It has been a busy week before Christmas. We had a bit of winter weather on Friday morning which cancelled school. I ran into several parents who said their kids cried when they found out school was cancelled. Of course, Christmas parties were scheduled for Friday.
It has also been a busy week for deliveries. Edgar was my exchange partner this year in the Friends Stitching Through the Seasons exchange. Here is a snap of what he sent. I apologize if my pictures are missing a few items. I dismantled the box before I got pictures. :-) Thanks for a great year of packages Edgar.
Here is a pictures of the stitched piece I sent my partner Michelle.
I didn't get a pic of the other items I sent but I love this little stocking.
Christmas Stocking Ornament
Hands to Work
Karen and I do several exchanges throughout the year.
She outdid herself with our Christmas exchange.
She stitched the companion ornament to the piece I just finished which you can see here.
The boxes are full of finishing supplies and some yummy chocolate
covered pretzels (which didn't last long).
Below is the piece I stitched for Karen.
Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe had a generous month of Christmas giveaways on her blog. I was the lucky winner one day. I received this lovely assortment of her hand dyed floss in red.
I love Nancy's floss and trimmings. You really should check out her site. She is a pleasure to order from and provides great customer service, not to mention the great products.
Thank you, Nancy!
My friend Michele blessed me with a Christmas package that contained this birdie ornament.
I am all about birds right now and I love this design.
Thank you , Michelle!
Thank you for stopping by and spending a little bit of your day with me.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
