Happy New Year...

My name is Vonna and I blog over at The Twisted Stitcher .

I have been following this "2012 Year of Smalls Blog" since its inception and thought I'd give this first "assignment" a go.

Happily I finished stitching these in the last three days and finished them last night. Maybe it might inspire some of you to do some over one this really turned out gorgeous. I'm tickled pink over it.

Poinsetta House

Poinsetta House finish

"Poinsettia House"
stitched one over one on 25 ct. Lugana Country French Mocha
stitched with DMC and Crescent Colours as charted

I kept thinking that the urn of poinsettias would be gorgeous as an oval ornament so I stitched one for each of my daughters:
Sister Ornaments

Poinsetta Urn Ornament

"Sister Ornaments"
stitched on 28 ct. mystery linen

And here  is a photo of all three...I thought it was funny the size differences:


Thank you to Laura for allowing me to join in the fun! I can't wait for our next "assignment"!
Happy New Year to you all, and pop on over to see me at my blog!
