Counting down until Christmas

Only five weeks left until Christmas, three until school finishes for the year! Where's my paper bag *gasping frantically*? Ahh, that's better! As much as I love the slower pace of school holidays, it seems we lose half our summer to Christmas preparation and celebration. I have finished the stitching part of two of the four teacher's gifts this year. I am ahead of the game, compared to previous years! The top one is a design by Little by Little Design Co., found in the 2007 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue. This is for the first male teacher our family has had. Mr Brown teaches kindergarten, and is one of the most wonderful, caring teachers I have ever known.

And this design, by Mosey and Me in the JCS 2003 Ornie issue, is for his teaching assistant.

Keep an eye out for plenty more Christmas projects between now and December 25th. I have way more plans than hours in the day.

Emma, I just love that Heart!! So cool!
Your work is lovely, & I am envious, because I don't have the patience for cross stitch. Plus, my hands sweat too much!!

Ooooooh I love merry and bright!!! I need to find my old JCS issues and look for that one!

Me said...

both are lovely - but I particularly like the heart because of the (you guessed it) buttons

They are both BEAUTIFUL! I started "Merry & Bright" for our tree, but haven't stitched on it in a while - I should pull it out again.
