December and finishes

Well it is halfway through December and i am finally posting. LOL I am so far behind on my posting that i don't know if i will remember everything i have finished recently.
First up are the two ornaments that I had stitched/finished for the Attic's annual Breast Cancer Silent Auction here in Arizona. This was the first year I was not sick and was able to attend. It was so amazing to see all of the beautiful pieces everyone submitted, etc. and to get caught up in the bidding as well. :)

I did bid on a few items and won 3 of them. I got a little pinkeep, a Russian doll ornament/scissor keep with Kelmscott gems scissors and a beautful Quaker Sampler finished and framed. I don't have a pic of the framed sampler yet, but will soon.

Finally, here is the piece that i had sent to Jen for our personal exchange. We chose to do a Blackbird Designs exchange. This design i stitched is from the Honeysuckle Manor book and the pin cushion is an alphabet i rec'd at the BBD retreat in July at the Silver Needle.

I also have my piece here that i rec'd from Sharlene from the LK exchange. She stitched Fall squared for me and it turned out gorgeous.

Also, here is my finished Fall exchange piece I stitched for the HOE Fall exchange for Lisette. It is by Twisted Threads and over 1 on gingham.
The following pictures are finishes that i stitched over the last couple years and have finally finished them into pillows. Simply Love (don't remember the designer) using a pretty paisley fabric, Believe by Sampler Girl and Dog Hair by My Big Toe designs
