A small Christmas finish

Good Morning Everyone!
We just had a thunderstorm roll though, lasted about 10 minutes and we got an inch of rain and stuff blown all over the place. Some places got hail but we miss it! Thank goodness!!!!

Last week I was thinking about Christmas ornaments and realize I had not stitched any for a long time. So I grabbed my new Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament 2013 and found 8 ornaments that I would like to do. The first one I did was 2013 Santa.
I was going to show you my progress a couple of days ago but never got around to it.

 2012 Santa
Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2013
by Charlette's Collectibles - Charlette Dockens
14 ct  Preforated Plastic
Called for DMC Floss
Started - 9/13/13
Finished - 9/18/13

Has anyone else done any ornaments out of this Christmas Issue yet?

Here is an updated picture of Beneath the Sunlit Sky that I have been working on.
I have removed the 2007  and will be replacing it with 2013.

On Friday my DH got a new toy to play with this fall.

If you didn't know - this is a Combine which he uses to take the corn and beans out of the fields. We have always had one but it was much smaller so he figured it was time to upgrade. He is one happy guy!

And on Saturday I went and watched my grandson play football. He is only in the fifth grade but it was fun watching him any way. He plays center.

Well that is about all for today!
Happy Stitching

Your Santa is adorable, Denise. I have my eye on a few from this year's ornament issue.
The sampler is lovely with so many soft colors.
It's hard to believe that football and Fall are here. I bet your grandson was happy to have you cheering him on!

Your ornament is beautiful! I was in town this a.m. and looked for this x-stitch magazine and couldn't find a copy so lucky you to have one.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of the ornies that you stitch from it.

Catherine said...

Great stitches! Wow! That combine is huge!! I can only imagine how tricky it could be to learn how to maneuver ~ perhaps you can get some pics of him using it in the fields to show! How fun that you were able to see your grandson play.

Nice stitching. That combine will certainly help get the work done quicker. I'll bet you were a proud grandma at the game.
