I received another wonderful ornament in the mail recently. This one was from Karen (AZ). She stitched it over one on hand-dyed linen! It's just beautiful! And finished beautifully too!
She also included a couple of goodies! There was a chocolate bar, but the kids ate it before I could take a picture. Thank you Karen! I love everything!
I went to Amy's yesterday for a little Christmas get together. We exchanged gifts and also an ornament.
Amy gave us all one of these cute gift card holders that she made into a needle and scissor holder. I just love it! I added the scissors and threader.
There were also candy canes with this, but once again my kids ate them before I could take a picture! :)
For our gift exchange I got Amy. You can see what I gave her on her blog. Myra (no blog) got my name and she got me a Brenda Keyes chart "The Contented Mind" and this very nice lantern. I just love it!
Karen (SC) got my ornament and I got hers. She stitched a design from the new Blackbird Designs book.
Here it is on the tree...
I just love it Karen! Amy was originally going to get this ornament, but at t he last minute Amy told Karen to let me chose between the two she had. Well, I just couldn't resist this one. I felt so bad after the fact though, so I have promised Amy that I will make her one!! :) Karen also made these sweet little fobs for everyone. She is so talented!
I have been stitching a little bit. I have been working on block seven of CaHRH and I also started something new - Prairie Schoolers Christmas Alphabet (pictures are in my flickr album). I'm loving it, but I had to put it aside for a little bit because I started working on a model for Lisa, designer of The Primitive Needle. I'm determined to get it finished before we go to Florida again next Saturday. Wish me luck!
