Merry Making Mini Ornaments
Heart in Hand has sent three small card charts to make a trio of 2 x 3 inch Christmas ornaments. Simple stitching and finishing, sometimes these easy things are some of the cutest quick gifts you can make! Each design is stitched with hand-dyed or DMC floss (not much of any of them!) and dotted with a few glass seed beads, which are included with the chart.

Choose a schnibble of Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed linen called for or use the cover pic to help you find something you already have in your stash. These three are all backed using only one cut of our Weeks wool (that schnigglet cut will finish a total of 4 ornaments.).

Birds in the Hand Christmas
A little companion to Cecelia's Thanksgiving and Halloween small designs, this finishes approx 4 x 4 when stitched on 28ct. A medley of alphabet letters and a couple of bitty motifs, you could stitch parts of these and finish them just like the Making Minis if you want, they'd make cute little square block stand-ups too.

Charted for DMC or hand-dyeds, a few glass seed beads are included.



All is Calm from Heart in Hand - click for more All is Calm
This IS a calm little design!  Actually not Christmassy at all... it is offered as a complete kit of 30ct hand-dyed Weeks Linen, Gentle Art and Weeks threads, and a trio of small green and white buttons.

It finishes just 3 x 3, and features a small row of Rhodes Stitches below the buttons, and a row of Herringbone stitches below the trees.  Super simple, cute for a fob or small ornament.

Cecelia Turner has sent a couple of designs that are the beginnings of a new collection of small seasonals. *Birds in Hand*... we begin with Halloween and Thanksgiving.
