Today I decided to stitch my ornament for the 2009 Christmas Challenge. I chose "Peace Christmas Ornament" by Jeannette Douglas Designs. It is from the 2004 JCS Christmas Ornament issue.

I stitched it on 28ct. Lugana white with silver. I used DMC Variations #4240, Pailettes from The Sweetheart Tree and Mill Hill crystal petite beads. I think it turned out pretty good!

I didn't stitch on "The Branch" tonight, but I see that the last pattern, #5, is out. It is a birdhouse--very cute! I guess I will be going to the stitching store later this week!

I decided to pick up my Isa Vautier SAL and got a pretty good start on part 5.

Only 1 more part to this and it will be done. YAY!!!

Thanks for visiting and for all the wonderful comments that are left. I appreciate it.

Have a good day!

Your needleroll is gorgeous. I know first hand that Jeannette Douglas is not an easy stitch.
Your sampler is gorgeous. Nice work.
