New ornament recieved and a WIP~~

I recieved this cute LHN ornament in the mail today from Julianne in the Christmas Ornament Swap!!...I love the 32 ct vintage linen and the muted overdyes... Thanks Julianne! You did a wonderful job!~ I love it!

For any of you out there who LOVE Quaker like I do, you might recognize my WIP called Quaker Harmony by My Big Toe....I have neglected it and it really is about half done! No sense in not finishing this one on off! So, with any luck, I hope to get some major stitch time in and do just that~~ Will keep you posted!

I would like to pause a moment and thank so many of you that frequent my blog and take the time to post comments. I truly am humbled by all of your kind words. I still consider myself a newbie at blogging having started in May'09, but know that I am so enriched with many of your friendships now through our blogs. Again, thanks for your support and here's hoping you all get some restful stitching time this week! Love to all, Faye

What a beautiful finish on the ornament!

I just had to pull up my wish list and check - yep, there's Quaker Harmony! I knew I was familiar with this piece, but wasn't sure if I purchased it yet or not. Now, I may have to get myself together and head to the store!

Sherry said...

Love the ornament and the WIP is just lovely! One of my favorites. I can't wait to see the finish.

Deb said...

The ornament you received is beautiful. And your Quaker is beautiful too. Love the colors in it and think that it would definitely be a sin not to finish it - those colors make it a very striking piece.

Kathy said...

Beautiful ornament. I like the way she finished it too.

Love, love, love your wip. I have this in my stash somewhere. :)

Michelle said...

Jennifer said...

Thanks for your support as well. I'm so glad that we have met, even if it is only via the internet.

I really love your Quaker wip. The words are just so.......well, they are just hitting me in the right place at the moment. I've put it on my wish list (thanks for the enabling....btw, are you using the origianal colors or is it a conversion?). I can't wait to see it finished.

Sherri said...

The ornament you received is beautiful! Since I'm out of the loop now, I haven't seen Quaker Harmony. I love it, yours is looking fantastic.

Faye, you thanked everyone for visiting your blog and posting comments. Well, I want to thank YOU for sharing your work with us! You and many others inspire me to go much further with my stitching than I would have without seeing all this wonderful stuff on the Internet.
Happy New Year!
