I’ve yet to decide on a ‘proper project’ for this year so meanwhile have tagged several Christmas ornaments from the 2020 Just CrossStitch ornament issue and have made a start on them.
This pointsettia will be finished as a flat round and have silver cord and hanger.
I intend to finish Joy to the World as a flat rectangle with a thin ribbon to edge it and a broader matching ribbon as a hanger.
The diamond was three by three in the original chart but I scaled down as I didn't want such a big ornament to finish. I think a small padded pillow finish for this one.
And the last one for this batch is the Festive Jersey. I intend to make a small wire coat hanger from florist wire to attach at the neck so that it can hang on the tree with a ribbon - possibly a narrow white ribbon I think.
This is a great way to economically use up scraps of linen (of which I seem to have many) and floss from stash. I still have spare fabric on the left hand side and will make a couple more ornaments before I call it quits with this piece of linen.
And I admit to a certain feeling of righteous satisfaction at making full use of a small scrap of linen and in having a head start on this year's ornaments. But still no decision on the 2021 project :(
