YLPS Round 4

Leeanne has received the Round 4 piece I sent out.  The design is from Book 48 "A Christmas Visit" and I stitched him on a rose pink linen using DMC.
A cute and quick stitch up that I really enjoyed, these little Prairie Schooler designs are such a joy to complete and finish up.

I know I havent been around much, but I have been stitching like crazy getting all my christmas parcels ready for mail out.  They are now all complete and ready to post tomorrow.  Unfortunately though, this means I wont have anything to show until they start arriving at their new homes.  So keep popping by as hopefully they wont take too long.

Until next time, happy stitching

Mary Jo Double Up!

Strange heading?  Well it basically means that I was given Mary Jo as my partner for two latest exchanges.  The first one being the Lizzie Kate Exchange Round 2 and the other being the LHN Ornie Exchange.  Here is what I sent.

Lizzie Kate "Bless Our Home" stitched on a soft lilac linen using DMC threads and finished as a pinkeep.

LHN Ornie was an element taken from the "Snowflakes" chart and stitched on ice blue evenweave using DMC threads and finished as a hanging ornie.
I was pleased that Mary Jo liked both items.

I have been madly finishing up some stitching recently, I have about another 4 items to finish up and be sent for various exchanges and xmas parcels.  The weekend just gone I managed to finish 3 gifts and make up some parcels.  Stitching wise I only have 2 other pieces to do now before Christmas, so I'm pleased to say that I won't be rushing around last minute to get things in the mail, YAY!
Now off to check out some xmas designs.  Until next time, happy stitching dear friends.

LHN Exchange from Cecile

I just had to share with you all this beautiful exchange piece I received from Cecile for Round 2 of the LHN exchange.  The design is the one that Diane made up for the benefit piece for Unicef and Cecile finished it into a lovely tote bag.  She also included a cut of fabric for me and some christmas charms.  Thank you soo much Cecile, I shall treasure it always.

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my new job.  My week went really well and it was really busy.  It has been rather exciting soo far and hopefully will turn out to be the type of job I have wanted to do in a long time, so far so good!
I also managed to buy myself a new camera today, yay, I feel soo independant now, not having to borrow one all the time, its fabulous!!
Until next time, happy stitching.

ASOE Fall Ornie

I have received my fall ornie from Tracy. She stitched Brightneedle Season Petites and finished it into a hanging ornie. I love it Tracy, thank you. Please excuse the picture, I dont have a camera at the moment and have had to scan it.

Here is the ornie that I sent to Tracy.  It is a freebie design called "Swirly Acorn" and I made a small hanging fob and attached a leaf charm to the back.

Sorry for the lack of posts and also commenting on others blogs, the reason being is ...  I have started a new job this week and life has been pretty hectic.  I cant believe how fast the days have been going, I've been so busy getting used to everything that time just flies by.  I am really enjoying myself though, and of course when I can relax in the evening I still have my trusty stitching to take my mind away from daily things. hehe
Speaking of stitching, I have been doing lots but I cant show anything for awhile, as they are for exchanges or christmas gifts, but I am nearly finished the stitching to be done by christmas and can probably catch up on some wips soon.
Until next time, happy stitching
