Personalized Cooperstown ornaments

John and Linda at the Cooperstown Bed & Breakfast sent our boys home with snacks for the 9 hour drive & some fun little gifts. I was excited about these two cross-stitched ornaments. I thought it would be fun to stitch dates on the backs as a keepsake of their trip. πŸ™‚

Downloaded a free alphabet pattern & mapped it first on graph paper. My knots had to show since the pillow was already completed, but I think it kinda adds to their charm… πŸ™‚

Now, each boy will have their own to take with them someday. LOVE gifts like that! πŸ™‚

        Just finished my second cup of coffee and I should get off the laptop and get busy… : O
        A bit of fog for us today and still snow on the ground. Hubby is home tomorrow. If I get my chores caught up we can sit and enjoy the day together. πŸ˜€
        Have a great week. It is good to see you again.
