Oh lookie what I got!!! (and more!)

I received a LOVELY gift in the mail today from our dear,sweet Vonna! Isn't this so pretty (and RED!)!?!?!! :-) She knows me too well! I love it, thank you Vonna! :-) And I do believe, 100%! This will stay out year round, along with all my other "redwork" pieces! :-)




Next is an exchange to Shelleen in the Make A Wish group! I just saw a post that she has gotten them! WHEW! According to the delivery confirmation, over the past 10 days they have gone from here to NY, then to VA then back to NY. I was so afraid they were lost. Shelleen's wish was for a floss ring tag for Halloween or Christmas. I decided to do one of each using the Krazy Kitties from Cat's Whiskers. There had to be purple somewhere so the Christmas kitty got purple boots. I sure hope Shelleen likes them. They were a fun & quick stitch (and I'm so glad the USPS didn't lose them!).


Below are two ornaments I finished yesterday. The first one is a Homespun Elegance design that I am giving to my Mom's friend Donna. She collects snowmen and I thought she might like this little guy. He's kinda cute, don't you think? Donna always bakes lots of cookies & breads for our entire family. It's her fault I'm getting fatter each year. Yep, that works, I'll blame it on Donna! ;-)



And this one is for my niece Hannah. It's an older SanMan design which I'm pretty sure is OOP. I gave the other two SanMan's from a previous post to my mom & sister. Hannah likes anything pink (she didn't get that from me!) so I thought she might like this one for their tree. I included a pic of the fabric I used on the back. It's from a fat quarter that Louise sent me not too long ago. It's pretty cute.... I guess you could say it's a 2 sided ornament, Hannah certainly thought so! :-)



Thanks for looking & hope someone is getting some stitching in... none going on around here!

Love your San-man ornament. I believe I have this in my stash and love the pink color. Will have to drag it to stitch for next year.
