Ornaments a Plenty.....(342-344)

I've been decorating the tree today and thought ornaments would be appropriate for the Stitch Stroll. I'll be sharing a number of them over the next few days. I'll try to state the designer if I know it, but many were done when my girls were little and I have no idea from whence they came, except that I stitched them. I started doing one a year for them, but as they grew and our lives got busier, they fell by the wayside. I have resurrected the tradition with the grand kids however.

Of these three, I know the upper right was from Patrick's Woods (1994) and the Santa (1991), which is on perforated paper, is from Astor Place. The angel (1988)...who knows!!! 

Tomorrow we have to be at my daughter's house at 5 o'dark thirty. To get a flight on such short notice, they are driving to Dulles, leaving their car and renting one to drive to Newark, NJ. From there they'll fly to Frankfort, then Brussels and finally to Freetown. Coming home they just have to fly to Brussels and from there to Dulles. So we're taking care of Asher and Cora for the rest of the week...wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. That is some exhausting trip your daughter and SIL is making tomorrow. Thankfully the trip home will be a bit easier and certainly more rewarding with the children heading to the states. Such an exciting time in your lives! Having Asher and Cora will be exhausting for you but they will love having all your attention. I'm sure you will have some fun projects planned too!

    The ornaments are sweet, especially the young girl with the moon and star.

  2. What lovely ornaments! The one from Patrick's Woods is delightful - love how she's hanging a star on the moon! Your Santa is great too - I have a handful of those kits and seeing yours makes me want to get a couple of them done.

    Whirlwind trip for your daughter and her husband! My thoughts and prayers are with them.

  3. Fabulous looking ornaments from your Christmas past, Stasi! Enjoy your time with the grands for the next few days. I bet they are excited.

  4. Love all three of your ornaments is prettier than the next! And what excitement for you and your family. I know how happy you must be. RJ

  5. These are so sweet!
    Woo hoo! Excitement in the air! We will keep on praying. I hope you four have lots of fun together.❤️
