Christmas Ornaments & Secret Santa 2012

Firendly Stitchers Group Ornament Exchange

I received this beauty from Judy together with some threads and needles ~ thanks Judy.
I'd love to show you the ornament that I sent to Judy, however I forgot to take any pictures!  It was the LHN design from the 2012 ornament edition of JCS, you know, the one with the blue house ~ sorry I can't remember the design name & the magazine has clearly hibernated as I can't find it to look it up.
Needlecraft Haven Group Ornament Exchange

Another gorgeous ornament received ~ this one from Mary who also send a skein of thread and a cute present charm ~ thank you Mary.

This one is Christmas Eve by Pickle Barrel Designs from the JCS Ornament Edition 2012 ~ stitched for Christine on 32ct Barely Bronzed evenweave from Sparklies with the recommended threads.  The fabric in the background is on the reverse of the ornament.
