Cross Stitch Ornaments

For Christmas, I decided to make some Scandinavian-inspired ornaments. Well, I started a little late (as usual) and the finished ones just got bundled into a basket. I hadn’t done any needlework for quite some time and I’m finding it really enjoyable, but equally as hard on the eyes as staring at a computer screen.

  4. They turned out so sweet Pat. I did cross stitch many, many moons ago. Too tedious for me at this point wth the counting. Good job!! Margie

    These are wonderful, Pat!
    It’s been a long time since I’ve done any sort of needlework, but I always did find it very, very relaxing.

  7. How lovely. I especially like the red hearts, beautiful work. In my past life I did cross-stitch, now my eyes and fingers would not produce the beautiful work that you have completed!!

    Pat, wonderful work! I did some needlepoint a few years back when I broke my leg. I found it very therapeutic! It certain got me through some bad spots!
