See, I have been stitching! And a GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been doing some stitching and some embroidery over the past few weeks. Here are some of my finishes......
First are two ornaments by Jardin Prive' - I like this one so much I've already stitched it twice, once as a gift & once for the exchange at the stitch in last weekend. Nicole has that one and the gift was mailed today! I think they're cute... love this design & I plan to stitch it again!


Next is the 2009 Santa from Homespun Elegance, which I stitched for myself. I like how he turned out and he's on my tree! (the red isn't really as bright as it looks - the pic is a little "off").

And here are two things I made as gifts - the recipients already have them! 
Lizzie Kate's Ho Ho Ho Scissor Case (and scissors!)

Shepherd's Bush "Our Hearts" (the back is stitched too!)

Last but not least we I have made more than a couple embroidered ornaments, all have been given away so far & I have several more to finish & get mailed - better late than never, right? I have enjoyed making them & I hope the recipients will like them as well. I have one "extra", and I am going to give it away to someone who would like to have it, so if that's you, leave a comment that you'd like to win and I'll draw a name from the entries next week. It is a snowman if that helps at all!



There has been lots going on here with business, family, the holidays, etc, so I haven't spent much time on blogs keeping up. Hope you are all well & having a great December so far. Check back soon for more pics!

Happy stitching!!!

My daughter had been crosstitching since 2 years ago. It's nothing like yours. She's more to our local pattern that is Borneo. Some of her finishes is used as a decoration in the local garment. I believe that you'll love to see some of her pieces.

Amy, I would love to have a chance to win. Any ornament by you would be a treasure. I have a metal tree that I put my ornaments that were won at MB years ago. Chris was sweet enough to get them for me. I wish you and Ray a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year.
Love,
Marie
