Ornament Exchange ......

I heard from Meghan yesterday evening that she has received the ornament I sent to her in Becky's Ornament Exchange group. Meghan is a young stitcher (yeah for young stitchers!) and on her wish list her some of her fav things were sheep and the color bright green. So.... I decided to get a tad creative on this one & Meghan says she loves the ornament & I'm glad she does! This is an Amy Bruecken design from the 2009 JCS mag. and I did the front - I added the red bow & tiny bell to dress her up a bit....
And used the design to make up a "back" for the sheep.... it looks like the back of a sheep, right? ;-)

Here it is side by side - the colors are more accurate in this picture actually...

And there we have Meghan's Christmas Ornament.

I have been very busy with DSL, Market, getting ready for the Pals Retreat that's coming up QUICKLY, trying to get things ready for that, doing some finishing for friends, and the list goes on & on. Karen & Nicole came over for a bit on Saturday & it was great to see them again. I don't think I posted about it in my blog, but I fell about 3.5 weeks ago & hurt my leg (and part of the rest of me), but my knee was the worst. I went back to the doctor yesterday evening (2nd trip to him after the first to the ER) and he said it's healing nicely. I'm glad, because I wasn't looking forward to a lifetime of knee issues. Just be careful when you vacuum & you're on a ceramic tile floor - trust me on this one - it's HARD!

I will hopefully have more pics to share soon. Hope you are getting lots of stitching in. :-)
