Ornament of the Month – October 2011

Last week, just before the start of the CreativFestival, I finished up this month’s ornament of the month: Gingerbread Scissor Case from Victoria Sampler.

Gingerbread Scissor Fob from, Victoria Sampler

It is from the 2009 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. I stitched it on 28ct Antique Almond Cashel , using the tiny pack from Victoria Sampler. I also have the pattern, floss pack and enough fabric to stitch the Gingerbread Stitching House Collection. And, since this is now complete, I’m counting the house itself a WIP for WIPocalypse (like I need an excuse, or another project!).

So, two more designs to go and I’m at the end of my project. I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking with it, even though there were a few hiccoughs. (Too bad I didn’t do as well with my sock knitting idea. But there is always next year.) And, of course, I’m now thinking about what to do next year. I think I’m pretty good for Christmas ornaments now. Maybe I’ll try Halloween ornaments or maybe small Teresa Wentzler designs. What do you think? Check out the poll over in my right sidebar, and let me know.


You’re probably wondering what happen to my posts on the last two days of the Creativ Festival. Well, unfortunately, I am just exhausted, and I haven’t got it in me right now to write up a big post (this particular post, with the exception of this last paragraph, was actually written last week). I should have the final post ready in a day or so. But for now I will say fabric, books and a new sewing machine were purchased, dragons were stitched (okay, started), and there was much inspiration to be found.
