I didn't buy this years JCS Christmas Ornament issue ... having read some reviews and seen the pictures on blogs, I decided it was just as disappointing as last year's issue ... I stitched only one of the ornaments from the 2008 issue. Instead, I will confine my ornament stitching to some oldies but goodies from JCS issues past and from the 2008 Gift of Stitching issues. To this end, I pulled out two similarly themed charts from the 2005 JCS ornament issue: Prairie Schooler's Partridge and Pears [really gorgeous] and Sisters and Friends' On the First Day of Christmas. If I am still in the mood for more ornament stitching, there are the charts for Four Winter Wishes, Do You See What I See?, and The Pinecone Ornament from Gift of Stitching.
In addition to my current WIPs and other planned Christmas stitching, that should keep me more than busy.
