January House

Hi everyone! This is my first post here so let me introduce myself. I am Olga from Louisiana, USA. I love different kinds of needlework, especially cross stitching. I hope to find nice friends and a lot of inspiration here.

For the January task I have chosen two winter houses with lots of snow - you know it's very important for Louisiana :-)). Here they are. The first design is called "Winter Cottage" freebie by Maryse. I used DMC floss on 28 ct.Glass Blue Monaco and modified the design some to make into a pin keep.

The other design is The Drawn Thread freebie "Home For The Holidays", stitched on hand coffee dyed 28 ct.Evenweave, DMC floss, MillHill beads, made into a knob knocker.

Jenn thank you very much for the prompt answer and help. Happy stitching to everybody, Olenka's Stitches

Both are so beautiful! I love your finishes too. Funny, I live in Chicago and refused to do a house with snow. I wonder why?
