Yes! It Is That Time Of Year....Ornament Issue Time

Every September I look forward to the release of the annual ornament issue from Just Cross Stitch. I have stitched so many ornaments from these issues. Thank you to all the designers that contribute each year.
  Here are a few of my favorites from this issue....
This sweet design by Nikyscreations. I have seen a few finishes of the design out on the blogs already.
I love this Mistletoe ornament from Ink Circles. I love the colors. The Holly ornament in the ornament preview issue is pretty too. The 2 designs are the same size and could be used to make a fabulous 2 sided ornament.
This one is from New York Dreamer. I like the overdoes.
This is by Cherished Stitches. I really like this border.
And Little House Needleworks. 
There are quite a few more that I would stitch. 
  This magazine is such a great value when you consider how much a chart costs.
So here is my start on the  Mistletoe ornament. 
   I am trying to get back to stitching some.
  I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. We are enjoying some beautiful fall weather.

Stitch On!

Looks like you've made a pretty good start on Mistletoe.

I have the ornament issue, but haven't started anything yet. Looks like it is a pretty good issue this year.

Mistletoe is looking lovely. That one narrowly missed my top 5! I'm stitching the LHN one but won't be showing it in my blog until December as it's for an exchange.

Yay! Good for you. Wonderful progress. I am stitching 'Just One More Stitch' right now. I am glad you have time to enjoy this weekend by relaxing.

I like your picks a lot. You picked a good one to start on too -- that one really caught my eye. I think we share at least 3 favorites!

Glad you picked up this year's ornament issue! I had heard around the 'net how many people were disappointed with this year's issue. Personally, I really like it and have marked at least 15 to stitch during 2015.

Your start on Mistletoe looks great, Chris!

I like the design by NIkyscreations but for the first time I've not been tempted to buy the magazine. The design you've chosen to stitch looks neat.

Vera said...

Yay! You found time to stitch. And, sounds like you are home!! Hope all is well Chris.
