Classic Ornaments 

Nicky Leeman of Country Cottage Needleworks created a great new monthly series of ornaments. Started in August 2014 it will wrap up in July 2015 - in time to display them all on your 2015 Christmas tree!

Each ornament is stitched on a 32 count linen and are approximately 3" to 4" in size when stitched.

Ornament design names are:

Angels
Dear Santa
Snow Love
Christmas Cookies
Christmas Cheer!
Let Us Adore Him
By the Chimney
Holly Jolly
Christmas Birdhouse
Merry Merry!
Fa La La
Be Merry

The Classic Ornaments series uses Classic Colorworks, DMC, Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works as well as a Just Another Button Company button. The button is optional, but is sized for stitching on 32 count fabric, although it should also work on 28 count. The thread and button list for the series is as follows:
  • Classic Colorworks Floss - Beansprout, Cherry Tomato, Chopped Chives, Hazelnut, Ladybug, Lemon Grass (2), Licorice Red, Ribbon Red
  • DMC Floss - 304, 318, 321, 349, 420, 433, 434, 435, 469, 470, 498, 603, 613, 642, 722, 728, 743, 744, 754, 817, 839, 841, 842, 869, 3031, 3347, 3371, White
  • Sampler Threads - Baby Spinach, Geranium, Picnic Basket
  • Weeks Dye Works Floss - Cocoa, Grape Vine,  Ivy, Lucky, Pecan, White Lighting
  • JABCO buttons - 4638.t, 3462.m, 3506.s, nh1067.s, 3313, 1113.t, nh1066.s, 3314.m, nh1025.t, 4442.t, 2262.t, 4447.t

32 count fabrics used are:

  • Fabric Flair - Natural w/Silver Sparkles (2)
  • Lakeside Linens - Lentil (1), Light Examplar (2), Patina (2)
  • Wichelt - Lambswool (4)
  • Zweigart - Belfast Petit Point Raw/White Dots (1)
A Stitcher's Eighth will provide 6 pieces ~6x6.5 or 4 pieces ~9x6.5 - so plenty for your ornaments. If you decide to frame the designs, you will only get 2 pieces big enough for framing (9x9). You could always do them on one single type of fabric or only on 2 or 3 of them for a more uniform look.

You can sign up for the charts, linen, thread and/or button as you require.
We'll send each fabric with the first month it's used in, unless you ask us to send them at the beginning of the series. For DMC floss colors, if a color is used in a previous design we don't include it in the list for the next time it is called for.
