Past Week's Stitching Projects

I stitched 4 ornaments this past week, although I have yet to finish them. Participating in the Bride's Tree SAL prompted me to stitch 2 more houses for the January theme and stitch 2 heart designs for the February theme.
This one is "Home" and was a freebie chart from Just Another Button Company. The chart called for Caron Collection Watercolors threads, which I didn't have. I used DMC variations and variegated threads and stitched on 14ct fiddler light aida.
This ornament is "Little Cottage" by Michael Powell. It was a freebie chart to members of the Michael Powell cross stitch group at Yahoo. I used DMC threads and stitched on 14ct pale blue aida.
This ornament is "Keys To My Heart" by Erica Michaels and was a freebie from Rainbow Gallery. I didn't have the Rainbow Gallery threads, so instead used DMC threads and stitched this on 14ct light pink aida.
This fourth ornament is "Be My Love Tree of Hearts" and was a freebie from Passione Ricamo. I used DMC threads and stitched it on 14ct oatmeal aida. I left off the "Be My Love" wording.
It has been so enjoyable stitching these ornaments and now I have to decide how I will finish them.
