Mill Hill Christmas houses finally mounted

I wanted to do something besides framing so I tried this technique. It's not awesome, but if I decide after the years I don't like it, I can always get it here are some photos to try and capture the beauty. Which photos really don't do! All photos are "clickable" if you want to see them larger.

And here is Amberlyn helping decorate our tree last weekend. I have one more tree to put up and hope to do that today while she is here. All of her ornaments ended up on 2 branches, so after she left I had to do just a bit of rearranging! LOL Hope everyone has a happy Holiday!


  1. That cross stitch looks good unframed---something different.

    Enjoy your family for the holidays


  2. hello dear, its me cucki from south africa..i am your new follower now glad that we met :)
    thank you for your kind comment on my blog..
    great finish..i love is looking so beautiful..well done for it.
    keep well and have a lovely time with the tree is looking so lovely.
    hugs for you xx

  3. It looks awesome! Congrats on the finish.

  4. Your houses look fantastic!! How on earth did you finish that off?

  5. That looks like a great finishing idea, Nancy. I think it would work very well for finishing off seasonal pieces that you don't want to put a lot of money into framing...

    Love each of the tiny houses and their little accent beads--that looks like a very time consuming piece to stitch :)

  6. Nancy, I love the way you finished it. It will make it much easier to store it that way too, although I would be tempted to leave that out all year as it is so beautiful. Cute picture with Amberlynn. More precious memories!!

  7. Wow wow wonderful, and it remembers me that I have neglected my stitching this year soooo very very much....hope to get back to it soon;-)))


  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog dear. Thank you.
    I like your Mill Hill piece and had thought of doing one similar to yours... but it is still only a thought. LOL. I have so many things already started that need finishing.
    Love the photo of you and DD hanging ornaments on the tree. TFS.
    Take care

  9. That looks fantastic Nancy. What a neat idea to finish it like that. Love it.

  10. The cross stitch looks wonderful, I think you did a great job!

    It looks like Amberlynn was having a great time decorating the tree with you! Happy Holidays!

  11. I think youve made some truly interesting points. Not too many people would actually think about this the way you just did. Im really impressed that theres so much about this subject thats been uncovered and you did it so well, with so much class. Good one you, man! Really great stuff here.

    1. Thank you for your comments! I could thank you personally but you are a "no reply" commenter so I am doing it here. And I don't think you will even see it!

  12. Mill Hill is an affluent suburb in the London Borough of Barnet.
