One of the best things about stitch nights at Inspired Needle is show and tell. All of the pictures on this post are of Christmas ornaments that my friend, Karin, and her friend, Katrina made last year. They decided that they would each stitch an ornament a month and make two of each ornament. They would exchange with each other and have a total of 24 ornaments.
Here are pictures of some of them. Karin and Katrina are master stitchers. Every ornament was breathtaking!!!!
Every ornament was finished meticulously and cleverly by Artistic Needle. I am going to be sending a few ornaments there this year!
These four darling ornaments were stitched by Katrina. Karin said it was a Birds of a Feather pattern that is out of print so don't get excited like I was.....but I am going to keep an eye out just in case I see it somewhere.
See what I mean? One is cuter than the next!
I know the ornament above was from the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue 2009.
Wasn't that fun???? I am inspired! Luckily for me, my needlwork shop is named Inspired Needle!!!
That brings me to my question. For our anniversary my dear husband bought me a gift certificate to Inspired Needle. I have managed to not spend it yet. I have so many wonderful patterns in my stash. Should I use the gift certificate to kit up some of those patterns OR should I wait until market and new patterns come out and then go crazy in that department???? What would you do?
