Adding To My Ornaments

For the past week I've been concentrating solely on stitching Christmas ornaments. Although the final finishing still remains, I did manage to finish off  three. 
First up is Christmas Morning by The Stitcherhood. I love how this one turned out!

Next up is Lizzie Kate Feelin' Festive. This little ornament is so cute and I've admired it on several other blogs. It's been sitting in my stash since last year so it definitely was time to bring this one out.

Last up is I Believe in Santa by The Primitive Hare. This one has turned out to be too big for an ornament so I'm thinking of doing a flatfold finish for it. Seeing this photo I know I'm really in need of a new iron!

I'll be digging through my stash this week in the hunt for some finishing fabrics and trims.

I want to try and stitch as many ornaments as possible before the supplies arrive for my next big stitch. I'll be starting Blackbird Designs 'Tis The Season. I have most of the called for floss as well as the fabric and I'm only waiting for a couple of skeins of floss I was missing. Once that arrives I'll get started.

It's been a busy week here with family. I've had my son Dan visiting for the weekend and I'll be taking him home later today. On Saturday we all headed down to one of the clubs in Ottawa to take in the final show of my youngest son's group, Hands Of The Few. Chris and the boys have been playing as a group for ten years and this was their final performance as they are all heading in separate directions now. I can remember many times when our basement was used for practice. Theirs is a punk group and not really my kind of thing but we all wanted to support them and be there for the last show. Even my hubby went! Of course we supplied him with ear plugs first, lol! Here's an early pic of the boys, when they were first starting to play the clubs.

The following pics were taken by Tooma Productions who also took the photos at the zombie walk.  Fabulous job Brian! It's amazing that you even got these pics since there were so many people in the mosh pit at the front of the stage. 

  Good luck fellas in all your future endeavours!
