A Little Snow...

~ Greetings Friends! ~ 
and a warm welcome :)

I have a finish to share with you...
today! It is officially my 3rd and 4th finish of 2014, but I can't show you my 1st and 2nd finishes because they are models for Little House Needleworks. But you will get to see them in July and August and you will like them a lot! 

Without further ado...
may I present: 

"A Little Snow"

A "littles" kit designed by: Lizzie Kate
stitched with called for GAST and WDW as charted
on linen provided in kit

Lizzie Kate A Little Snow

I really adore this little pattern...
the colors just are yummy! Fresh, crisp, clean, just like the frosty mornings we've been having around here lately.

Isn't that...
font used for "SNOW" beautiful? I love that too, along with the charming houses all bedecked and bedazzled in snow along with their sweet little snowmen in the yards.Cute!

I also stitched...
the BONUS! pattern provided in the chart and it turned out sweet as can be, and will count as my FIRST ornament of the year ;)  It is stitched on 25 ct. Vintage Country Mocha over two threads to make it just wee bit larger, as its tiny.

And here is the completed projects from the kit "A Little Snow" together...
Just Darling! Don't you agree?!

Lizzie Kate A Little Snow Main Pattern and Bonus

I called my LNS...
and ordered the frame that goes with this sweet design and I'll make the ornament up at a later date and it will be featured in this years The 25 Days of The Twisted Stitcher!

My eyes...
are doing great! Yesterday I had a check-up and I am seeing 20/25!!! And I'm just two weeks out! I don't have to go back for 1 month and the doctor told me that my vision will continue to improve and that I likely will end up at least 20/20 and probably 20/15! SWEET!!! 

I've got my next project...
loaded up and rip, roaring to make a start on it. You'll have to wait to see what it is. :)

Until next time...
I'll be keeping my "hands to work and heart to God" just like always! Join me!
and speaking of "hands to work and heart to God" did you see my signature sampler? You can view it here on Diane's Blog or right here on LHN's website 
YEP, I'll be stitching this baby up too! ;)

Love in Stitches,
Vonna xxxx

  14. Lovely finishes Vonna and big congrats on your successful eye surgery. You will reap the benefits for many years. I checked into it years ago but it wasn't worth it at the age I was at and they told me I'd still probably have to have readers so I didn't do it. Best wishes for a great year ahead!

  37. I'm thrilled to hear that your vision is so good, Vonna--I'm sure it seems like a miracle to be able to see clearly without glasses after so many years! I don't think people who have good vision naturally realize what a hardship having bad eyes is! I'm so glad the procedure worked out well for you...

    And how exciting to see your blog "sign off" in LHN chart form--love it!

    I was never a huge LK design fan, but the newer charts are really catching my eye these days. This snow finish is adorable--totally agree about the font!

    Have a lovely weekend with your family :)

  48. What a sweet finish Vonna. I am a Winter baby so anything like this just calls to me.

    Love the new LHN. Another one for the wish list. Boy this Stitch from Stash is going to be hard!

  49. Hi Vonna,

    You look lovely without your glasses. Although I hasten to add that you were sweet with them as well.
    As a life long wearer of glasses I can fully appreciate the joy you must be experiencing now that you no
    longer have to wear them. Perhaps someday they'll have progressed to the point that everyone will be
    able to have a fairly simple procedure done that will correct any and all eye problems, no matter how
    severe.

    Snow really is a delightful little pattern. Lizzie Kate never fails to charm with their designs. And their
    colour choices are so fun!!!

    I can't see what you and LHN have been up to together!!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Cheers!
