Myrna stitched a sweet needlebook for me. It is very roomy and I can put a pair of scissors in it. She used Lizzie Kate's latest design. I just love it! And the goodies are a treat - scissors that Myrna says are good for cutting metallic fibers, a fob to match the needlebook, hand dyed lugana, cotton fabric, buttons and some marking pins her sister made. How sweet! Thank you Myrna :-)
I heard from Natty today that she received my Christmas package for the Stitching Bloggers Birthday/Christmas Club. I was Natty's exchange partner this year - I also sent her a birthday package back in February. For Christmas, I stitched her an ornament and sent her a Passione Ricamo chart and a wax candle tart in a Christmasy fragrance (Natty likes those). Merry Christmas Natty!
And for today's stitching.... Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. Not for too long, though. The silk was knotting up tonight. Probably the dry heat in our family room causing that. It is yet another snowy day here in New Hampshire, so the heat is turned on to keep us comfortable... the silk doesn't like it.
I have been happily able to grab moments here and there to read blogs, but have not been able to comment in them. After work tomorrow, I am off until January 2. I hope to get some blog reading/commenting in during my break! I didn't want my friends to think I am ignorning them. I have been getting many, many Christmas cards from so many of you - thank you! Mike and I are loving them :-)
