Stunning Ornament from Tracy


I received the most fantastic treat in the mail today! I am the extrememly lucky recipient of this stunning, delicate and perfectly stitched little stocking ornament made by Tracy! I am over the moon with it and just cannot wait until I can display it in about a month... thank you so much for this fantastic treat! (This was for the Christmas Ornament Swap. run by BeckySC)...

And, I really need to say thank you to all of you who sent such kind words and condolences to Mike and I regarding the sudden passing of his father last week. I know I have not been around the blogs or stitching groups much at all lately. Life took such an unexpected turn for me in 2009. I have felt so detached from this world of stitching and stitching bloggers, and for a while I was so depressed over it that I pulled back even further. It warmed my heart more than any of you can imagine to know that so many of you took just a moment to let us know you care. Thank you - I cherish you. Even those who did not stop by, you are forever in my thoughts. {{HUGS}}

Stitching on: Stitching on a small gift, and mailed a PIF today too...

Lovely lovely ornament from Tracey.
We have all missed you Carol. You have been such an inspiration to me. It seems strange not to read your blog very often. I hope you are well and will come back to us soon.

I love Tracy's skinny stocking...so cute! Lucky you.

My condolences on your recent family loss. I know how fast stage 4 lung cancer moves...tomorrow will be 10 years since we lost Mom...and she didn't tell us how bad it was until she was hospitalized.

Stay well!
