A Few More Ornaments And Some Other Stuff...

Sammi gets very moody if I don't post a picture of her every so often, so I dug into the archives and found this one. She actually looks perky.
Picked up this little gem on Wednesday. This was great quick stitch. I like how it turned out. You can click on any of the pictures for a closer look.

Alittle close up.
Close up of the frame. I like the two toned brown. I have used this molding before.

I finished a couple more ornaments.

All of them are the monthly ornaments by LHN. Everything I am showing you today is LHN. I need to mix it up alittle, don't you think? I hope to find some time next week for the finishing of these ornaments. First, I need to go to Joann Fabrics for some trim. I know that All is Calm will be a little pillow and Peppermint Twist will be a pincushion. The rest will probably be regular ornies. I will show them after they are finished.

I finished this last month and popped it into my frame. Like Myra, I left a light on in a second floor window. I like to think that it is me up late reading my kindle, which I do frequently.
All of the monthly designs reside on this shelf in the kitchen. All of the designs go into this frame. I pop them in and out every month. I change up the other things that I put on the shelf for the holiday or season.

Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the world. I love the comments and will try to get better at answering some of the questions. I appreciate them all.

I would like to wish two wonderful women from my Wednesday stitching group, Nataly and Ellen a Happy Hanukkah! Until next time...Happy Stitching. Deborah

Your stitching and finishing is always an inspiration to me. Beautiful work as usual.
Love your choice in the two tone brown frame.
The little elf on your shelf looks like he's doing a happy dance!!

All your stitching is stunning. I love the winter band sampler. It is on my list to do. I love your monthly piece framed.

You are definitely prepared for the upcoming season. Love all your work. The stitching and finishing are so perfect!

Robin said...

Congrats on a lovely finish! The frame that you chose is the perfect showcase for it! I just have to ask what fabric you used for the December piece...it looks slightly lavender and if it is, I must say, I love the color combination.

Looking forward to seeing your finishes on the little ornaments.

Melanie said...

That frame is just perfect for that design. Very very pretty project. I love it. :)

Catherine said...

Thanks for the Hanukkah Wishes!! All of your stitching is beautiful! Can't wait to see your finished ornaments. As for Sammi, I have to ask, who's the boss??

Carol said...

I never get tired of seeing LHN finishes, Deborah, and yours are so pretty!

Hopefully, Sammi has been a good girl this year! I'm sure she's really looking forward to some Christmas goodies :)

Hazel said...

I love your beautiful finishes. I bet your home is just lovely especially that shelf. x

Myra said...

Deborah your framed piece is lovely. I really like the motif near the top with the cardinals, wouldn't that be pretty by itself as a pin pillow? (I am so partial to cardinals. ) Love the ornaments too and your December sampler. We DO think alike as I am popping my samplers in and out of the same two frames. Love the touch of "leaving the light on". ;O)

Hi Sammi, I bet you are proud of your Mum for all the stitching she has finished this year. Winter is no exception and it looks lovely. I love your idea of changing your stitching to the seasons. That wouldn't work here as we can often get all of the seasons in one day.

Your ornies are looking great!

Ranae said...

Love Love the framed piece.
Gosh! I love the ornies too.

DonnaTN said...

I love LHN so you don't need to change it up as far as I'm concerned! Your ornaments are so cute. They tempt me to get mine finished when I need to work on gifts!

Dee said...

All of your projects are adorable. I particularly like peppermint!

Karen said...

Great finishes...your needle must be hot!

Lynn said...

Beatiful finishes!! I love your choice of frame on the Winter Band Sampler. The two-tone is great.

Angela P said...

I love the frame that you chose for the Winter Band Sampler! Great idea for the LHN months within the frame and I just might have to "hijack" the idea of leaving a light on too :)

Virpi said...

Your finishes looks so beautiful... Lovely stitching.

Cheryl said...

I love all your Christmassy stitching. So pretty!

Christine said...

Great stitching, the winter band sampler is stunning

Bekca said...

I love the idea of your seasonal shelf that you can change to fit the season. I might adapt the idea to fit myself if you don't mind. All of your stitching looks great and I can't wait to see your "finished" pieces. Happy stitching to you.

BrendaS said...

Your Winter Band Sampler looks so pretty in the frame you chose! Nice job.

You are really cranking out the LHN ornaments. Can't wait to see how you finish them:)

I never get tired of seeing LHN finishes. Keep them coming.

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful ornament finishes! Lovely framed piece, I like the two toned colours.

Thank you for your comment on my blog.

Marie-P said...

I love you Winter sampler and enjoyed the pictures of your LHN ornaments. What a great idea to use the frame and interchange them each month...must "steal" that idea. :)

Janice Boucher said...

I like your cute little elf (he's kinda retro) and tree. I sure do miss your Willirayes. Are you going to be putting them out soon? If I remember correctly, didn't you have some Winter cuties? You inspired me to buy some.
