Free Christmas charts.

This list may help you find some free charts for stitching Christmas ornaments. (Some may be a bit big for ornaments.)

Images of most of them can be seen on,

http://pinterest.com/pinwheelpond/complimentary-christmas-cross-stitch-patterns/

(Click on any photo to see a larger image. A link to the original page will be above the photo.) I wish I had the time to check this list regularly to eliminate the frustration of dead links. You will do me, and fellow stitchers, a huge favour if you will let me know, via the comments box below, if you find any dead links.
