A couple more stitches...

It has been an extremely busy time around here~~~  My last finishing order is sealed in the box ready to ship out tomorrow...It has been so much fun getting in my fellow stitchers handiworks and finishing them into ornaments and pillows....I have been honored that so many of you trusted me with your valueables and gave me creative authority to "work my magic"....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Additionally, I was able to stitch a little over the weekend and this week, finishing up these two Christmas items.....Now to ponder how I will sew them up as a Christmas finish for MY house...

 Black Bird Christmas Tree
Victorian Motto Sampler
40 ct natural
AVAS red silk



Jolly Reindeer
Victorian Motto Sampler
40 ct Meadow Rue LL
DMC threads


I just love stitching Victorian Motto Sampler designs!!! AND, pop on over and check out Nancy's blog because she has the BEST EVER giveaway in process......Check out all the flosses!!! WOW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, this week, I was tickled to receive this awesome exchange from Lisa S....She had my name in the Hooked on Exchanging Christmas Box exchange and the box she made me is stunning!!!
Pop on over to her blog as she has posted lots of details about this design and box....


Thanks again Lisa for this beautiful addition to my Christmas collection of handmade goodies~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lastly, I finished up a lingering project that has been on my "Up for a challenge 2011" list.....
This baby is FINALLY done......

My Full Heart
Hands to Work
40 ct Pale Blue mystery linen
HDF silk fibers



I know now why I started this design years ago.... There is a crown!!! The 1 over 1 on 40ct for the letters has about shot my eyes though....Anyway, its done and I do believe this is finish 11 for the year of my old WIP's.... I was able to clean out my WIP basket quite a bit this year!

So, that's it for tonight.....Gotta hit the hay!! I leave you with a shot of my oldest son....He came home recently for a visit and I managed to take a snap during a UNC Tarheel basket ball game....
Men are SO mesmorized when watching sports on TV!!







Have a good one,

Faye
