More beautiful ornaments

My happy month as the receiver in the Christmas Ornament Swap continues! Heck, February has been just awful for me.... sooooo much of it related to this horrible economy and my being a provider for state insurance... well, so stressful, to say the least... my stitching pals have been the bright light in my dark month!

I will cherish these forever!

...This one is from BeckySC....

...This one is from Staci....

...And this one is from Edgar...

Aren't I just amazingly lucky??!!! Wow!!

KarenV - got your emails :-) I will reply, just so swamped with the other issue right now - not sure why my ISP is blocking you, but I doublechecked and you are on my safe sender list... sigh.... always great to hear from you!

Stitched on this week: Finally finished a gift for a friend, and started Hannah's Halloween RR (plan to finish tonight) **Mailed said gift today

How wonderful to have these lovely reminders of friends who care. I know I just love having a little something that takes me away from my stress and refocuses my attention on my friends and a little gift just seems to do that trick. The comments people leave touch my heart too, as I'm sure they do you.

I know things will get brighter. We have to stick together and be able to share our stress and support each other through this.

Enjoy your ornaments!!! Hugs to you!!
