Last January, I started this series of ornaments as freebies on my blog. Where did the year go? It is already December 15th and only 10 days before Christmas. I have a small 3 ft. tree decorated with these little primitive ornaments. I hope you have enjoyed working on these as much as I had the fun of designing them. They were intended to be simple charts that could be stitched up easily in an afternoon. So many are overly busy in this day and age that I wanted to create something that was doable for you. There is still time to stitch a couple up even before this Christmas.
When I sat down to create this last ornament of 2009, this image came immediately to mind. I thought this would be a fitting close to the SAL. Who does not love the soft tones of this beautiful Christmas song?
But just days ago, I received an email from Hetty to thank me for the designs and tell me that her father had just passed away so the coming days were busy with arranging things for his funeral. I got goose pimples thinking of the design I was going to put on the blog today. It seemed so fitting for her right now. I want to dedicate this ornament to Hetty and wish her strength this week as well as peace in her heart over the loss of her father. And Hetty, it is you who should be thanked for faithfully stitching my ornaments and being a friend.
To print the chart, simply click to enlarge and either copy to an email or Word.
Hetty's (no blog) Sleigh Rides is adorable with the addition of the little rusty jingle bells.
Her ornament collection is complete and ready for the holidays.
Jackie contacted me recently that she had been stitching my ornaments. When she sent the the photo of her first one finished, all I could say was WOW! Primitive goes elegant!
And this version of Figgy Pudding is so sweet! I love the apron Alma Verónica made.
