A good beginning


Hi gang,

Here is my first ornament for our SAL. It's from a 1998 JCS ornament issue, and was designed by The Needle and I. I've always liked stitching little houses, but this one felt very familiar to me as I worked on it. It turns out that the house was part of a larger group of houses that I had stitched way back in 1988! Some things never change, huh?

Stitched on 32 ct natural linen, with DMC cotton floss (red is #4210).

Great job, love this house. I think I'm going to be getting mine from the JCS magazines too. TFS

VERY pretty! I'm getting the same déjà vu feeling as I stitch mine...

The varigated reds are really a nice touch.
