On a less grumpy note, I thought I'd post a couple of the few needlework ornaments I have on my Christmas trees. I have a couple my grandma made several decades ago; two Christmas cats stitched by a co-worker many years ago for me; and two I made myself. It seems that cross stitch bloggers I've been reading have many, many more than that, but I plan to add to my collection over time too. :)
Here are the two I made, from Dimensions Wire Whimsy kits:

I also did a Wire Whimsy Christmas angel for my parents back when I stitched the reindeer, and one of the cross stitched cats the friend made is a Wire Whimsy too. They're really cute, but the kits only seem to be available on eBay and other resale venues, so I guess they're not being made anymore.
Luckily I found another unstitched kit (a flying Santa) in my basket o' cross stitch stuff, so I have another one to stitch yet.
Beneath the reindeer you can catch a glimpse of one of my grandma's ornaments:
It's a little four-sided ornament with a candle stitched on it in needlepoint.
