Ornament Transformation

Anyone that knows me is aware that I like to change up the fabric on the monthly Little House Needlework ornaments. The recommended fabric as shown on the cover model is fine but I like to challenge myself to find a fabric color that will add some zing to the design.....make it stand out if even just a tiny bit. The latest ornament from LHN is Joy To The World; a sweet angel heralding the birth of our Savior, Jesus. She is just lovely on the Weeks Straw fabric but I wanted her to look stunning. Here is the latest fabric choice, Weeks Sky, 30 count. Don't the threads look great against that blue?

And in local news, I am counting down the days until the new Bolingbrook Costco is open for business!! I love Costco - I think they should hire me to be a spokesperson. I snuck a picture one's that for sticking to a deadline? It was about 8pm and they were still working on the building! It was lit up like August with floodlights. Yay, Costco!

Thank you all for reading!


  1. Hi! You make me laugh about the Costco excitement. I have yet to go to the Orland one but everyone swears by it- so I should check it ot sometime. Your butterfly below is adorable- LOVE it! Your ornament is very cute as well- YOU have been busy! See you tonight~

  2. I love Costco also, which I had one close by. The ornament is really cute, need to go and pick up mine at the LNS.

  3. Cathy,
    Can't wait to stitch this new ornament. The blue fabic really makes the DMC's pop. This is really going to be pretty when stitched. LOVE all your fabric substitutions!!!!

  4. I can't wait to see the ornament on the blue fabric. I have the feeling that will be a must have. I can't wait to go to Costco either!!!!!
