I am not sure which one I will start next but I going definitely try to have another one done by the end of this month.

Take care and happy stitching!!!!!!!!!!!

I finished my first LHN ornament of 2012 last night.  I'm trying to do one ornament per month but they aren't all LHN ones -I have so many ornaments I want to stitch! 

This is "Deck the Halls" from the 2011 series.  I stitched it on 36-ct linen with the threads called for.
One down, many more to go!

Presents under the Tree Finish

I said I had another ornament in my post a few weeks ago, amoungst all the hub-bub of holidays I forgot to post it!!
But I suppose late is better than never. I finished this up just before Santa.
I love the doll so much and it was great fun to stitch up (I think it's called Presents under the tree):
(sorry for the poor photo)

Bringing the Tree Home

I did up two ornaments this past week, but apparently didn't take a picture of one. Figures. lol.
However here is Bringing The Tree Home. It's on a 28ct (I think, it's from stash) and the colours are changed to accommodate what I had around. I really do love this design.

I also did up Toys Under the Tree but have no pic. So I'll have to get one and post it later.

Thanks to Vonna for posting about this group on her blog and then allowing me to join!
My name is Mel and I have a stitching blog over at:

I've got all of the LNH ornies to date, but I have only finished 3 of them and just can't seem to find any pictures! Figures.

However I do plan on starting another few this month and finishing them quite quickly so I'll be back with updates I hope!

Some finishes

Here is a picture of the first lot of ornies I have finally got around to putting together! More will be done this weekend or else my poor tree will be bare

Hi Everyone

Hello there, it's so nice to be here - I am hoping Vonna doesn't think she has a stalker - I have joined 4 of her SAL groups so far, 3 of which were today!

I love these LHN ornies and was so pleased when Diane said she was doing another year, is it too early to start hoping for a series in 2013 too!!

I have stitched most of 2011s charts and have about 5 or so to do of 2010s - I have one last Christmas present to stitch and then I shall be back to the ornies with a vengeance!

I blog over at: Lucie's Stitching Journey

I look forward to seeing everyone's progress and showing off my little ornies :)
