OOooohhhhhh...... pretty huh?

I received 2 Ornaments today in the ornament exchange group I'm in..... all I can say is WOW! STUNNING! I bet as soon as you saw the pics you said "oooohhhhhhh" too didn't you? ;-)



The first one is from Vonna, and it's simply amazing! It's a Prairie Schooler "Angel" & I'm pretty sure my very first PS ornament ever! It's stunning on that black fabric isn't it? And I LOVE the fact that she's holding a dove. She's my fav of the 3 of these designs... Vonna knows me pretty well I guess. Thank you again Vonna, she's LOVELY!


And this beauty is from Cathy B! Isn't it pretty as can be? I love it as well. It's a Nordic Needle design from one of the JCS Ornament issues & she has stitched & finished it just beautifully hasn't she? Thank you so much Cathy, it's gorgeous front & back!





I haven't stitched but an hour or two since I finished the Prairie Schooler (below) last Monday night. That's about 10 days.... I was moving along so good & started not feeling so great & just lost my rhythm I guess. :-( Maybe I'll pick something up tonight, but I doubt it.

Ray & I played hooky from work today & went out of town. I know, shame on us, but we needed to pick up a few things that we can't get locally and one place we needed to go isn't open on the weekend at all. So.... off we went! I came home with a beautiful Foxglove that Ray has already planted for me, and a bag full of "necessities" from Victoria's Secret. Talk about a SALE! They are having one heck of a sale that started today. I came home with 3 bra's & 12 pairs of undies for just under $65. I did have a couple of coupons for freebies & discounts off, but geez, that's like striking gold as you'll know if you shop at VS! TMI?? If so, sorry! But if you're a VS customer, you should really head over there this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!

You lucky girl....for both the ornaments that are gorgeous and the great buy at VS! Don't shop there any more since I'm more "mature" than I use to be :( Hate menopause!!! LOL

Hope your feeling better. Have a great weekend.

Those ornaments are beautiful! Great buy at VS, but I got an email last night that you can get 10 panties for $25.00. May have to go there myself today.
