I mentioned on a previous post that Drema at Needlecraft Corner sells ornament fabric cuts, button packs, and most of the specialty floss needed for the ornaments in the 2008 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments Issue.
Well, after deciding what ornaments I wanted to stitch, I placed an order. I received it yesterday. Last year, after trying at two different needlework stores and scouring the internet to find all the JABC buttons I needed (and not finding them all), I decided it was less work to order them from Drema. More cost effective, too as she charges exact postage.
Ornaments are about the only thing I'll use buttons on. Ornaments aren't out on the tree for that long, and I store them carefully so the buttons are protected. And DH and I usually like to get one new ornament every year. Lately, I've taken to stitching them.
The holly button and fabric are for M Designs' Bluebird of Christmas Happiness. The pile of buttons, and the Estaz floss and GAST wool floss are all for the Snowden ornament by Jemini Designs. I'll enjoy using the wool floss. Hopefully the Estatz won't be too difficult; it shouldn't be as it is all couched on the ornament. I'll post a picture when I get it finished. Someday.
