'Tis the Season

I love the holiday season, the decorations, and all the handmade ornaments. Please enjoy a few pictures from my holiday cross stitch projects from Christmas past.

Remember these? These are the first four Prairie Schooler Santa cards, stitched and framed in the 80s. They were my first laced and framed projects, so I was pretty pleased with the results. I still love them! Here's a closer look.

And two more....

One Christmas past, I stitched and finished wreath ornaments for others and saved one for my tree....


And finally, one Christmas trip from the past I spent stitching the mini ornaments, below, that still hang on a small table tree....

Mrs. Claus, her animal friends...



Two of my favorites...


And Santa himself....

Happy holidays...from me...to you!

Oh yes I do remember those Santa's from the 80's. I did so much cross stitch back then.
I have now moved on to rug hooking, but I still like the looks of cross stitch.
