Little House Needlework stash and ornament finish

My sister bought me these gorgeous Little House Needlework patterns for my birthday, apparently there is another one on it’s way but I am not sure which pattern it is. I did not have any of these patterns a few month’s ago but now I have six to stitch, I am really looking forward to stitching them as I have seen these on other blogs and they look lovely.

I am a little behind with my stitching deadlines at the moment, I should have finished a March Christmas ornament for the Christmas Challenge blog but I have only just got around to finishing it, I have posted the picture below.

Holly House by Elizabeth’s Designs from the
Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament’s 2008 Magazine

I changed the finish slightly from the original design, I trimmed it with green felt instead
of the yellow.

Stitched on 28 count linen
Thankyou for visiting, happy stitching everyone!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    What a sweet sister you have to send you all of those LHN charts. Your Christmas ornament is so pretty. The little touches of the beads and that pretty charm make it even nicer!
