Christmas Candles Bookmark

This quick little holiday stitch is from Alita Designs. While it’s labeled a bookmark, the size is reasonable for an ornament or other project such as the edge of a placement or napkin.

As always, be creative and have fun with it. Get the pattern [here].

I Love You Alphabet Ornament

I found this cute little alphabet sampler ornament on Pinterest last year and I’ve stitched it up twice now. It’s a great design and a super quick stitch, so it makes for a perfect last minute gift.

I think the next one I do, I’ll add beads for the I <3 U part so it stands out even more. The pattern has both lower case and upper case alphabets, you can stitch just one or stitch both and have one on each side of the ornament. Pattern is available PosyCollection.com

Happy Ornament Making!
