x-stitch ornies

Between Canadian and American Football there are lots of games being televised just now.  Thursday was a bonus with NFL games broadcast for Thanksgiving.  This Sunday is the Grey Cup, which is the final football game of the season for Canada .... and it's the 100th Grey Cup Game!
As I've mentioned before, during football games is when I do most of my stitching and I've got more stitching lined up for the weekend.  These two worked up quite quickly, in fact I think it took me as long to finish them as to stitch them .... alas, I still struggle with my finishes.  Valma has finished some of her x-stitch designs as candle mats and you can see them here.
I think it's a great idea.  

 I like the simplicity of this one.  It was a design from 

There are crystal beads gracing this one although they are difficult to see in the photo.  This was a design from here.

I can't believe how quickly you turn these put! You must stitch like a demon!

Nice ornaments! Your finishing is fine, really! I think we are always more impressed with other's finishes than our own in general... We're too hard on ourselves :D This said, Valma's finishes are always fantastic. Have a lovely weekend full of little xxxx, Mii.

Hi Kate, your stitching is beautiful.. I do a lot of stitching in front of the telly too, but not while watching football!! I missed the gene that allows me to enjoy that!!!!
