Stitch people holiday ornaments for 2022
If you don't follow me over on my Instagram account, you might not know that completing my orders for holiday ornaments this year was a little tougher than I originally anticipated. Why's that you might ask? Well as I spoke about in both my September wrap-up and Oct/Nov wrap-up posts, I underwent two surgeries on my foot after I broke my toe (one could say "broke" is not a strong enough word - it was more like I shattered the bone..!) back on Halloween 2021. Unfortunately, healing from the surgeries -only one of which was planned. The second one was a sugical correction- has been really slow and difficult.
So obviously, I've had to put a bit more focus on helping my body heal and repair than I originally anticipated when I originally opened spots to receive ornament orders.
This did mean that I was feeling the pressure during November, but looking back I wouldn't have changed it — I would still have wanted to stitch all of these ornaments. I truly do love being able to lay them all out and see all the hard work together!
Peep the finished results
Let me know what you think of the finished 10 pieces! I've included the clips of them all (in no particular order!) as well as some close-up images of parts I am particularly pleased with - both characters and decor - below the video.
Here's a selection of 12 characters with awesome features, such as an adorable outfit, awesomely stitched hair or cute additions!
Gorgeous decor elements
I don't ever intend to pick favourites when it comes to my pieces (ornaments or regular pieces!) but I inadvertently find myself drawn to certain elements for whatever reason. So here are some tiny parts that I adore.
It's a little surreal to post so many hours of design, stitching, and finger pricks worth of work in a simple blog post or a handful of social media posts, but here we are. And I can only hope to be able to do the same, this time next year..!
I would love to know if you have a favourite ornament or even a favourite, specific part of one! Leave me a comment below with what you think/like.
Oh no, I missed out!..?
If you have a severe case of FOMO, don't fret!
I am always open to discussing ornaments "off-season" if you are looking to get a belated one stitched. Last year, I opened up a limited few spaces for Christmas ornaments after receiving a few inquiries for them. I won't be blanet-opening spaces like last time, but I am more than happy to discuss your needs and open spaces one-at-a-time as needed, if needed. All you need to do is get in touch and we can chat!
