Today I will show you some more new designs from my St. Valentine Collection. I wanted to do it yesterday but again Blogger was not too kind to me, I hope it works better tonight.

I also wanted to show a Christmas ornament which I made for February. It is The Prairie Schooler 1996 Santa. I got the leaflet from Angela, my HOE partner. Thank you Angela for the lovely design, I enjoyed stitching it. It was my so-called "car project": I always keep a project in the car to stitch during our trips. I tried to finish this design in a very simple way, no fancy trims or bows this time - PS designs call for something simple, don't they? So I stitched it on hand dyed Aida, 18 ct., made it into a soft hanging ornament with a handle made from the backing fabric and even a couple of jingle bells are tied to the handle with the threads pulled from the Aida. :-))The ornament does not have country or primitive look - I am not good at these styles - but it looks rather old-fashion:
There is no snow for the poor Santa in my yard, only Pop Corn bush is all covered with tiny "snowball":* * * * * * * * *
I want to thank Yana (Яна) for passing me another award. I really appreciate this and traditionally pass it to all my readers: you are my source of inspiration and you are my support.
Thank you everyone for dropping by and leaving comments - I love to read them!
