Playing with a Purpose

Every year I make ornaments for my nieces and nephews and other children special to our family. I have played around with several ornament ideas for this years ornament, but nothing really excited me, until today ...

I started with a square of fabric, about 4 1/2" in size, on a piece of batting. I did a quick zig-zag stitch around the edges just to baste the two layers together. Then I got out some of my variegated DMC floss.

I thought it might be nice to try stitching a word.

Now I am stitching whatever pops into my head.

When I'm done stitching, I plan to back this with a Christmas print, whipstitch around the edges, and attach a hanging loop.
