Christmas Swap

Now that Halloween is over I guess I can talk a little about Christmas. I really shouldn't since Thanksgiving is not even here but I must I love Christmas so much.

I am in an ornament swap and this is a test run to see if I should make these. Part of me says yes and the other is no keep them for yourself. I really like the patterns from Sublime Stitching.

I have become a swap addict lately and mostly embroidery don't get me wrong I like to sew and crochet but right now the embroidery but has bitten pretty hard and I have no will power to speak of so embroidery I must. Next time I type it will be with embroidery calloused fingers.

I think these would be wonderful ornaments for the swap. I'm in the same swap and think your ideas are adorable. Sublime Stitching patterns are great!

I can not wait to see what you do for the swap. I think I will go with something similar I need to center them a bit better they are a little to spreadout.

cute! I especially like the tree embroidery. I am seriously wishing my husband would let me put up our tree already! I'm afraid I'll have to wait until the day after thanksgiving though

I love the candy cane one! I usually end up swapping when I have the same problem as you, as I figure I can always make myself another one at some stage.

I am sure we're twins, as the embroidery bug totally got to me too! And I have no willpower :P

I always say I will make something again but never do. I am always ready for a new project not the same old one.
