TWIC: Finishing the Christmas Ornaments

With Christmas plans developing apace, it’s been quite nice to sit in my corner and stitch some festive ornaments.

I’ve completed Popcorn the Bear, and this robin, which goes with a holly one I did last month, and I decided to skip the French knots and get out the sparkly fake gemstones from my card-making supplies. So now there’s a little sparkle for when I hang these up.

I also realised why I see so many people using pokey-tools to pick the gems up: the red ones on the robin weren’t too bad, but I ended up reaching for my needle to place the smaller clear ones on the other two.

Now they just need a Christmas tree, in the case of the robin and the holly, and a hook, for Popcorn, and other Christmas decorations up so they don’t look out of place.
