One of My Stitching Projects

I am working on this tiny Christmas ornament.  It is a Glory Bee pattern from the 2012 Just CrossStitch Christmas Ornament issue.

I'm stitching it on 32 count linen over one thread using one strand of over-dyed floss.  If you are not a stitcher, that last sentence means absolutely nothing to you.   To give a real simple explanation, it means that the stitches in this piece are really small.  

I'm almost finished with it.  All I have left to do is the word 'you' which will be done with a Smyrna cross stitch (for my non-stitching friends a Smyrna cross is a specialty stitch) over two threads.  My plan is to make this into a little hanging ornament.  The finished size will be approx. 1.25"x1.75".


  1. So pretty! My 16 year old daughter has been cross stitching like crazy lately. She is making bookmarks.

  2. Looking good!! Can't wait to see it finished into an ornament.
