Merry Christmas Ornaments

Merry Christmas Ornaments is the first of our holiday designs this year. As many of you will notice, it is something of a companion piece to my ornament Merry Christmas that appeared in the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue this year. Both are done using the same all DMC color palate. I happen to love the vintagey pink, aqua blue and green holiday color scheme, but if it's not quite your thing, this could easily be done in another color palate. Just choose your three favorite holiday colors for the ornaments and Voila! - a perfect match to any holiday decor!

I am also in love with the finish on this design. Vonna from The Twisted Stitcher did a beautiful job turning it into a custom cut cube - complete with little crystal ball feet! She had also done the finishing on my JCS ornament, using the same pink and white polka dot fabric on both. You can visit her site at She will be posting some more pictures of the cube there sometime soon.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and be sure to check back here Monday for a picture of our second new holiday design, Gingerbread Houses.
