In this pic, the first one is by Karen SC & I fell in love with it when she had it at my house a few months back - so much so that I found the magazine it was in on ebay & bought it. Then I was lucky enough to get the actual ornament - woohooo! ;-) The one in the middle is by Faye NC and it's gorgeous isn't it? The last one is also by Karen & I love it as well. I did good huh? ;-)
Next are the two Halloween "ornaments" I came home with - the first is the JN that was in this years JCS Halloween issue & Shelleen NY stitched it - too cute! The Skeleton is from Kathy SC, and his arms & legs move. I am pretty sure she said this is from last years JCS Halloween issue, but I could be wrong so don't hold me to that! Again, I did good huh? ;-)
This is a precious pinkeep that Toni IL bought me. What she didn't know is that I've always loved this HIH design & have it & a couple of the charms in my stash and have stitched it a time or two. I was looking at it just the other week thinking I'd have to stitch it for myself one of these days even though the charm is for a " friend" because I really do like it. And apparently Toni was reading my mind - because here it is! I love it Toni - thank you! :-)
And last but certainly NOT least is a very special gift. My wonderful friend Susan TN re-charted Bent Creek's "Summer Row" to say Cross Stitch Pals 2009 & stitched this for me. Then if I understand it correctly (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong), some of the Pals chipped in for framing & this was a special gift to me this year at the Pals Fall Fling. I think everyone signed the back (including me, as Susan is a BRAT & told me it was hers the entire time) ! I wish the pic were larger, but you can click on it to see it better -
It's wonderful - I love it & I will think of all of you everytime I look at it! :-) Thank you to Susan for such a creative idea & a special gift to help me remember the 2009 Fall Fling!
Thanks for stopping by - Happy Stitching!
