My Christmas ornament is in the mail. I used one of Sharon Bennett's little reindeer patterns.  I just love them and I never get tired of stitching them.  The pattern is called Ribbon Reindeer. Instead of stitching the ribbon with thread I used beads. I used 28count fabric which is was in my stash and used the suggested threads. I made it into a little hanging pillow. I'm practicing using Marie P.'s method of stitching corners. I'll post a picture when it arrives in its new home.

I received not one but two ornaments from Kayona for our Stitcher's Choice HoE. The reindeer is unknown but she added JABC buttons for pizzazz. The other ornament is a Shepherd's Bush design.  They are beautiful and I love them.  Thank you Kayona.

Halloween Exchange Sent

I have been gone for a week with work and work has had me so busy that my stitching time was very little.  I was late sending my Halloween exchange but it is in the mail and hopefully will get to a new home soon.

The pattern I used was the Heart in Hand autumn celebration.  I added the smile and eyes to the little pumpkin.  I love this pattern and have always wanted to do it so I made it for my Halloween exchange partner.  I used the suggested threads and I love the colors. 
This is my Halloween HoE from Sandy.  It is in delightful colors and I love it.  It is hanging on my tree in our entry.  Thank you so much Sandy.

Received Exchange from Leigh

This is the darling Santa that I received from Leigh.  She did a wonderful job and I absolutely love it.  I don't have a Prairie Schooler Santa like this one so now my collection begins.  I'm a music teacher so I love the partidge in the pear tree.

When my exchange partner receives their exchange I will post a picture.

Becky's Ornament is Completed and Delivered

Becky and I are good friends and we live in the same city.  I drew her name for the Stitcher's Choice Christmas ornament.  I stitched it twice because I messed up the first one when I tried to change it and ruined it.  So I stitched it again and we had medical issues in the family and that slowed me down.  But I had so much fun making it for her.  She has a cat and I chose a cat ornament that I had loved in the 2002 Christmas issue.  I changed the colors to match Tobey's colors and I used purple eyes and purple threads for the ribbon on his tail.  My photo is not the best.  I can't blame the camera, I believe it is the owner. :)

HoE Ornament Received

Our mailman missed my little package the first time he stopped and he came back with it and I am so happy with its contents.  It was my Stitchers Choice ornie from Carol S.  It is just precious and stitched so nicely.  She puts me to shame.  It is "Merry and Bright" from Erynne Chard.  It is stitched on silkweaver 36ct solo using DMC, WDW, and CC floss.
