The last of my exchanges have arrived

So the last few of my exchanges have arrived. The first are my ornaments for Chris in our HoHoHo ornament exchange group. Chris was the first to receive ornaments for our group and her only dislike was pink flamingoes. SOOOO, the brat i am i stitched her her ornament then i also stitched a pink flamingo. LOL It turned our really cute and have to stitch him for myself now too. Chris seems to like him too. The other ornament is a quaker but i totally forget the name and don't have the chart right here.

My other exchange (the last of my exchanges for awhile) was the HOE winter quaker exchange. I stitched a freebie quaker snowman i found online but do not remember the site. DUH! I made him into a floss tag. Marie has rec'd her floss tag and really likes it. THey are sooo much fun to make.

Exchanges have landed

So i can share a few of the exchanges i have recently sent out.

I stitched this little ditty for Annette W for the F&S #11. It is perfect for a biscournu, i think.

I signed up on the MAW (make a wish board) to stitch something Prairie Schooler, any design any finish for Simone. So i stitched this Honey Bear (don't recall the name off the top of my head). I stitched him over 1 and made a tin topper out of it. I really like how it turned out and can see myself making more of these.

Also, for the Year Round Prairie Schooler Exchange I stitched USA freebie for Shay. I made this one into a pinkeep.

A finish and exchanges

Well i have a little finish for ME and a couple exchanges rec'd to share. I haven't seen that the exchanges i sent out have been rec'd yet so can't share those.

The weather has been gorgeous here in AZ, in the 80's, dropped to 70's for a couple days and going back up again. Spring Training games are in full swing (LOL) out here in AZ and that means lots of visitors. Baseball season in HS has started as well, so there are freshmen games we have already started going to to watch our son Josh play.

On the stitching front, i am trying to seriously cut down on exchanges for awhile so i can do some stitching for me. I have way too many WIP's/UFO's and really need to get them finished up. i am tired of looking at them in the basket next to my seat. So trying to stitch a bit on everything every day. LOL

Here is the finish for me. It is My Everything by The Sampler Girl. I stitched it on 40ct sand linen using Belle Soie Sister Scarlett. I love this one and am thinking of framing it in a very simple black frame.

well, here is the pinkeep i rec'd from Edgar from the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange. i just love it and it is already in the basket on my dresser with other exchanges. Thank you Edgar!

Here is the F&S i rec'd from Annette W. here in AZ. I love it but not sure how i am gong to finish this one yet. Thanks Annette!

Hopefully this week i will a few smaller finishes to share from my WIP pile.
