Loves Me Some Lizzie Kate

Dear Santa, I Can Explain...............................



I came home to a lovely exchange package today.  I received these awesome Lizzie Kate pieces from Kathy.  She stitched the dec 25 ornament from the 2010 JCS ornament issue.  She said it was smaller than she thought so she stitched Dear Santa, I can explain...... to go with it.  I love them both and I'm thinking I'm ready to skip Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas.  She packed her stitched pieces in a cute stocking and Christmas fabric bag.  What a nice thing to come home.  Thanks Kathy.........I can't wait to display these beauties on my tree this year!


The piece that I stitched for this exchange was Lizzie Kate's Turkey Time.

I started and finished stitching this piece at the Pals Fall Fling.  I finished it as a flat fold/pinkeep.  You can't see it in the picture but it does stand up.  I really enjoyed stitching and finishing him.  I realized that for all my love of holiday stitching I don't have anything for Thanksgiving so I may just have to stitch one up to keep.  :0)

Thank you so much for stopping by.....after years of not having anyone to share my stitching with I get so excited when I have something finished to share.  I really do appreciate your comments and you taking the time to share in my accomplishments. 

Keep on stitchin' on,
Nan

Love how your turkey turned out. He was a mere bunch of tail feathers the last time I saw him! :-)

Your blog design is really pretty, too!
