Ornament for Julianne

Julianne is April's recipient for the Christmas Ornament Swap. I really love the way this turned out, and I'm so glad Julianne likes it too!


The ribbon is some imported French ribbon I found at Elfriede's in Boulder. And the little buttons I found in my button jar.


House on Holly Hill

fabric: 32ct lambswool linen
fibers: WDW

This was a pure joy to stitch and I plan on making one for my own tree (someday!) Thanks for stopping by and for all of your wonderful comments...they sure make my day! Have a terrific weekend everyone!!!

I have this chart in my 'to do asap' pile but it is looking a bit dog-eared with me moving it from place to place so I don't loose it or forget about it !
