Worktable Wednesday- A Prairie Schooler Christmas Eve

Hello crafty friends! It’s getting rather late in the day already, but I didn’t want to let Worktable Wednesday slip by without sharing a peek at what I’ve been working on these past couple of weeks.

This month is Jolly July in the cross-stitch and needlework community. Just like traditional Christmas in July, this is the time to get a jump start on some of those holiday projects you’d like to tackle for the year. Whether you are interested in working on some Christmas ornaments, or getting a head start on making holiday gifts, Jolly July is a great incentive to get yourself going.

For my first Jolly July project, I made this trio of cross-stitched ornaments from the Prairie Schooler Christmas Eve chart. I absolutely adore Prairie Schooler, and these are a super quick stitch at only a little over 2″ square.

I did a flat finish on them, backed with some favorite Eclectic Elements fabric and topped with ribbons and trim.

I’m close to a dozen finishes for the year already. I guess I’m hooked!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The supplies I’ve used are linked and/or listed below:

  1. Very sweet! I didn’t know it was a thing, but I was working on xmas ornaments and decorations. Glad to know I’m on schedule! šŸ™‚

  2. I love the ornaments. Did you know Prairie Schooler is out of business?
    Iā€™m going to keep searching.

    • Thanks, Debbie! Yes, I know Prairie Schooler is out of business, but she sold the rights to her charts and they are being reprinted. You can get most of the charts at any of the online stores. The reprints are quite readily available, actually. Happy stitching!
