Ornament Frenzy!

Hello my dear friends and readers!
I've had a bit of an ornament stitching and finishing frenzy and I thought I'd swing in to show them to you. I really do love how they turned out and I would highly recommend you stitching these up for yourself! You'll get hooked and if you do don't forget to join our Little House Ornaments Stitch Along, I host (link in the sidebar).

"Snowy Pines"
Designed by: Little House Needleworks
stitched 4/23/10

"Winter Sheep"
designed by: Little House Needleworks
stitched: 4/24/10

"Red House in Winter"
designed by: Little House Needleworks
stitched: 4/26/10

All are stitched on 40 ct. unknown linen that I got in a grab bag. I wish I knew where it came from and what color it is because I love it! Too bad, that it is gone now :o( I have 6 ornaments stitched and finished in the Monthly Ornament Series, and I'm all caught up on the released ornaments to date. 6 more ornaments will be released...so that will equal one thing = a beautiful tree in my home next year..."All Dolled Up!" with Diane's pretty ornaments!

That's all I have for you today....
There is lots going on, just can't get into all of it at the moment....so in the meantime, keep your "hands to work and hearts to God"!
Love and Hugs,
Vonna
