Two ornaments finished and ready for the tree

Last week I showed you what I was up to and now I thought I'd show you the finished products. Ms. R. always has me make 3 ornaments for her childrens Christmas trees and we get together and decide on a pattern for each. This first one is for the girl who collects snowmen. The JOY is because she just gratuated from college....and of course Merry Christmas says the rest. I found a little red bird button and two holly leaf buttons to set it off. I think it turned out pretty cute and I hope she likes it.
This second one is for the girl who collects angels. Yes I know Just Nan doesn't call this one an angel but last year I stitched one of the butterfly angels from JN and she really liked it. This one is called Splendora and splendid she is. You can't tell from the picture, but the fur has been stitched with wool and then brushed to give her a "furry" look and her wings are stitched with silks....and we mustn't forget about the butterfly charm she is carrying. I love this design and it's a good thing because I think I've stitched it about 6 times so far. LOL
Hope you enjoyed seeing what will be hanging on two Christmas trees this coming season.
As always, Barbara

Those are the colors in the Bear ornament. I know they will love them.

Both ornaments are beautiful, Barbara, but that little bear is truly special! I love his furry look and sweet face--what a beautiful piece :)
