It’s here It’s here!!

My JCS Christmas Ornament issue.


I spent over an hour just drooling over all the beautiful ornys. There are at least 4 on each page I want to stitch. This is going to be soooo hard to decide.
I think I will see how much of the fabric and fibers I can find in my stash and that will determine which ones I start first.
I know I will do the Brook’s Books – Stitchy Claus, Cindy Valentine Designs – Homespun Christmas, The Workbasket – Christmas Forest and The Prairie Schooler, Inc – Frosty Fun.
I also have four exchanges. Whew, I'll be busy.
Now for catching up!!

Becky found out that I have never stitched a Lizzie Kate, so wonderful person that she is, she sent me my first ever Lizzie Kate Designs. She is such a thoughtful friend and her groups are such fun that I wish the whole world could share the comfort of good stitching friends.


I have already stitched Fright Night but not completed the flat fold so no pics of it yet and I hope to start Great White Pumpkin next.

This is Just Nan’s Fraidie Frog I finished stitching it but have not made up the orny yet . I've started the other JN from the 2008 Halloween issue but no snap yet.
I was supposed to stitch on my HEAD QS Morgana le fey last night but I just forgot and stitch on a Halloween ornys instead.


I am still stitching on Hanna the Happy at work. This is an old picture I'll do a new one tonight when I get home to show my progress.
My Blast From The Past
This is my attempt to catch up on all the posts I have meant to but didn't.
Hooked On Exchanging
"Summer House Exchange"

Gabi, sent me this beautiful stitching book. The design is from LHN "Season of Growth"
This is the most wonderful exchange, she must have spent mountains of time making this into the perfect gift. The fabric is a beautiful large stripe.

Inside there are pockets for everything, scissors, thimble and pencil, a felt needle minder, rings for thread and a pouch for the hoop.


Gabi, Thank You for such a wonderful exchange.

I love it when you leave messages. I hope to learn how to send emails back to let you know how much I appreciate them.
Have a blessed week
Shay
