Have you seen...

"Think Big"
by Country Cottage Needleworks ~ Nikki Leeman
 
I stitched the model and finished it for Nikki.
Isn't it ADORABLE!?!?!
 

 


"Orchard Valley Quilting Bee"
 
by Little House Needleworks ~ Diane Williams
I stitched this model for Diane. It is a biggie! I started in June and finished in late September.
I stitched exclusively on it during those months. And I must say that I enjoyed each and every stitch. The finished product, as you can see, is simply cute as a button. I am proud to tell you that this very model now hangs proudly in my entry way and I am SO in love with it :)



 
 
 
and finally....
what about the NEW Little House Series...
 
"Hometown Holiday"
 
oh goodness....be still my heart! :) 

 
Have I sold any of you on these sweet designs?
 
 Well if I have and you plan on getting these patterns and stitching them, then let me tempt you further...I have set up two Stitch-a-Long blogs for commeraderie and fun! Easy, no rules, no deadline stitching. Blogs are limited to 100 authors so if you are serious about stitching and want to join in the fun, kindly send me a e-mail at: thetwistedstitcher@comcast.net

  1. Vonna,
    Both finishes are beautiful! I love your work. Recently I finished two ornaments and I used your tutorials. I love your tutorials as they are so easy to use.

    Thank you for keeping me inspired!

    I'm signing up to join the Hometown Holidays Blog. This sounds like a lot of fun!

    Hugs in Stitches!

  8. Gosh, I want them all! I'm already on the other two blogs you've set up, so I'm going to have to wait in these, but I sure don't want to.

    Beautiful stitching and finishing!

  9. As usual Vonna your stitching is beautiful and Diane has once again designed some wonderful charts! I can't wait for the hometown holidays.

    As a side note, you need to stitch that Nantucket Rose piece. It's gorgeous!

  15. Sorry about that. My comment accidentally published before I was finished. I was saying that I'm trying so hard to be good about stash additions but Diane and Nikki are making it very difficult for me.

  16. Tempting! Especially the Hometown Holiday! But I need to practice self-control, so I'll watch from the sidelines!

  17. Everything looks so pretty! I really love that carrot and bunny, though.

  18. Oh I so want to stitch that cute little Country Cottage bunny. It is interesting to see how Nikki is really developing her own design style over the years. CJ in OK

  23. Your wonderfully beautiful model stitching makes me love them all, but it is especially hard to resist the Hometown Holiday, for me!
    (Hope this isn't a duplicate comment.)

  24. Such pretty patterns and very beautifully finished. By the way, I used help from your finishing tutorials to finish the cottages and they came out great. Thanks :)

  25. Both your models are stunning. I saw Orchard Valley and I must confess I do covet it, but I am stitching purely from stash this year, so no new charts for me:(

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my! These models are so beautiful - I realise that I love cross stitching and need more time. Now I just have to order both of these as well! If it wasn't Lent I would covet Orchard Valley!Autumn is looming here, so more time for stitching!! Thank you for being an inspiration.

  27. Your models are beautiful done !! I orderd the two LHN patterns yesterday and the second sheep .... can't wait to start on these.

    Send you an email for taking part in the two new blogs !

  28. Wow Vonna!! You have been really busy! I love the two you have stitched, especially the quilting one.... I may have to do that one for SURE! :) How have you been? I hope all is well for you and your sweet family!

  29. Your finishing and model stitch are lovely but none of these designs really grabbed me this time. Maybe the next batch will instead :)

  31. Oh, I dearly love the quilting bee picture. It is stunning !! I know I'll be adding this to my stash. What an honor to stitch the model. Thanks for sharing your beautiful stitching and finishes.

  32. Vonna, I've changed where I'm blogging from and am trying to get used to posting comments from my new platform. Sorry if I comment more than once. :)
    You're work is beautiful! My daughter is started the journey of fostering to adopt and (hopefully) becoming a grandmother has made me very creative. I have a couple of projects in the works, one of them being a cross stitch for the baby's room. Excited!
