The Patriotic Tree and a First Ornament

Several years ago when my son entered the military , I decided to do a small tree decorated with patriotic ornaments. The years when we go away for the holidays, this is the only tree I put up. Last summer I made some little cross stitch designs. I thought I would use them in some way for the 4th of July. There were a few I didn't use so I got the idea that I would make them into ornaments for the patriotic tree. I see all the lovely ornaments on other cross stitch blogs. I have done lots of cross stitch but haven't made ornaments. I had some great fabric so I decided to give it a try. While it doesn't compare with some ornaments I have seen, it suits the little tree just fine. I also took photos of some of the other ornaments. Have a great holiday-it's getting very close!
