A Gift & An Exchange....

I have two finishes to share today.... first is the birthday gift I sent to Vonna who's birthday was yesterday. This is one of Prairie Moon's Patriotic Boxes with the design stitched & finished into a pincushion. I used 32 ct Lakeside Light Exampler (my fav fabric!) and WDW/GAST's. It's filled with crushed walnut shells & turned out kinda cute I think! :-)






Next up is the last ornament in the 08-09 Ornament exchange group I have been in. This one went to Becky SC. It's by Amy B. Designs (formerly of Sister's & Best Friends) & it's called "Peace". It always makes me smile when I see it, so I was hoping that's what it would do for Becky too. I added the bell & bow at the neck & put some at the top. It's also stitched on 32 ct Lakeside Light Examplar using DMC floss. Hope he makes you smile too! :-)





I am almost finished with an exchange that I'm ONLY almost a year late in sending. Yes, shame on me, I know. :-( This was a private exchange between a few friends & I have put it off for first one reason then another, but that's still no excuse. I have got to get it in the mail this week, I'm determined now! I hope to get to stitch a lot over the next couple of evenings & get it in the mail SOON! Cross your fingers for me! I'll post a pic when Rosalie (no blog) gets it. (waving at Rosalie - hope you're getting my emails now?).

Thanks for stopping by - Happy Stitching!!
