A couple cross stitch finishes.

I do manage a little bit of cross stitch and even finished a couple today. 

Part of the push was because one is for a baby shower gift. 

Once I finished one I continued on and finished a second one in the same manner. 

Both were ornaments from the Just Cross Stitch magazine. 

The first is from the August 2014 issue.  SamSarah's Snow Baby. 

I used more pink than the pattern called for. 

The second is Noel Pinkeep by Erica Michael's Design...from the 2008 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. 

Yikes...2008!  I stitched this earlier this year but kitted it up back in 2008.  I thought it would be a nice pinkeep like featured in the magazine but then today's finishing method felt like a good plan. 


They are both a little too large to be ornaments but will be cute decorations.

Finishing is still just not my thing.  These are cute, though. 


  1. Oh I think they look fantastic! Good for you. :)

  2. They look amazing! I love the colours. Very cool and refreshing.

  3. Both of these look great, I love the Noel design :)
    Best wishes.

  4. Pam, I have never seen anything but excellent finishing from you and these are no exception! So cute and fun colors, too! That snowman with the baby is a perfect idea for an ornament for a new mom--will have to remember that one...

  5. They are super cute finishes! Love them both! I have the 2008 issue I might have to go revisit it one of these days, I really like that Noel.
    Happy Stitching
