Christmas Ornaments Part 1

Do you love Christmas ornaments? Do you like to collect them? Have you ever made ornaments for your tree? I have to answer “yes” to all three questions 🙂


Over the years, I’ve had lots of fun making ornaments. Each year, I’d make a few with the plan that someday I’d have enough to decorate our entire tree with just handcrafted ornaments!

When my daughters were old enough, they began to help me and eventually we had a nice assortment of different styles.

I thought you might like to see them, so I’ve divided them into 4 different categories and I’ll post pictures over the next week.

Today, I’ll start with the “Cross Stitch” Category.


Some I made and some were made by my daughters. Many are dated – I wish we had dated them all, though. Maybe you want to remember to do that!

Here’s a closer view of the top section of the photo!


And a better look at the ones at the bottom . . .


This is one of my favorites!


Luckily, I remembered to date it – 1988.

Yowza! Time does fly when you’re havin’ fun!
