Starting the 12 Days of Christmas

Last weekend I stitched two cross-stitch Christmas ornaments on plastic canvas, but I somehow managed to fail to take any photos of them. The ornaments were two from a set of seven designs created by Jody Rice of Satsuma Street for Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, Issue 208 (November 2015). Here are the magazine photos of the two that I stitched from the set:


She has a very similar set of ornaments available in her Etsy shop but they have a different color scheme.

I don’t have them anymore to photograph them because I turned them in at my embroidery guild meeting on Monday for the guild’s annual Christmas display at the local community center. I will try to get of picture of them in the display when it goes up.

But, I have started on a larger design. This one is also a design by Satsuma Street. It is her 12 Days of Christmas pattern. I originally was going to stitch the motifs as individual ornaments, but I have decided to stitch them all as one big sampler.

When I finish it will look something like this:


But, this is what I have managed so far:


Yeah, I predict you will be seeing updates on this one for a long time!
