The nights are drawing in and there is a definite chill in the air here in my part of the UK, a reminder that Christmas is just around the corner :-0 and it will soon be time to decorate my tree with all those lovely LHN ornies i have been stitching, i can't wait!
So i got a move on and completed another 2.
Here's the Red House. I didn't have the required red for the house so i used my favourite red, Threadworx 1089

I do love little houses, and i think this one is my favourite ornie at the moment.
~~~~~~~~~~
Next is another cute little snowman, i wasn't too kean on this when i first saw the chart but he has grown on me since stitching him.

Again i substituted the green because i didn't have what was called for, i used a Weeks thread instead.
~~~~~~~~~~
Not in the Christmas theme but, i do have another finish, Souvenir de France which was a freebie doing the rounds a while ago.

Finished as a pin pillow using DMC 4140 (variegated thread). It's a little big for a pin pillow really but at least i now have somewhere to stick my needle when i finish stitching for the night :-)
~~~~~~~~~~
I have been working on Yesteryear a little too but it got abandoned in favour of all the above, it's on my list to get finished off by the end of October though if i possibly can.
~~~~~~~~~~
I'll be MIA for the next week, we are going on our last sunshine break of the year, we shall be in Gran Canaria by this time tomorrow night, hopefully i'll be sitting somewhere warm with a glass of Sangria in my hand, lol.
Thank you for your visits and comments, they really make my day :-)
Have a great week whatever you may be up to. xx

Beautiful finishes!! I love those LHN ornaments- I hope they remain available for awhile as I haven't gotten them yet! I am jealous of your cool weather-still hot in North Carolina! :P

Beautiful. I think my favorite is the little house too!

I love all your pillows and I think I like your substitution on Red House better than the original.
I'll have to write that floss down. It's such a pretty colour.
Hope you enjoy your vacation. Have a glass of sangria for me!

All three of your finishes are just beautiful! I hope you'll share a picture of your tree with all your pretty handstitched ornaments. The red house, simply finished as a pillow, with the red bow, is so stunning!
