Heir­loom stitches

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Yourletters -

I thought I would share with you the Christ­mas or­na­ments I made for each of my grand­chil­dren in 2017. Ev­ery year, I stitch an or­na­ment for each of them in the hope that one day, when they have homes of their own, they will al­ways trea­sure and hang these or­na­ments on their trees in mem­ory of their nanna. Many years ago on a cross stitch fo­rum I read about ladies who stitched or­na­ments for their grand­chil­dren and thought this was a great idea, so I started do­ing the same. I found these rein­deer in one of your mag­a­zines and made them my project for Christ­mas 2017. As I write this, I’m pre­par­ing their or­na­ments for Christ­mas 2018! Ali­son says: What a bril­liant tra­di­tion to have started, De­lene – your grand­chil­dren are very lucky to have such a tal­ented grand­mother. I love the idea of them hav­ing a lit­tle set of or­na­ments ready for when they start dec­o­rat­ing their own trees! I also love how you’ve made these up – they look fab.
