Welcome! and Primitive ornaments SAL

Welcome to my new blog! A clean slate with new memory base as my old blog was full. I have also decided to place the emphasis on what I love best about needlework...the connection with the past.

My Primitive ornaments SAL will continue on this blog. For any wanting to still stitch the previous ornaments, they will be on NeedleNecessities so you can search for them there. Our next ornament is called Warm Hands and Heart. Don't you just love mittens in the winter? I do. They bring me back to my childhood when I wear them on a cold winter's day. I hope this ornament will bring that warm feeling to you too!

Enlarge the chart photo and copy to Word or an email to print. Substitute the mittens and/or heart with buttons, if desired.

I received emails from a couple of ladies that they had to finish their ornaments but Letty sent me the following photos of her Candy Canes ornament and all her ornaments in a tray. Don't they look great sitting together like this? Wonderful job Letty and thanks. This month's prize will be on its way to you soon.

Hey there Heidi!
Thanks for the new link - I've added it to my blogreader. Love the new look ;) When you said the title of the blog, I was thinking - HEY - that is familiar. LOVE that sampler verse- always have. Great title! Just don't put too much Ducth on here or I won't be able to read it. LOL

Ok, I found you. It is so dumb that blogs fill up and then they make you pay.
Your new ornament is really cute.
The new look is really cute too.
Love Mom

I found you and the new blog looks great, love the title! Thank you for sharing another stiching design.
PS I better get in touch with my Mom so she can help me brush up on my Dutch :-)

Saskia said...

That it something different. A new blog because the other one is full.
It remembers me at my diary. Had one full, and had to start another one.
Didn't know you have to pay when it's 'full'to keep on blogging on the same blog.
And guess what,... I did some work on my charmquilt Yesterday. WHOEHOO... At last after lots of hard work, i can do my thing again.
So if you feel oke, come over at my new house for a cup of coffee.
Hugs Saskia

DonnaTN said...

I've followed you to your new blog and it looks great! Letty's ornaments look great too! Thanks for the latest ornament chart!

Ginny said...

Hi, Heidi! I love the look of your new blog, but not the fact that the "instructions" (such as "Post a Comment") are not in English! I guess I'll get used to it.

Pondside said...

I've made the changes to my blog list - I don't want to miss any of your posts!

MarianneD said...
