LHN ornaments and a birthday gift ...

Yesterday I turned 3 stitched patterns into ornaments. My DH Michiel had these 3 stitched a couple of weeks ago when I was busy with other things :-)

All 3 are from Little House Needleworks (one of my favorite designers) and the fabric on the back on each photo are the backside of the ornaments.

Red House in Winter (ornament 6)

The Merry Skater (ornament 7)

On top I attached some felt leaves and some red beads

Frosty Flakes (ornament 8)
For the green I used Nina's Threads color Monstergreen

~~~~~~~~

Next week Nina has her birthday and I send her a birthday surprise. I sent it a bit early because the postmen in the Netherlands are on strike on and of.
I made her a pincushion with a scissorcase and scissorfob. The pattern is from Homespun Elegance and is named Pin Pokes I. I stitched it with Nina's Threads color Chilli and Monstergreen.


I totaly forgot to take a photo of the goodies I included but luckely Nina took a photo which I place here. Included where some charms, hearts, pins, fabric and lace
