2022 Christmas Countdown - Little House Ornaments

Welcome to my 2022 Christmas Countdown.  

I've made a lot of special Christmas decorations over the years, so this year I've decided to do a Christmas Countdown and show you a different handmade decoration each day of December until Christmas Day.  It will be like opening a virtual advent calendar.  

I'm going to publish my daily December posts at 8pm New Zealand Daylight Savings Time (like I normally do with my weekly blog posts). The beauty of blogging is that the posts will always be there to look back on.

First up - some little house ornaments to hang on my tree. 

As you can see, these little houses were quite fiddly to make.  There's tiny beads, backstitches and lots of colour changes.  But they are so cute.  

I made these ornaments 10 years ago in 2012.  Back when I had more time on my hands than I do now!

I used the Victoria Sampler "Little House Ornaments" pattern and I love that they are all different colours.

Victoria Sampler patterns always include great finishing instructions with plenty of photos, so don't be intimidated if you want to give them a try.

These are just charming! They look like a lot of work, well done! Great that they are becoming a traditional decoration, and still look great after 10 years.
