Pictures

Well, when I told you to stay tuned for pictures, I didn't expect it to take five days for me to get them posted - sorry about that!

Here's a snapshot front and back of the wonderful scissors fob I received from Carol for my birthday. She has stitched many of these from her Prairie Schooler Christmas Alphabet chart and I've admired them; now I have one of my own! Thank you Carol! (As I was taking this picture of the fob modeled with Gingher Lanell, wouldn't it be gool if Gingher came out with a Christmas scissors?)



Carolyn was the recipient of this month's ornaments in the Christmas Ornament Exchange group. I stitched this LHN design called "Paix" or Peace. This design was designed as a fundraiser for Unicef. I stitched this on some 36 ct fabric in my stash; otherwise it would have been a bit lrge (IMHO); the hanger is some wire that I affixed in the corners. I'm going to have to stitch this one again for myself!


That's all I have for you today! Thanks for stopping by!
