My House...

Greetings to all my friends and stitching buddies!
I *eeked out* another finish this past weekend and just finished it into final form this morning. May I present:

"My House"
designed by: Little House Needleworks ~ Diane Williams
from the "Hometown Holidays" series
copyright 2013
stitched on 35 ct. Straw Linen by Weeks Dye Works
with Crescent Colours and DMC


My House
 
My House 1
 
My House 2
 
I decided...
to stitch this series (as they come out) on a higher stitch count and finish them as ornaments. When picking which linen count and color to use, I decided to go with Weeks "Straw", as it is dark enough that any light colors will show up well and since this is a holiday series...I figure there will be plenty of snow showing up in future designs! Since this was a smaller count design - I went with 35 ct. If there are larger designs I can go with 40 count linen and Weeks Linen provides a perfect color palette to switch between counts.
 
The Pfeiffer Kiddos...
are back in school today after enjoying their Spring Break. Our routine and schedule returns to normal, with a few added practices to add into Mom's daily pick-up routine as the Pfeiffer boys have added a couple of after school activities that begin today. Back to the grind....it really is a good thing - keeps us all on track and on target :)
 
Until next time...
whenever that may be, I'll be keeping my hands to work and my heart to God, just like always.
 
Hugs in stitches,
Vonna xxx

  5. Great finish, as always! Your thought process is going to get that tree filled quicker; right? I'm on an auto-delivery, but waiting for the first one to come in. You get so much done around your work AND your family's extra curricular chauffeur activities!
