11th Ornament!


Remember the three LHN full sized designs called Two Red, Two White and Two Blue Houses??  This ornament is modeled after them with two saltbox houses facing one another.  It is so peaceful and serene hence the name "All is Calm".  Those words also come from the Christmas carol, "Silent Night".

So didn't Vonna finish this beautifully?  She and I decided to do something a little different with this ornament and finish it larger so you could see how it can be used to hang on a peg or knob.  I love it!  It already has a place reserved on a drawer pull on my china cabinet.  The model was stitched on 30 count fabric but if you choose 32 or smaller the ornament gets smaller too. I simply love the red check and the country feel of this finish.

I did bonus this pack with an extra smaller chart that didn't get stitched but it is the same coloring as this one. It's a design with one saltbox house and the words "Bless our Home" and a tree beside it. 

On another note. . . . . . .I know Vonna is very busy finishing this fall and she does have a deadline for submissions so if you want her help, get your ornaments to her as fast as you can!

This ships mid-September.

Happy Stitching!
Diane
