I mailed my Ornament exchange today. It was a day late, but I wasn't able to get to the post office yesterday. It should not take long for it to arrive.

Roberta sent me this beautiful exchange. She stitched this Blackbird design as a pincushion and stuffed it with wool roving. I had to look that up. The little bunny dances in the sunlight, so I'll have to try it out today. I think it would be perfect for my windowsill at work. The Jelly Bellies have already started disappearing. We're pretty addicted to them in this house.
Jayne sent me this wonderful Halloween ornament. I've seen this design a few times and always wanted it. It's Halloween 2013 by Glory Bee from the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween special edition, stitched on 32-count cream linen. The tiny stitches are so well done. Thanks, Jayne!

Because these designs were such a quick stitch I decided to send her three.
What a wonderful surprise I received today when I checked my mailbox. This gorgeous ornament from Marie is just the most adorable thing I have seen. It is Trick Or Treat Stocking by Blackbird Designs and Marie has stitched it over 1 on 32ct!!! The stitching is exquisite and I can't tell you how much I love it. I took the photo on my hand so you can all see how tiny this treasure is. Thank you so much Marie xxx

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 :-)
