October Ornament and More 2009 Ornament Finishing

Friday I got the accessory kit I ordered for the Victoria Sampler Gingerbread Scissor Keep published in the 2009 JCS Ornament magazine.  I managed to stitch and finish it up over the weekend!  I used the template provided in the magazine for the final shape of it, but just finished as an ornament and not as a scissor keep.  On this one, I really wanted to join the cording at the base, but couldn’t figure out how to do it and have it look nice, so this ornament ended up with a tassle:

While I had my finishing supplies out, I decided to finish one more ornament that I’d stitched earlier in the year:

So… I’m approaching the end of my 2009 Ornament Project.  I have two more ornaments to stitch and finish, then one last stitched ornament that needs to be finished up!

  1. Judy Odell’s site has a tutorial for joining the cording. That’s the only one I know of… and I’ve never managed a join myself either.

    Doesn’t matter, both your ornies look great!
