Today I received this most beautiful ornament from Karen! It is so beautifully stitched and finished. I am so honored to own this ornament, which I was lucky enough to win in her recent ornament raffle in her blog. It is very special to me for two reasons: 1) I now finally own some of Karen's stitching to enjoy and display proudly, and 2) Betsy Stinner (Earth Threads) is one of my all time favorite designers! I have been blessed to take several classes with her in recent years, and this ornament also helps me to think of her and those wonderful classes! Thanks again Karen! I will treasure it always, and it is already displayed prominently on our Christmas tree (as it will be for many years to come!).
And, I got an email from Becky tonight, letting me know that a little fob I stitched for her has arrived (the post if officially slowing down now for the holiday!). I have wanted to stitch something for Becky for the longest time now. She has sent me so many gorgeous hand made gifts over the past year or more... and now I finally got to send her something! I also was feeling she needed some cheering up! I hope it helped.
Stitched on today: Started a gift, and An Emblem of Love
