Christmas Mittens
Lindy Jane Designs
JCS Nov/Dec 1986 ornament issue
Perforated paper 14ct tan

Here is my next ornament made. I used perforated paper with this one and it comes with another matching mitten. I'm just not done with that one yet. I'm really enjoying myself making these ornaments. I can't help but think about all the other cross stitchers from years past who also stitched this pattern. This one came from the JCS Nov/Dec ornament issue of 1986 . How many of you stitched this years ago or have had this handed down from family ornaments? Years ago I wouldn't have bothered stitching these older "out of style patterns" lol but its funny how one's tastes change over the years. If you have stitched this one or have it in your possession I would love to hear stories about it. Since ordering that JCS DVD of all the issues from 2001-2010 plus all the ornament issues I've decided I want to try to get this other years of ornament issues. I have 86 and 87 but nothing past that until 2001-2010 ,2012, and 2013. I believe they started in 85. Does anyone know when the Halloween ones started.
