Exchanges received and a finish or 2

well, i have a couple exchanges that have arrived here and need to post pics. There is my Christmas fair & squares from Wendy Jo. She stitched Jolly Holly from Lizzie Kate's new tiny tidings and it is really really cute! And then there is a needlebook that Jayne P. stitched for me from the MAW (make a wish board). It is just really cute!

I have finished up an ornament, actually "finished", poinsetta by brittercup designs. I am donating this ornament to my LNS, The Attic Needlework for their Annual Breast Cancer Silent Auction that is this weekend. I really like how it turned out, using Jane Timmers lessons on finishing flat ornaments. I took a class with her in Myrtle Beach at the PALS Retreat this past Oct and love this finishing technique. If you ever get a chance to take a class with Jane, do so.

I also rec'd an ornament from Tracey from the PALS board. We did a christmas ornament exchange in July and my partner failed to complete her committment, so Tracey stitched one for me. She stitched teh poinsetta by brittercup over 1 and it is really really cute. I love it.

I also have a quick easy piece i finished last week, it is another Pine Mountain Pillow stitched for my Aunt (this is one from her stash that i did for her since she isn't really stitching much).

I have a bunch of ornaments that i am working on for friends of ours and will post them as i finish the stitching up along with any other finishes.

Also, i have been tagged by Michele and will do a different post for that.
