Here are my Christmas Ornaments.!

Hi Sweeties,

I know I am so behind in updating my blog for this month, just have been so very busy stitching, looking after doggies, and with life in general. But better late then never I say.! lol

Not only have I finished my Ornament for the Christmas Exchange on the Sanman Board, which I can not post yet until my partner has received it, but I've been busy till all hours trying to finish all the ornaments below.

It is a German Tradition that a newly married woman should have 12 ornaments on her tree the first year she celebrates Christmas with her new Husband. Since ---- and I will be celebrating our 1st Christmas together as a Married couple, I have been having a delightful time putting together these ornaments.

I have tried to enclude Designer and Pattern Name where available for you. Also flosses and Fabrics used.

#NB: GBHFloss is short for Gingerbread House of Floss - Hand dyed flosses.

Dont forget to check out the GBHFloss website on Christmas Eve for there will be 5x new flosses released and a contest to win the entire range of Hand Dyed Flosses..!!!

The first 4x Ornaments are ones that I have stitched and assembled this year. The others were stitched during the last few years but had not been assembled into ornaments yet which I finally finished this year. The last 3x ornies were already completed I just encluded them so you can see all the ones that are now happily hanging on my Pink, yes girls, PINK Christmas Tree.!
