Christmas gifts

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I can now share the Christmas gifts that I made.
Those Prairie Schooler Santas that I was stitching all summer became these layered ornaments. This was given to my daughter.
My son received the skiing Santa. He misses skiing now that he is in CA and there has been a decided lack of snow in the mountains. 
I followed Vonna's tutorial at the Twisted Stitcher

I received some crafty gifts myself this year.
I requested the corder. I could have used it when making the Santas above.
The two cross-stitch kits were surprises. Isn't that puppy adorable and the Santa is beautiful. I so look forward to making these.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today.  Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to. I'm not sure whether or not I will spend time stitching as we have a houseful of guests and some ice-skating to do.

Thanks for stopping by!
