A couple of exchanges to share....

I know that both of the exchanges I mailed last week were received, so I thought I'd post them. First is the 2nd ornament I stitched for Carol in the Ornament Exchange group I've been a part of for almost a year. The first one I sent hasn't shown up, so I hope wherever it went, the person is enjoying it! This one is by Mary Garry.... a little birdie told me Carol is a big Mary Garry fan, so I stitched this for her. :-)


Next up is a design by Anita's Little Stitches of an emery. Karen AZ wished for an emery/strawberry & put pink as one of her fav colors. I thought this was was a pretty design & decided to stitch it in pink, like the model, only with different threads. I think it's rather cute, even if it is pink. ;-) It shows it was delivered to Karen at the end of last week. I sure hope she likes it.


I stitched a bit on Sunday & for maybe an hour last night. Things have been rather crazy/hectic around here lately. Hope to get more stitching in tonight. First I need to list tons of fabric on my sale/trade blog, hope to get to that this evening, wish me luck! :-)
Thanks for all of your kind comments about Ray & our new fountain. He is amazingly talented.... one of these days I'll post pics of some of his guitars he's made... THAT will amaze you! He can figure out how to make almost anything.... he does do research (LOTS of it) and he has a plan always. He rarely ever just starts something & figures it out as he goes. He's quite the perfectionist. I don't know how he ended up with me! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!

I love the Mary Garry Skater girl...how sweetly done is she? And what a lovely strawberry! I'm sure Karen in over the moon!
He did a lot of research that's how come he picked you, because he knew you were best ;o)
