Day 17...

25 Days

Day 17...
is here...and I need a break on long lengthy posts and you need to catch up :)

Today I'm sharing my "Dear Santa" ornament by 
Country Cottage Needleworks
Classic Collection of ornaments

CCN Dear Santa
I truly love these designs...

That's Day 17!

Until tomorrow....
I'll be keeping my hands to work..
my heart to God..
while treating my neighbor with kindness and respect, 
and trying to be the best me I can be.
It's hard, isn't it?
I may stumble and I may fall, but I pick myself up and I remember:
To thine own self be true...
I want to BE the change I want to SEE.
Join me!

Merry Christmas,
Vonna xxxx


  1. Lovely stitching...short but sweet....have a wonderful day

  2. Good Morning Vonna! Love the ornament!

  3. I love this ornament, had to go and order the pattern, oh how I wish there was a brick and mortar store close to me that sold patterns and thread and more. Thank you Vonna for all these wonderful posts, Merry Christmas to all!! Cathy

  4. so beautiful..
    thank you
    big hugs x

  5. Beautiful stitching and finishing Vonna - it's fun to see these finishes "in person" instead of on the front of the chart!

  6. I love your ornaments; they are always finished so pretty.
    I like how your staircase is decorated, so cute with the elf among the ornaments.
    Happy Day #'s going by so fast.

  7. Is that an older elf or the newer elf on the shelf? I have an older (like the whirly-gig) elf that looks like that (maybe a little more worn). Nice display!


  8. What an adorable ornament and I really like how you finished it!

  9. What a cute ornament! I especially love the green bow. Get some rest, take a nap!

  10. Dear Vonna, that is a lovely ornament. Your finishing is spectacular!

  11. Beautiful stitching on this and your previous ornament. Thank you for the advice on the stitching stand. I will have to look at investing in another one next year I think.

  12. What a cute ornament and your finishing is always just wonderful!!!

  13. I love the finish on your Dear Santa ornie. Nice job!

  14. What an adorable ornament. I guess it is going to have to go on my wish list.

  15. lol! Thanks for the break for you and for me! I've caught up now. :D Love the ornie!

  16. No wonder that you needed a break after the one from the day before, lol. And so great to see such a lovely ornie.
