Here in Minnesota, it's been snowing on and off all day - nothing like the storms that they had in the Dakotas yesterday though! It's still too warm for the white stuff to stick, but it's just a matter of time. Lot's to share with you in today's post!
First, a small group of us did a Thanksgiving exchange this fall. Marie was my partner and she sent me this wonderful turkey ornament! The design is either Heart in Hand or Bent Creek and of course, her finishing is superb. Don't you love the brown jingle bells at the bottom? Marie spoiled me with many goodies. Thanks so much Marie!
On this same exchange, I sent to Jill (well truthfully, I had it hand delivered via Joan!) I stitched this Lizzie Kate design and finished it as a cube. I thought it might look nice on an end table or similiar. Hmmm...might have to stitch this one again for myself.
Jill also had a birthday recently so I wanted to stitch something special for her to mark the occasion. This fob will look perfect on her Gingher Roberta scissors, don't you think? This pattern was designed by Sharon and can be found on her Cross Stitch Happy blog. The colors complement the scissors beautifully!
Finally, Marjean posted that she received the Floss Tag that I sent to her on the recent HoE exchange. Many of you will recognize this design from Blackbird Designs. It was my first ever floss tag!
Before I let you go, check out some of these other great Thanksgiving exchanges:
Joan stitched and finished a pillow for Becky. (move down a little to the post from Nov 7)
Vonna stitched and finished this flat fold for Goldie.
Becky stitched and finished this pinkeep for Sharon. (move down to post from Nov 6)
Heather stitched a cute ornament for Joan.
Goldie stitched and finished a box for Carol. (move down to Nov 5 post)
Carol stitched a pinkeep for Heather.
There are a few more Thanksgiving exchanges in transit. I'll post links to them once they are received and pictures are posted!
Whew, that's it!
