Here's another pic of LHN HOAN:

Don't forget if you'd like to stitch this yourself then pop over to the previous post and answer my question.  Even if you don't need the chart pop over, read the fantastic answers and leave one of your own just for fun.  This is my best competition ever!

Part 2 - Just Nan-a-thon

Not so good, in fact nothing again!  Would anyone notice if I just quietly dropped Part 2?  LOL.

Part 3 - Theme-a-licious

Update coming tomorrow on Official Theme-a-licious Update Day.

Finally, I got my edition of the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornie Special through the post.  I'm really impressed by it.  Top of the list is the Blue Ribbon Designs Reindeer then Dragon Dreams Year of the Dragon but every section has 2, 3 or even 4 I want to stitch.  Except the first section, Snowmen.  Apparently I don't like stitching snowmen!


  1. Happy weekend and happy stitching xxx

  2. I can sympathise with snowmen, far too much white, lol, and I HATE stitching with white!

  3. I'm a new follower from the opposite end of the world, and just had to congratulate you on your lovely finish this month.
    I also received my Ornament Issue in the mail this week, and there are so many I want to stitch - including soem snowpeople!

  4. I have seen a few people stitching HOAN -- it looks great!

  5. Well done! Your finished cross stitch looks really nice! So far, I've stitched 2 snowmen... & yes, stitching white is boring ☺

  6. You already have several finishes fro your list congratulations :) And I've said this on your previous post... but the House of the Needleworker is really lovely :D

  7. Considering the emormity of the list you're doing so well. I love home of a needleworker - beautiful. xx

  8. Lovely finish on the HoaN.
    I liked this year's ornie edition much more than last year's

  9. You got a lot done, Jo! :D Just look at that "completion" list!!! :D
