Some Finished Chrismons and a New Mill Hill Project

I finished another set of Chrismons and here's what they look like

Grapes (yeah, I know they don't quite look like grapes in this color scheme), a symbol of Holy Communion

Manger, representing the manger that Jesus was laid in when he was born and symbolizing his humility

The Chi Ro, the first two letters of Christ, known in history because it's the sign that Constantine saw in a vision and was told "in this sign conquer" so he put it on the shields of his soldiers and he won and so Roman became Christian

The Crown of Life, referred to in Revelation

The Triangle, representing the Trinity (3 persons in one God = three sides to a triangle...)
The Triangle with a circle, representing the eternal Trinity because a circle has no beginning and no end
I'm working on the last page that I have now and I have some where the stitching is completed but it is not "all the way finished."  But I decided to take a bit of a break and do this cute Mill Hill kit

It has a bit of an indentity crisis because the front says "Holly Heart" but the instructions say "Candy Cane Heart."  It looks look a Holly Heart to me so I'm gonna stick with that.  Here are some progress pics:

When I was sorting the beads, I spilled some of the champagne and gold PETITE! beads on my white carpet. Not fun!


  1. Wow! You've made a lot of new ornaments! You should post a pic of your Christmas tree when it's all decorated!

    1. I plan to. We're restraining ourselves this year. Due to limited space, we're not putting up the tree until the day after Thanksgiving.

      Then I can bring out the Little People Nativity. The girls ought to love that!


I love to hear from my followers! Let me know what you have to say.
