Rudolph has landed

My ornament for Michele in the HO HO HO ornament Exchange has landed in WA. I had a blast stitching him and finishing him. lots of beads used on the pinkeep ornament. It sounds like she also really likes him, Michele just LOVES reindeer, and i changed the wording to be red since that is her favorite color (and i really did not like the green it called for, it was so off of the design). :)


My blogoversary stitched goodie has also arrived at its new home with Staci. I had stitched JBW's french country pumpkin and made it into a pinkeep. Enjoy Staci.



I have rec'd my ornament from Kathy in England but haven't taken a pic yet. This was from the ornament exchange on the 123 message board. I love it Kathy. Hopefully hers will land soon to her as well.

My LNS, The Attic Needlework here in Arizona has an annual Breast Cancer Silent Auction every November (tomorrow night) and I have stitched 3 ornaments to donate to it. Hopefully if i am feeling better i will be able to go tomorrow night, i have never been yet. All the ornaments, scissor fobs w/scissors, stitched boxes w/accessories, etc, etc etc are donated by stitchers for the cause. I believe last year they raised just over $15,000 that went right to the BC cause. I will post pics later when i take pics of them before i take them over today.
