Picture walk...... And a PIF.....

...Greetings friends & stitching buds...



The decorations are coming down.....the organization begins.... I'd like to share a few photos.... A few sweet gifts arrived in the mail....

.... from my dear friend Elisabetta~



...and from that ever sharing friend Myra~



And, I'd like to share a few of the last of the Christmas finishes I did for fellow stitchers....Here is a random sampling of a few of them~








































Finally..... I was fortunate to win the PIF giveaway from Kim a few weeks back... I was so thrilled... The way this works is you take from the winnings anything you'd like... Then add to what's left from your stash and you host a PIF giveaway.... So, if you'd like to be considered, please post a comment on this post & I will drawing a name on Dec31...Here is some of what you will get~



And......


.... Until the drawing, be happy and stitching.....

Beautiful gifts. As always, I love your picture walk of finishes you have done and it is fun to see what others have stitched. When I saw my ornament, I had to get it off the tree and hold it. I felt like a kid on Christmas. So happy that is mine! I'd love to be entered in your PIF drawing; cute idea.

Marcia G said...

I always get excited when I see a message from Carolina Stitcher. It's like having a cup of tea with an old friend and catching up. Thanks to your inspiration, I'm going to reacquaint myself with counted cross stitch over my Christmas break from school. Please send some positive thoughts my way...hopefully, mine will turn out well. Thanks for your time and postings. Marcia

KIM said...

I wish you all the best in 2014--hope you are enjoying a nice break from teaching for a couple of weeks!!
