  I used left over cording I made for an ornament last Christmas.  I also backed it with purple fabric.  This pattern is from the book called Sam Hawkins 520 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs.  I stitched this in 2002.
Here is the back showing the purple fabric.

Here is the last ornament of Jack Skellington’s face.  This was a free design I found online.  I stitched this in 2015 for my youngest sister Denise.  She loves The Nightmare Before Christmas.  I used a black felt for the back so it would match with the front design. 


  1. You made such an effort to finish lots of little projects this month that I couldn't let this post go unrewarded, so I reopened the link and added this post to August's FFG SAL. Well, why not?
    All of your projects are really sweet but I especially love the clever design of the Dragon Dreams 2012 piece. :)

    1. Thanks Rachel, i really appreciate this.

  2. All great finished ornaments, Jack is fabulous!
