Christmas Ornies and SAL Updates

Hello Everyone!
Finished 2 ornaments that I had stitched 2 years ago. When I had seen some ornaments by Little House Needleworks, I knew immediately that I had to stitch them & with some changes. That was 2 years ago and finally got them completed. But first:

Congratulations to Linda - "Stitchin with my Furbabies" blog,
You won the drawing for "Snappy Sampler" by Bent Creek chart.
I will be getting this in the mail to you this week Linda.

"Gingerbread Village" by LHN
14ct adia, called for threads and "Ho! ho! ho!" by Fils a Soso

This ornament I named and added "Holly Lane" to this, because a part of my childhood we lived in the mountains. And I actually got to live on a street named "Holly Lane".

 
Our street "Holly Lane" did go up a hill and led to our house. So this was a perfect design to recall some childhood memories.

"Red House in Winter" by Little House Needleworks
14ct adia & all recommended threads
Next ornament I named "the Cabin". Growing up, everyone in our family called the house in the mountains "The Cabin". And our cabin was painted this color. Too perfect of a design to commemorate our family house from long ago.


 Finished part 2 of "Mary's Sampler"  by Plum Street Samplers. I know many of you are stitching this too. It's fun to see everyone's progress. This is my first nativity I have gotten to stitch. I am loving this sal.

 My progress on Vickie's SAL "Autumn Delight". I started on the bottom left of the design.
Yesterday I got in the mail 2 new Qsnap Huggies made by Christine that I ordered. I love them and I got them quickly. The name of the fabric for this one is Horse and Carriage. It has darling barns and apples too.


 This Qsnap Huggie fabric is called "Tinkerbell". It also has the pixie fairys - so cute.
Perfect for stitching "Fairy Hill"by  Bothy Threads Cut Thru SAL with Debbie and Linda.

This weeks progress on Fairy Hill - I filled in lots of the sand on the bottom and got a good large section done, then got some mint green stitches at the top. Working on page 4 of 9.
This week is my birthday and I turn 50:) Plans? Probably a day of going out for lunch, a special dinner and maybe some shopping:)
Hope you are enjoying good weather and are able to get some stitching done.
Beautiful weather here, low 70's and sunny.  With Love and Appreciation - Annette

Very pretty finishes, your ornaments are lovely. Great progress on your stitching too :)

Annie said...

Your finishes are so sweet. I love how you personalized them.

I find the covers on q-snaps to be kind of annoying. When I need to tighten the snaps (frequently!), they make it difficult to do that. And the whole thing seems harder to hold. Do you not have that problem? Of maybe you attach the snaps to a floor stand?
