My last weeks progress...

Hi all!
I hope everyone had a great week.  This week has been a busy one for me.  I worked, what seems like a ton, so I didn't have as much time to stitch this week.  I did take some time this weekend to enjoy a movie with my husband.  We saw Les Miserables.  Oh my goodness...this was such a good movie.  They did an excellent job with it.  I've seen it on Broadway twice, and it was so comparable.  Toward the end of the movie, I told my husband that Hugh Jackman seemed like he sounded a lot like Colm Wilkinson, who did Jean ValJean on Broadway in the original production and also in the Anniversary Concert.  Then come to find out that Colm Wilkinson was the bishop in the movie.  It all made sense. If you haven't seen it, you really need to.  
So, here's my stitching progress this week... 
This is Amy Brueken Designs A Man A Month.  I'm working on this as a model for my LNS.  I didn't make a lot of progress on this, but I did get the backstitiching done on the last two snowmen on the top row.  I'd like to get this one done soon.  I think this one is going to get some focusing on for awhile.
 This is my ornament that I worked on this week.  It's from LK's Joy to the World.  I love how it turned out.
Now, can anyone tell me what this last one is from?  This is for an exchange, but it was a fundraiser piece several years ago.  I've wanted to do it for a long time, so I decided to do it for the exchange.  Sorry the picture isn't that great.
Well, I hope everyone has a great week.

I loved the movie - I had not the seen the broadway show - but the movie with LIam Neeson it came out in the late 90's I think.. It is such a powerful story...

Love your stitching
