The Ornaments

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

As I mentioned before, I made Christmas ornaments this year for my family. A couple of the ornaments actually morphed into pillows, 'cause I thought it'd be fun to make pillows. :)

There was a lot of sewing involved:

I'm not so great at sewing, but I am learning. I don't like to do complicated things, like measuring and using a pattern. ;)

Cute, right? I just can't get enough of Mollie's patterns.

The backs:

I loooooooooove this one:

It's mostly satin stitched, which wasn't at all tedious like I thought it would be.

And here is the biggest thing I made, a pillow for my owl-loving sister in law:

That's all for now, my lovelies. I will be back next year with more stitchy goodness. Until then...

Happy Stitching!

Oddly, I happened to have this needlenthread.com open in another tab, on the "Monogram for Hand Embroidery" page, when I came across your blog post about this project. I don't know if this is where you originally got it, but here's the pattern -

Just FYI, since your Flickr page says you don't remember where you found it.
