God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

I Think I've Found A Solution

After spending part of the morning upstairs attempting a few more finishes, I've decided that this is the best I'm going to be able to do for my cross stitch ornament tree.

Bwahahahahaha!! I could add some ornaments! That reminds me of the PS autumn piece I just folded and laid in a frame that I found the other day. I shoved in the backing piece and set it up on my dresser. : ) Whatever works!!! LOL!!

Well at least you have finishes. If it was my tree it would have blank bits of fabric and some skeins of thread dangling.

It's a good job I wasn't drinking when I saw this!!!

Have you tried a quilters rule and cutting mat? You do such great needlework, I have confidence in you that you can do this!

I know how you feel ~ I have a pile that needs to be finished. You can do it. Try to do one each day. They will be finished in no time.
