HOE Christmas Ornament from Stephanie

I have spent the last month in Colorado, arriving home early this morning to a huge pile of mail.  In that pile I found this beauty from Stephanie…

Designer: Lizzie and Kate
Design: Flora McSample 2013 Stockings
Stitched by: Stephanie
Stitched for: MarieP

I love small stocking ornaments so this really had me grinning from ear to ear. 

Thank you, Stephanie. You made this an extra special exchange! 


2015 the year of the Sheep

Let's start off the 2015 with an exchange celebrating the 8th Chinese Zodiac sign - The Sheep -

There are lots of charts and designs that have a sheep in them - so use any chart/design so long as it has at least 1 sheep, and the finish is going to be left to the stitcher.  

As with other HOE Exchanges linen must be used, and as with many Exchanges this will be a "no extras" just the lovely stitched piece should be sent to your partner.  

I'll be taking sign ups from today until  1/24/2015 and send out your partners names on 1/25.  

The mailing date will be Monday March 2, 2015.

To sign up just send the info to me -  edgar matt at g mail dot com:

Your Name
Mailing address
Blog info

Thanks -

Fall Exchange Has Been Mailed

I am so sorry that this is late.  There were extenuating circumstances that caused its tardiness.  Two of our cocker spaniels went on a tare, chewed up the patterns that I was stitching from, got into my threads, chewed up 3 cookbooks in a basket and chewed up 2 Harry Potter books on a low shelf.  So I had to start over and I was slow getting it finished.  I hope my partner understands.  I stitched a Bent Creek pattern called "The Little House".  I used DMC threads and finished it as a little pillow with 2 shades of beads around the pillow edges caught in the stitching.

Autumn exchange received fom Becky!

I Love the piece Becky. Thanks so much!!

Received Fall Exchange

I received a beautiful Fall exchange from Rosa.  It is a Nikyscreation pattern an she added crocheted lace from the 1800 on the bottom of the ornament.  It is delightful and I love it.  It is hanging on my little Fall tree in our entry.  Thank you so much.


It will be late

I'm letting the fall exchange people know that my exchange is late in arriving.  I am so sorry but I have absolutely been swamped in my teaching and duties.  Please forgive the delay.  I hope to have it in the mail by this coming Monday, the 17th.

Awesome Autumn Exchange

How exciting, I received my Autumn Exchange in the mail yesterday and here is the wonderful ornament that I received from Brandon….

Designer: With My Needle and Thread (Freebie)
Stitched by: Brendon K.
Stitched for: Mariep

This is a great design, one that is saved in my "to do" folder.  I am so happy that I can now remove it and file it away. The design is beautifully stitched on 40 count! I love the higher count fabric but am finding it difficult to stitch with those tiny little holes….oh, my eyes! 

Thank you so much, Brendon!

Autumn Exchange sent received from Kim

My autumn exchange hit the post on Wednesday - sorry for the delay!  I hope it will wing its way quickly as it has a little bit to travel.

I received my exchange from Kim at the end of October, but wouldn`t allow myself to open it until I was able to finish my piece since I knew I was going to be late!  But it was worth the wait, thank you Kim!

Happy Stitching,
