Lots to share today.....

Hi everyone! I haven't had a chance to sit down & blog in awhile. Things should slow down a bit now I hope.

SBEBB Rabbit's Big Day Exchange
First, let me share this lovely exchange package from Chris! This is SBEBB's Rabbit's Big Day exchange (you all know I love rabbits) and Chris certainly did a wonderful job! She sent me a wonderful rabbit stitched it in red (which is my fav color) and filled the package with all things red (and the ADORABLE note cards too!). Thank you Chris for a wonderful exchange package, I love it all!!!


I had some friends over to stitch yesterday and it was a great day. I really enjoyed the "down time" & I finished most of an ornmanet. Hope to finish the stitching today & as soon as it's done, I will post a pic. Say hello to Deborah, Chris, Myra, me (in red of course), Malinda, Carolyn & Renee. Some of these gals drove down from NC for the day & we stitched, laughed & talked, ate, laughed & talked a bit more, had a little gift exchange, laughed & talked more, stitched a bit more, ate again & then it was time for everyone to go home. :-( Wish it could have last longer. We're doing it again in March, so if anyone wants to come, send me an email!!!

Here we are in "Ray's room" actually stitching! I had moved the red chair from the living room to have room for the Christmas tree, so that gave us an extra seat too! :-)

The Lord's Prayer
This is my current new project that I've started that I will work on around the exchange & RR's I'm in. It's an older OOP Stoney Creek Pattern, The Lord's Prayer. I just love this one. I started it Thanksgiving night but haven't had a lot of stitching time (not with all of the muscle spasms in my back) but I will get it done. I changed the word colors to CC's Onionskin as it is a close match to our wall color & I didn't wnat to do the words in blue. I like it & that's what matters! :-)

Actually, I've done a tiny bit more on it since this pic was taken. I'll post again when there is some progress to show. I think it would be a fairly quick stitch if I didn't need to work on other things!

I should be able to post some of my recent exchange finishes soon. I had to redo the Redwork for Cari as the first one never arrived. Isn't the postal system "wonderful"? ;-( Check back later for more pics!

Thanks for looking & hope everyone has a great day & a great week ahead! Happy stitching!!
