He's A Flake

Another cute Little House Needlework ornament finish.

   Snowmen are one of my favourite subjects to stitch and I nearly have all the Lizzie Kate Snowbelle charts so will be stitching that one soon, I cannot wait to start it.

This was a fun stitch I love the snowflake for the  snowmans body.  The tree was stitched using Oliver Twist threads.

I have also been stitching Country Cottage Needleworks Vintage Christmas.
I have used some Six Strand Sweets threads instead of the ones suggested. Mind you I usually just use threads I have as over here the hand dyed ones are so expensive.

I have also stitched the brown line below the Happy Holidays words but it did not all fit on my scanner.  I will have to take a photograph when I finish it.

Tree Farm

Tree Farm another ornament from Little House Needleworks,  Love the little reindeer, reminds me of a story my mum used to tell my boys when they were small.  Mum and my Stepfather Bernie had a house on Lake Baptiste, Ontario Canada and she used to send the boys photo's of the deer that came to visit them.  She used to tell them she looked after the reindeer for Father Christmas.  LOL

I have a little pile of these stitched pieces now,  I really must find some time to make them finished into ornaments.

Cardinal Winter

Shows you how far behind I am.  I only found out the other day that Webshots was closing and it has taken me hours to download my cross stitch photo's and put them onto Photobucket.  I hope they don't close I don't want to do all that again.

Here is my Cardinal Winter from Little House Needleworks.

I love these Little House Needleworks ornaments and have a few more to stitch up and I'm sure my LHN to do list will grow even bigger.

Long time no post

It's been a while since my last post.  With the summer holidays, my sister visiting from Canada and a couple of famly dramas my blog has been badly neglected and so has my stitching.  But I am stitching again.

  Here is a Halloween piece I stitched from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween ornament magazine.

It is called White Pumpkins by Donna Bayliss of By the Bay Needlecraft.

Hopefully it will not be long before I post again, I have almost finished a Little House Needlework ornament which I should be able to show you in a day or two. 

Happy Stitching
