Christmas Ornament Exchange

I got my HoE Christmas exchange yesterday. I love this ornament. It was on my to do list. Now I don't have to stitch it. I couldn't have done it better myself. Lynn also included some other goodies, a JBW chart, a Shepherd's Bush chart, some thread, some yummy fabrics and some chocolate. I even love the SNOW bag and the card.
Thanks so much Lynn.

It is Almost Christmas!

Not really, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. We do have a very short Christmas season this year though.
I have been stitching some ornaments.....well, before I went on strike I did. I have managed to get a few things finished.
This is my most recent exchange I sent off. I think this will be my last one for a while. It is fun to give and receive but, I don't get too much done for myself these days.
This is another ornament I stitched from JCS this year. I took an ornament I got at Hobby Lobby and made this into the center. Not perfect but, kinda cute.

Here is my Christmas tree at the store. Just a plain ole tree. Not too good of a picture because the lights are on and it is dark outside. Plain red balls, nothing spectacular. You would not believe the people that fawn over this tree. The business next door came and looked at it and looked at it. Next thing I knew, their tree looks just like mine. I have had several people tell me they went and got that same red webbing. Amazing, it is just a plain tree, very few ornaments, and the poinsettias came from Dollar Tree. I think it is funny.

I have a light week this week so maybe I can get some stitching done. Until next time......

Catching up

First up. This is the HoE floss tag exchange I sent to Simone. I thought it turned out really nice. It is a bit wonky and I need to work on the eyelet situation but those are minor details.
My apoligies to my previous post. I didn't give proper credit where it was due. This is my start on November Fairy. I haven't had a chance to work on it any more. I need to recognize Kaye for giving me the pattern last year for my birthday (5 more days), and Autumn for giving me the fabric. Thanks ya'll.
Thirdly, this picture shows what I received for the HoE exchange from Cathy. I really like this exchange.
I may be absent for a while. I have had a major change in my business and have had to make some huge life changing decisions. I am refocusing and concentrating on my business.

It's November!

I can't believe it is November already. I have been busy busy busy. I have been to Orlando and Dallas since I last wrote. I am mentally preparing for election day tomorrow. I have to work the polls and from what I hear it is going to slam us.

I made a new start last night. I started on Mira November Fairy in honor of my 40th birthday this month. I thought I might like to work on her this month.
I have also finished a ton of ornaments.

Well, off to read over my notes for the election.
Go Vote!
