Ornament Finish!

Karen emailed me to let me know she received the ornament I stitched for her for our ornament exchange. I stitched Little House Needleworks "Pear Tree" from the 2006 JCS Ornament Issue.

LHN "Pear Tree"

LHN "Pear Tree" ornament for Karen

The linen is 40 ct. Vintage River Willow and the threads are Crescent Colours (I used Desert Mesquite instead of Joshua Tree) and DMC. I used Ruth's Finishing Method - my favorite way to finish ornaments! The felt is WDW Houndstouth Pecan.

I have been working on HoHRH - trying to get house four finished up by the end of April. Hopefully I can do it. I really want to stay on schedule with this one! This block is not my favorite though. The colors aren't my favorite. I'll post a pic tomorrow.
