Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas Ornament arrived at it’s new home!

Now I can show you the ornament I stitched for the Christmas Ornament exchange in the Hooked on Exchange Too group as my partner Marjean has now received it.

Including the goodies

This is a Glory Bee pattern designed by Nancy Boyarsky featured in the Just Cross Stitch 2008 Christmas Ornaments Magazine on page 54. I decided to add beads to give it a little sparkle, I used the colours given in the pattern using DMC threads 816, 890 and 725 and I stitched it on 32 count Belfast Linen in Light Mocha.

I liked the design so much I made two – oops no I made three – no in fact I made four!!!! There was no way that I could part with this ornament unless I had a second one nearly finished all for myself!
The others are quite different, I shall post pictures when they are all ready.
I loved the fact that it was really easy to stitch.
Happy Stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Hi there. Lovely ornament. I really like the way you have done the top to look like a perfect trefoil. Very nice!!

    It’s lovely. I think I might have to stitch that one myself.
