Country Cottage Needleworks, Santa's Village part 1 of 12 finish

Hi everyone,

I had so much fun stitching the 1st piece of Santas' Village I went looking for more and I found Little House Needleworks ornament series. So drumroll please.................ta da..

CCN - Santa's House
LHN - Tree Farm & Sleigh Bells Ring
Stitched on 35 count Natural, 1 over one
with DMC and GAST threads
Aren't they sweet and the fun part is there are lots more to choose from. Oh so many projects and not enough hours in the day. I am hopelessly and easily distracted by all the wonderful things I find out in the cybersphere. My fingers stitch and stitch and the to-do pile just gets bigger. I am sure all dedicated stitchers have the same problem  addiction. At least with these small projects the time to finishing is closer and it does the heart good when they proudly sit in the finished basket.

My birdcage class piece is coming along nicely but not enough progress to show, yet.

A friend has agreed to help me set up a website so I will be able to sell my needlework charts online. It will take a while to to get right but it is very exciting to finally be able to move along to the next chapter in my needlework journey. 2013 should be very interesting.

Bye for now, Carol


  1. Congratulations on planning a website! That is exciting news indeed! Good luck getting it all set up and working.

    1. Thank you Jane, I am a complete novice when it comes to website stuff but luckily my friend has all the experience needed and has successfully completed a site for a fellow stitcher very recently. So it will be fun.
      Bye for now, Happy stitching, Carol

  2. Beautiful! I've just discovered the LHN ornments too. I'm not allowing myself to start any of them (of course I've bought them all) until I finish a couple of WIP/UFOs.

    1. I must award a gold star for your patience. The WIP basket is overflowing in this home and still they increase. My eyes are quicker than my fingers. So many clever designers and so many beautiful projects. Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol

  3. Hi Carol,

    1. Hi Lynn,
      Thank you. Christmas is rolling up very fast. February already. I have just ordered No.3 in the series and it is just so pretty. Looking forward to the end result and there will be a photo.
      Sorry about this email problem I have been trying to resolve it with help, hoping it will be fixed soon.
      Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
