I am going to leave the theme as Stitcher's Choice again. For those who worry that they may be stitching any ornament that the receiver already has, please do not worry so much (that was survey feedback) - every ornament is special and unique! Plus you can look at the blog for the receiver and really sort out what might be best for that person :-)

My Stitchers ornament was mailed last Friday. Sorry it has taken me a while to post but I was having trouble logging in. All good now. I am currently stitching a replacement Halloween orny for Ariane as my last one didn't arrive. Hopefully it might get returned but not to worry. Ariane, I will let you know when this one is on its way.

I just received the most darling exchange from Sarah Beth. It's from Little House Needleworks and is "he's a flake". She used Dmc Victorian Motto red and a new thread by Caron called snow in the color of pearl. Thank you for such a cute and well done exchange! I simply love it and it is on my perpetual Holiday Tree already!

Look at the beautiful ornament's that I received over the weekend. The first is such a pretty Halloween ornament that Ariane made for me. I love the way she finished it, and the pretty beads that she put toward the top on the hanger. Just adorable!!
This second was stitched for me by Linda for the Stitcher's Choice exchange. I love the pretty beads at the bottom that she used.
Thanks so much ladies!!!

Melissa made me this adorable Heart in Hand piece. I love the finishing -- I'll have to remember the technique to make the bow next time. It always gives me problems, and this is a good solution. I also love the cute little buttons. Thanks so much, Melissa! It's perfect!

I received both my Halloween and Stitcher's Choice ornaments in the mail today. Becky K. was my partner for both exchanges. We seem to be paired together quite often. The Halloween ornament is a Prairie Schooler design and the Christmas one if by Birds of a Feather. They are both adorable. Thank you so much Becky!
