LHN Exchange for Annemiek

I saw in the HoE blog today that Annemiek has received the LHN Exchange that I sent to her... I had no idea what to make, and then it struck me that one of my favorite LHN charts came out really tiny when stitched one over one, and the result was...

Blossoms & Blackbirds Fob

Little House Needleworks

32 ct Antique White Belfast Linen, DMC Floss


And to complete the exchange, I made sure to send her a pair of gold Gingher scissors so that she can use the fob... and some other goodies too ;-) Enjoy Annemiek - I was really happy to get your name for this exchange.

Tonight I started working on Michelle's spooky Halloween neighborhood RR. It is going to be like "Halloween in July" for the first half of July for me. I need to finish Michelle's as well as start my own for the new Halloween RR group... both to be mailed by July 15th. I have heard of Christmas in July, and now I have Halloween in July too. I am adding the bottom portion of Pumpkin Patch by Prairie Schooler to Michelle's RR. I don't know if Michelle wants me to stitch the moon above the blackbird that I stitched... after all, there already is a moon above the house next to mine... how funky do you want this to be Michelle? A multi-moon or single-moon neighborhood? If I don't hear from you, I will email you ;-) I have to remember to stop after work tomorrow afternoon for a skein of DMC 898 for that pumpkin patch beneath the house...

I also stitched up a pretty little Christmas ornament for the Christmas Ornament SAL today... but as I was finishing our (almost) daily thunderstorm came through, which ended the NASCAR race early up in Loudon, NH... and left the light around here too dark and gloomy to take a good photo of this delicate ornament... so will try tomorrow...

Stitched on today: Stitched a Christmas ornament, and started Michelle's Neighborhood Round Robin

The fob is fantastic, that worked perfect doing it over 1. Your RR piece is looking very cute as well. Halloween is my favorite holiday to stitch for, so I'm really enjoying the different witchy RR's that are going around right now.
