Thinking about Christmas stitching

Is there something Christmas-y or Wintery that you like to stitch each year?  Like it wouldn't feel like the holidays unless you stitched a particular thing?

Some of us get silly for Santa.  Crazy for candy canes.  Excited for elves.  Rowdy for reindeer.  Apoplectic for angels.  (Whoa.  Sorry. That was a stretch.)

Tell me about it.  Leave a comment and I'll post a recap of your responses later this week.

  1. My favorite thing is probably Santas. Especially if they have gifts and/or reindeer. Or Santa with children on lap.

    A close second...horse/sleigh scenes

  2. I'm stitching nothing this year for Christmas or the holidays. Nothing draws my attention. I'm slowly plugging away on the Jonah project that I started a couple of weeks ago and have made very little progress on.

  3. Not any particular theme, but I'm having a lot of fun stitching ornaments this year.

  4. ever since I was 12, I have stitched a santa for my grandmother. when she passed away in 2005, I kept stitching them, at least once a year, for her. that's why my blog is named santa stitches.

  5. No particular theme, but every year, I make an ornament for my parents, and now I have a niece, one for her too.

    If I make ornaments for myself, I seem to like ones with words...

    My dad with his white hair and beard looks like Santa, I've no real need to stitch them :o)

  6. I love to stitch santas. I have three kids & my older daughter gets snowmen ornaments, my son gets santa ornaments, and my younger daughter gets angel ornaments. I also stitch ornaments for my nieces, a SIL, and a couple friends.

  7. What a nice blog to pop into. I particularly like to knit tiny mittens from one of the old BHG magazines, and envelopes saying Merry Christmas and put a stitched stamp related to the recipient. Santa, birds,Snowmen, Thimbles etc.
    Be always in stitches

  8. I'm a new stitcher so this is my first holiday season stitching. I'm working on something that is not holiday themed. I have a Halloween project that should come in this week. I'm so slow I'll probably always be an off season stitcher and quilter.

  9. I do stitch those Sandy Cozzolino santas, but not seasonally. I stitch them when I travel, or if I feel like it. I'm not a seasonal stitcher.

  10. I'm not so much a seasonal stitcher. I stitch designs when the mood hits. As far as Christmas designs, I don' really have any one favorite. I like variety - it's the spice of life!

  11. Cardinals! We have them here year round of course but for some reason they just scream Christmas to me.

  12. Snowmen!! The more frosty fellows, the better! I LOVE snowmen!

  13. Santas get my vote, Lee! But I also like some snowmen (not the cutesy ones...more the Prairie Schooler type). I like elves, too, and Christmas scenes of houses, and... Oh let's face it, I like stitching just about anything Christmas!

  14. I'm not that organized, but this is the time of year that I like to stitch the holiday greens - pine trees, Christmas trees, wreaths, etc.

  15. I'm not the Christmas-y type but I like to stitch Santas. I don't like the winter but I love to stitch winter-y scenes with snow covered trees and houses and the typical winter birds. Weird, isn't it? Lol.
