Christmas stitching (yes, still)

I thought starting at the beginning of November would be more than enough time to make the boys their Christmas ornaments. WRONG. I have only just finished the stitching on Caleb's. Yes, yes i know the writing isn't centred but i always just wing it with these, i figure it adds to the handmade charm ;-) So here's the front and the back. Maybe i can get it made into an ornament in time for his birthday next week. 

DH thought i was mean calling him 'wild' but he is can be and exhibited some especially 'wild' behaviour through December so it's a memory lol


The front of Aaron's is complete, I just need to do the back now.


Ive signed up for this WIPocalypse thing which is just for fun really. I have sooooo many pieces lying unfinished so im going to pick some that i want to finish or at least make some progress on this year and make a list.

Both are sweet memories...you will remember each year when you hang on your tree when you see it and read the back :) I remember each year myself as I hang my children's that I stitched from all the Christmases past....

Love the ornaments! Don't feel too bad about still stitching the ornaments for 2012, I still haven't finished stitching the ones for my children either. It's the thought that counts and not how long it takes.

Lovely ornaments. I wouldn't worry about only just finishing them, I didn't finish stitching Rosie's 2011 ornament till Aug 2012!

These are both so sweet! I love the back of Caleb's ornament. I know you'll get them completed in time. There's no magic date for completion as far as I'm concerned.

Baby's Christmas Stockings are wonderful keepsakes that are certain to grace one's holiday decor year after year. Although there are wonderful options available for purchase you can make the stocking even more special by crafting it yourself.
