Ornament Finishing

Yesterday I went over to my friend Lorie's house to hang out. She has a really cool sewing room (rats! I should have taken pics of her sewing themed decor. I will next time because she has some really cool stuff!). I spent the afternoon stitching as she worked on finishing some ornaments I stitched. Talk about a good friend!!!! Above is a Prairie Schooler ornament from the on line magazine The Gift of Stitching. I think it was in the November 2009 issue.
Above is an ornament from The Sampler Girl. Below is the Moda fabric I used for the backing. Isn't it just so vintage and dear?

This little angel was a free chart from Ant of Sweden. The buttons are vintage from Lorie's stash and the fabric backing is also from her stash. Isn't it just adorable fabric????
Lastly, this little fireplace is a Prairie Schooler pattern. We did not stuff this one and it is very little and darling!!!
Thanks Lorie! These would have been floating around unfinished for the next five years if it wasn't for you!!!!!!

Laura these are so beautiful. I love this idea for using your cross stitch as an ornament. Sort of a teeny pillow. The fabric backings are perfect. Love this so much:)

I love these ornaments! They are really tempting me to get back into cross-stitch.

These are adorable! I don't sew -- therefore, I avoid things that need finishing. Too bad -- because sometimes they are wonderful!
