Ding Dong

The actual name of the ornament this month is "Ding Dong Merrily on High."  And thank goodness I have Vonna doing the finishing again!  She is so creative.  I just love what she did with this one.

It is mounted on foam core and trimmed with twisted thread on the sides with a bow at the top.  All three designs will ship on Friday this week.  It won't be long now!  I hope to have the LHN web site updated that day too.

The temperature in Tucson is HOT.  It doesn't matter if it is 100 or 105.  There comes a point when it pretty much all feels the same.    

We just did some dog-sitting for Nikki while she and the family were away at Juliet's last dance competition of the season.  I caught a sweet picture of Luke and our grandson Andrew that I want to share.

It was so hot on Sunday.  Andrew stripped down to his diaper and played in the pool we had set up for Luke and Gracie.  It was clean water. . . . . I promise.  :)  The dogs were in it the day before, the water changed and then they went in after he left.

When Luke gets in he just lays in the water.  Gracie tip-toes around in it, gets a drink and gets out.

So that's all for now. . . . . thank you all for the wonderful comments on the new patterns, here and on Facebook.  

Happy Stitching,

    They are all so cute! I love the new designs this week!

  2. ADORABLE little ornament!

  3. Diane, I don't know how you keep coming up with such great ideas for these ornaments. It seems like when each new one comes out, I think it's my favorite. :-) Bravo!!

    Vonna did a great job with the finishing too!

  4. I had forgotten this one....again *grin* I worry myself sometimes....

  5. I am definitely stitching this one for my husband at Christmas. His choir sings this song every year during the holiday. It's fabulous Diane!
    I love Vonna's finishing too.

    I don't blame the dogs one bit for taking a dip with the temps that high!


Thank you so much for taking time from your day to drop me a line or two!
