A reindeer for Marie

Marie has just written to let me know that she has received the Christmas ornament that I just sent off to her for the HoE Stitcher's Choice Exchange... so glad she likes it. The chart is OOP and after I stitched it and had it ready to ship, I found myself wondering if she already may have this one.... shhhh, I am not going to ask her ;-)

Halloween Ornament from Amy

I received this really adorable, scary, charming wee ornament from Amy this morning for the current round of the HoE Halloween Ornament Exchange.  I love this little cutie.  It is from Prairie Schooler's Heads Up! leaflet.  She stitched on rather high count fabric, appears to be 40 ct.  I took it outside to take a photo 1) for good lighting, and 2) because I thought it would look spooky hanging on my currently very leafless honeysuckle bush.  But it is too windy outside to do that.  Anyhoo, I just love this great ornament and will cherish it forever. Thanks again Amy :-)

Halloween Ornament for Linda

I saw in the HoE blog that Linda received the Halloween Ornament that I sent off to her. I took this photo mere moments before a surprise snowstorm (over 6") fell on Saturday. Glad I did not wait a minute or two longer... knew I felt a tiny snowflake on my face when I was getting the camera ready...whew! Fun ride to the PO, but all turned out just fine ;-)
