Hello Friends, it’s time for another Joy of Needle and Thread update. I had shared with you before Christmas last year the Christmas ornament Miss Baby stitched for my sister for a handmade gift exchange.
Ever since that ornament, Miss Baby managed to finish stitching for herself two more Christmas ornaments before the end of 2014. These ornaments are quite small – about 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ finished.
The Christmas tree stitching is just a repeat of the one she stitched for my sister, except we added more colors, and an extra “tree layer”.
Miss Baby used a chart for the first time to stitch this adorable bird. Her comment to me was, “Mom, this is good for Math.” She meant the counting part of reading the cross-stitch chart was good for her Math skills, ha! As she was stitching along, she also told me it was amazing to see the stitches come alive in the picture.
Here is a sneak peek of Miss Baby’s current project — for her new cousin:
Thanks for stopping by! My joy is indescribable as I see the next generation enjoying needle and thread.
