Christmas Ornaments

In an effort to get back to Watergarden before the end of the year, I've been stitching on Christmas ornaments for the past week. I've chosen the JBW Red Stockings thanks to Dani's pics from last year and am doing them on 28 ct evenweave over 2 with Crescent Colours Red Ribbon. So far I've finished Leaves and Vines...

And finally (for now at least) Scandinavian Stocking...

So that's 3 down and I think about 5 more to go. The stitching's the easy part, the finishing has me a little nervous because of the rounded edges of stockings but I'm going to try to find a nice template to help out with that since I'll be finishing by hand. Finishing square or rectangular ornaments is so much easier but every year for the past few I've tried to challenge myself in the finishing department so we'll see what happens.
Not much else going on in our house for the moment. Josh is officially 3 years old now and just had his pictures done today. I wish I could share because the photographer did get some cute shots but I'm sure copyright forbids that so you'll have to take my word for it. Other than that we're getting ready for the holiday weekend which unfortunately includes work for both Erich and I, the downside of working retail.
