First is Val's Stuff "A Helping Hand" that I stitched for a family friend. Donna loves snowman & birds/birdhouses & this little design is adorable (I think!). My mom gave it to Donna today & said she just loved it. :-) It's on a 32 ct hand-dyed belfast (can't recall the color at the moment) & uses DMC & WDW. The bird button was supposed to be red, but I changed it to white.... and I just might have to stitch this one again! :-)
And this is "Sew Peaceful" by Carol of iStitch. I think it turned out just lovely! Carol gifted me with this lovely design of hers & I couldn't wait to stitch it. :-) It's stitched on 36 ct Antique White Edinboro with Anchor floss and as you can see, I finished it as a cube. I was saving that roll of ribbon for something special, and this was it! I made two very small changes to Carol's colors - I made the birds all red and changed the hearts to red. Hope you like it as much as I do! Thank you Carol - so much!
I have 3 more ornaments stitched that I HOPE to get finished by tomorrow. Wish me luck! I also have one more special ornament to stitch (for myself) that I plan to do either tomorrow night or Christmas Day. You'll have to check back to see what it is though.... ;-)
Andrea, I hope you check in.... here is info on the 2010 retreat we talked about this a.m. There is lots of room so if anyone else reading this wants to join us, just let me know. We have LOADS of fun & you'll make some wonderful stitching friends! :-) Pals Fall Fling
