Giveaway Reminder & New Start

Don't forget to enter my Thankfulness giveaway today.  I will be pulling a winner tomorrow.  I have really enjoyed reading everyone's comments.  Good luck!

While watching the Georgia vs. Auburn game this afternoon, I started an ornament from this year's JCS Ornament issue.  I'm not going to say which one as I think it's going to end up as a Christmas gift. 

I have to say there were not a lot of ornaments that caught my eye this year and made me excited to stitch them and that's too bad.  It feels like there is a lot of repetition in many of the designs; as if the designers are just quickly designing anything or using parts of something they've already designed to turn into ornaments without trying to create something really special.  Maybe it's just that there's only so much you can do for a holiday themed ornament and much of it's already been done.

I have to admit that I haven't bought this year's issue, so I can't say anything about it. And I don't know, if I will ever buy it. I'm not really an ornament stitcher and I just used to stitch them for the occasional exchange. And now that I'm not doing any more exchanges the JCS copies that I still have provide a big variety of ornaments - just in case I change my mind, lol. But you are certainly right that there's just a limited number of themes that can be used for Christmas ornaments.
