Finishes and exchanges!~

First I would like to thank Becky K for the beautiful pinkeep she sent me in the Christmas Ornament Exchange!! I just love it (you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE reds!~) This cute JBW design was done using DMC floss on some linen from her stash.. Her finished pinkeep is beautiful! Thank you Becky! It is perfect~~~
I was the lucky recepient of this cute Halloween pillow made by Amy V of Florida at this past weekends PALS Fall Retreat in Myrtle Beach SC. Everyone had a great time making new friendships and renewing old ones! The pillow fit right in with my Fall goodies on my kitchen table!~ Thanks Amy, I just love it~~~


I also recieved 3 Christmas ornaments from the table. They are all so cute and made by Rene, Susan NC and Linda S...That cute little reindeer captured my heart and I love Bent Creek and anything Quaker...so, Cha-ching...I was an instant winner~~~

My entry into the exchange was the pinkeep by Monsterbubbles out the JCS 2009 Ornament issue. I LOVED this piece although it was funkier than most things I make....I found my beads at the local craft store and they really did accent to little squares that border the partridge and pear...When Fiona was the recipient it made me so proud....


Here are the three ornaments I submitted for the ornament exchange...The little beaded tree was fun to make...The sampler one is by Threads of Gold and the quaker piece by Legacy Designs is in the 2009 JCS ornament issue. They were all fun to make and I know they will all be happy in their new homes!~



Here is a snap of the ornament I mailed to Lynda in the Christmas Ornament exchange...I sent it out on Oct 19 so it should have been delivered by now....It is Workbasket Quaker Christmas using Crimson and Hunter by Weeks on Summer Khaki linen.... It looked rustic so I finished this one off with twine and few silver beads...Hope you enjoy it Lynda!!!
Well, sorry if this post seems jumbled up a bit...I am tired and need to get that long awaited cup of coffee to soothe my bones....Hope everyone is having as much fun as I am getting caught up in the spirit of holiday stitching..... I think I heard 59 days till Christmas.....YIKEEEES!~ Happy stitching everyone~~~ Love ya'll!~ Faye

Beautiful work on them all. All those gorgeous ornaments will look fabulous on your tree. You will have to post photos of them on the tree this year.

Faye,
Just want to make sure you KNOW that the Quaker ornament by Legacy Designs has a great new home & is much admired by ME! ;-) I was thrilled to get it & hopefully you will be able to see it hanging on my tree in person sometime in Dec!
Thanks again & hugs,
Amy

I love all of your ornaments ... the ones you received and especially the ones you made! Those cute beads around the edge of your Monsterbubbles ornament couldn't be better. I think you're having too much fun. Keep it going.
