Ornaments make for a friend

I made these 4 ornaments for a friend of mine. My husband did the stitching some time ago because I still had trouble with my tennis elbow (its much better now) and then we had to wait for the buttons to arrive.

Cardinal Winter

I am very behind with my stitching on these ornaments but I have recently finished Cardinal Winter.  It is stitched on 28ct mushroom evenweave using the recommended DMC threads.  It is finished, badly, as a flat ornament.  I am going to be starting Bringing Home the Tree next.

Until next time, happy stitching

Introducing myself

Hi everyone,

I thought that I would say hello and introduce myself.  My name is Kaye and I have been stitching off and on for many years but have just got back into it in a big way this year and also into blogging in a big way.  My blog is

I would like to thank Vonna for allowing me to join this blog.  I have only fairly recently discovered Little House Needleworks and I just love their designs, especially their Christmas Ornaments.  I have yet to start stitching one as I am waiting for my LNS to get the Weekes Dye Works threads in for me.  But, I can show  you pics of the ornies I plan to stitch, here they are:

LHN "Red" House in Winter

I loved the original colors for this design with the red house but since my Christmas decorating is done in shades of blue I wanted this to match. I stitched this on the recommended 30 count Northern Cross linen. I used all the recommended DMC colors except changed the red to CC Wavy Navy and the white (except for the snow) to GAST Old Blue Paint.

Winter Sheep

I stitched up Winter Sheep and used Diane's recommendation on the pattern to switch the reds to blue.  I love how it turned out and it will match my Christmas colors of shades of blue.

Snowy Pines

I finally got around to finishing up Snowy Pines and just love how it turned out!  I'm stitching these ornaments slowly but surely!  HA!!

Cardinal Winter

my first 2011 LHN ornament finish

"Cardinal Winter"

Cardinals Winter

I just finished this last night.

I changed out the colors to match the fabric I will use to back it a little better. For the border, I used something from a GAST loose threads pack (I think it's Cornflower) and the bunnies are CC Bunny Honey, to match our bunnies' winter coats. I changed the cardinal's color to 498 to match the cooler palette a little better. It's stitched on Charles Craft's sparkly aida.

Very fun stitch!
