I just came across this site and think it is such a sweet idea. My granddaughter will be getting married this year, and I will start this project with a February ornament - heart. Hearts have always been one of my favorites, so I'm sure I will be able to find a design that will fit nicely to this theme.
I will post photos when I get a good start. I look forward to the sharing of projects on this blog.

Hi everyone!! Finally I have a completion to show. At least the stitching part. I used the complimentary chart released yesterday by Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks to the LHN Yahoo Group. Yes, I took quite a few liberties with her design, which she encourages. I just love her designs & she is such a sweet person.

When you post about your ornaments, please add labels or tags to the post. This will help others in the future when they want to search on a certain theme. In the first round, we found the habit of adding "house", "heart", "bird", etc., and the month, "February" for example, is useful. The main labels are already entered, and you can reuse them. We also tried to tag the name of the designer so as to give appropriate credit.
I'd also encourage you to add your moniker as a tag, in case you or someone else wants to see all the posts you made.

Here is my January's House. I've selected again (my second attempt at The Bride's Tree SAL) something in the red, white, and blue theme.

Sorry for the delay, last few days have been a little hectic around here.
Diane was so kind to go through the list of links and give us an updated list. I'm literally copying her info here
The Floss Box (Click on “Free cross stitch patterns” below the recent additions. There are 6 pages of free patterns, with at least one house pattern on each page.)
Waterglobe House is not found, and the patterns currently available on Stitch Alley that include houses are too large for ornaments
I’ve also found a few House patterns that would make nice ornaments in my travels around Blogdom:
Pam Miller: Spring Sampler House (scroll down for chart – on same page as Erica Michaels chart, farther down)Primitive Bettys: Home is Best
Thanks Diane for all your work!!
Hi, I'm new, too!

Here is my ornament for January -
The pattern is from a french designer "Maryse"
No finishing yet but will do them all at once.

I have been a member of this SAL for a while, but never posted a photo of this finish. This is a Julia Lucas ornament from a JCS issue. I stitched it two summers ago, finished it in July. It hung on our tree this year for the first time.
Here is my January Ornament, I have stitched the cottage where I live.
Stitched on 40 count Permin Linen with DMC threads and using a variety of embroidery stitches.
The design size is 6 x 4.5cm
Am going to wait till I have stitched several more before I finish the mounting as I want them all to look a set.
