Christmas ornament

Hello all I hope you had a good Easter and if your in the UK enjoying this glorious weather.

We had a lovely weekend with family visiting. The boys had too many eggs as usual lol and we are now enjoying the holidays.

I am hoping this year to have a few cross stitch ornaments on the tree. I say this every year but by the time I see every ones on their blogs it's too late!! So this year I have started early. I have a few designs already stitched up but this is the only one I have finished so far. I stitched it sometime in February and did the finishing last week. I am awful at finishing and have a huge pile of items to be finished. So please excuse the shabby edges of this. I used some felt ribbon for the trim. If you live in the UK please can I ask where you get your trim from? This is a Lizzie*Kate design and I love the whole set. Hopefully I will get the lot completed one day lol.

Thank you so much for commenting and visiting my blog I really appreciate it. It puts a smile on my face to see a comment.
Have a wonderful weekend

  1. What a lovely finish this is I really like this cute design and you have finished it beautifully.

    It depends whereabouts you like in the UK - I get my trims from Boyes (a North East store), I also look in gift shops as they often have East of India trims - usually ribbon/braid/buttons - it can get a bit pricey sometimes too.

    The haberdashery dept in good stores like John Lewis and House of Fraser often have some trims as do most local markets, there is a good market in Durham for things like large headed glass pins and cords

  2. Welcome to blogging! I'm glad you left a comment on mine so that I could find you :) I've added you to my reader.

    Love your ornament. And I really love your previous finish too, that blue is so pretty!!!

  3. Hi , welcome to blogland. No probs you putting my blog on your sidebar, most people don't ask to be honest lol.
    I tend to get trimming bits from the ocal indoor market which has a habadashery stall which is really nice.

  4. Your first finish ornament looks perfect to me. Looking forward to see more...

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. A wonderful finish. My trime usually come from the local markets.

  6. A lovely finish. I usually get my trims from Boyes and also Hobbycraft.
