It's beginning to look....

Happy Friday!

I thought I'd give a shout out to the ladies who've been sending me their Christmas stitches to finish.... Don't get me wrong, these Fall stitches that are out there right now are beautiful, but I'm seeing quite a few of you getting a jump on the holiday season too... I'd like to feature a few of the finishes I've done for these smart stitchers~ You'll see many LittleHouse designs~ and more.......

This one is a design out of the 2014 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview issue

I taught myself to the Coral Stitch and added as an accent to this one~

This ornament bag will look sweet with holly leaves poking out the top~

image
This one will too.... I thought "couching" twine was a subtle touch on this more rustic LHN design.....

image
Beaded hangers often add to the theme....

That's it for today..... My last weekend before teacher workdays begin.... Then a brand new batch of darling 6year olds will come into my classroom on the 25th~~ I can't wait!!!.... Oh, some of you have emailed about my cut off date for Christmas finishes.... It's looking like October 15 will be the cutoff date... If you're thinking you may need me, but may miss the date by a little, please email me now so I can pencil you in..... Happy to help!!


Enjoy these special days as summer winds down.....

I saw the post title and wasn't going to peek. But I did. Snowflakes and winter look great on your finishes, but that's the only place I want to see them!
