A Mitten Ornament

I have been so inspired by seeing many festive Christmas ornaments on other sites, that I decided to stitch one also. Here is a small mitten ornament that I made this week from a 1999 Cross Stitch & Needlework supplement to the Christmas issue. There are four different ones, and I hope to make them all some day. I really love small mitten ornaments.

I need to purchase some fleece and some backing material before I can complete the finishing, but I plan to get this done this weekend, so hopefully I will have another photo of a finished ornament up soon.

Also, I found in my wanderings around the web something I would really like to share. I ran across this adorable realisation of a cute Christmas pattern in the magazine Mains and Merveilles #63. The original pattern in the magazine is for an apron, but I really like this adaptation better. You can go and make a short tour of Les Chalet des Perelles to see more of this project and many others.

Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog, and for your wonderful comments!

You have some great projects going :) I have been downloading all of those Petite Maison charts, but haven't started any yet. Your HAED is looking great, too!

The mitten is just adorable.

Dang that's a cute mitten! And thanks for the heads up on the cool finishing idea. I usually get an ornie stitched and then stare at it for months because all creativity leaves me when it comes to finishing! It's not helped at all by my glue phobia.

That mitten is adorable! I'm going to have to look it up now because I don't remember it ;o)
