2021 Holiday Countdown: 31 Days of Stitched Ornaments

To bring some holiday cheer and stitching inspiration to your life we will be posting a photo of a stitched ornament every day this month! The photos will be posted here and also on our Facebook and Instagram. Make sure to follow us there!

These beautiful ornaments have all been sent by EGA members. While many of these ornaments are original pieces and the chart for them may not be available, we encourage you to visit our Free Projects page for some beautiful free patterns and our EGA Stitch-a-long, where we stitch a new project on Facebook every month.

The ornament at the top of the page was stitched by member Kathleen Kellar from our York White Rose Chapter and features the Reindeer ornament design by Mary Waldsmith from our Greater Dallas Chapter, available as a free download in our Free Projects page.

About the ornaments for day 14: These three ornaments were finished by member Phebe Cheaney, but stitched by member Terrie (Harriet) Cheaney who passed away at age 99 in November of 2020. Her daughters Phebe and Paula follow her stitching example as members of EGA. Here’s a little more from them: “Mother was an EGA member practically since its founding. She was a member of the Columbus, Ohio chapter and then the chapter nearest to Cupertino, CA from 1978-1990. In 1990, she returned to Columbus and continued as a member there. She was an avid needle worker all her life and these pieces were found when my sisters and I were clearing out her things. She took classes, attended seminars (both local and national), participated in many group projects, explored techniques on her own, and set an example for two of her daughters who are stitchers (and EGA members) themselves. I don’t know when she did these, but it was likely in the later part of her life-they were on top!”

Come back to this post every day through December 31st to see beautiful ornaments stitched by our members. Check our Free Projects page for some ornament patterns you can stitch at home!
