Christmas Catch Up: cross stitch ornaments

I was involved in a Secret Santa gift exchange with some of my T21 moms over the holidays.  Along with a purchased gift, I made these little cross stitch ornaments for an amazing mom.  She mentioned her favorite colors were lavender and green and I remembered these ornaments from a Cross Stitcher magazine.  So I decided to make a few of them for her tree. 

I ended up making four different ornaments backing each with felt and finishing off with a button and some ribbon to hang it. 

The colors really are a nice combination.  She liked them too so that's always good.  I still get so nervous when sending something handmade to someone.  I just never know if they will like it or not.  That should catch me up for Christmas stitches!  I didn't make as many things this year as I usually do.  Still struggling with finding enough time. It's something I'm working on this year.
