Ornament #7 is done: Seven Swans a-Swimming

#7 is done – and I couldn’t be happier.  Maybe, just maybe – I would have the entire set of ornaments displayed on our Christmas Tree this year.

number 7

Here you see ornaments #1-6 that I have stitched.  You may click here, here, here, here, here and here to view additional pictures of the ornaments.  [Note:  The designs are charted by Australian designer, The Cat’s Whiskers.]


Incidentally, sweet friend Lynette Anderson released her new stitchery Christmas ornament pillows.  Click here to check out the patterns for this sweet set of ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by.  So, curious mind wants to know if you are currently working on any Christmas projects!

I shall catch up with you later!   Hugs and Blessings.

  1. Well Wendy, I finally did it! I joined your Plain and Fancy BOM. My first 2 blocks should be here in a day or two. I love the blocks you designed and the fabric is beautiful. Can’t wait to get started!

    Hugs and Blessing back at you!

  2. #7 is complete!!!! Hooray!! All the ornaments are beautiful! What a nice addition to your holiday decorations. Nothing “Christmassy” going on here at the moment. Because we are in Civil War country and the150th Anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, I am leaning more toward “Patriotic.”

  3. Those are lovely and very typical of this very Norwegian/Swedish area we live in. No winter projects here. Too many birthdays in the next couple of months!! Plus, clients’ quilts take priority…..hmmmm….something a bit new for me of late. Have not had this since I shut down my sewing business 13 yrs. ago!!! Hope your weather has given you many outdoor opportunities!!!!

    This turned out so cute.
    I remember getting lots of little things like this done sitting in the car waiting waiting and waiting for my princesses to come out of activities and lessons.
    Adorable. I hope you are signing and dating the backs!!!!

  5. Love these ornaments!! You are making me want to get back into cross stitching!! Years ago I used to belong to a group but, unfortunately, it disbanded!

    Just got my July/August issue of McCall’s Quilting and saw your quilt Bird Watching. I have many floral prints in my stash and this would work.

    Have a wonderful week!!

  6. Those ornaments are beautiful. Your work is exquisite. I bet those become a family heirloom set that is brought out every Christmas. Just stunning!

  7. I love being over the halfway point of a project – the end seems more realistic.

    Christmas is nowhere in my brain yet – we have four family birthdays between now and September, so it probably won’t be until fall.
