These are the Christmas Ornaments I stitched for my great nieces and great-nephew for this year. It is 'Tis the Season, from the JCS 2014 Ornament preview issue, I believe. Designed by Theresa Curry and Brian Stugelmayer of Needle Bling Designs. I used the called for fabric and threads for the most part. Just used what I had in my stash. Each one is a little different, some intended and some not! I hope they like them.

It looked in focus when I took the snap!
Carol let me know she received my exchange piece for HoE. It's Daffycat's reindeer and tree design stitched on natural opalescent with gold threads. I used DMC to stitch the design. I wish I could remember the name of the trim I used.

O'Connell is known in Ireland as "The Liberator" or "The Great Emancipator" for his success in achieving Catholic Emancipation. I'm afraid I don't remember all our guide told us about O'Connell. He is an important statesman in Catholic Ireland.

The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher are located at the southwestern edge of the Burin region in County Clare, Ireland. They rise 390 ft above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag's Head, and reach their maximum height of 702 feet. The tower is a round stone tower near the midpoint of the cliffs built in 1835 by Sir Cornelius O'Brien. From the cliffs and from atop the tower, you can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks and Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north in County Galway, and Loop Head to the south.
