Hannah's Ornament

Hi there cloud friends!  I have really enjoyed reading all your blogs and seeing how you are preparing for the coming holidays.  We have all the decorating finished thanks to my DH.  I have done quite a bit but when I poop out due to a very tired back, he takes over.  I have started PT.  So far, they are just trying to get my stamina built back up.  I am not allowed to do any real bending or twisting until I see the surgeon in Jan. Hopefully at that time, the bones will be where he wants them and I will be able to go on with more strenuous PT. This whole thing is just taking patience which I am not very good at demonstrating. At least I can stitch as long as I take a walking break every hour. So I finished little Miss Hannah's Christmas ornament. As you know, I don't love finishing so it did take a few days to get it finished.  I used the flat ornament directions from "The Twisted Stitcher".  Vonna gives wonderful directions. Thanks Vonna!!

This is "Peppermint Twist!" by Little House Needleworks. We are having a very dark rainy day  so sorry for the dark photo!

 Here is the cutie herself! Miss Hannah!

 This was last year's ornament. I have forgotten the title but it was also a Little House Needleworks design.

I am also stitching The Promised Lamb from Plum Street Samplers.  I am really enjoying that project.  I will show my progress on the next post. Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the season!

  7. You keep stitching those ornaments for your Grand-daughter...that is one thing I am so glad that I started when each of my children were born, now our tree tells the story of our lives. And when they get married I will put all their ornaments stitched each year by me into a big box and gift them at their wedding shower. :)
