All Posted!

I have posted the last of my exchanges today I had 3 to be finished and posted in December which I managed, I have even received one back.
In the post yesterday I received from Nicola this wonderful Christmas ornament from the Christmas HOE, this is the 2nd exchange I have received from Nicola this year I also had a pinkeep from the Summerhouse HOE.This is from Novembers GOS a prairie Schooler pattern stitched on 32ct Summer Khaki Belfast Linen with the recommended DMC threads.

Now that I have finished my exchanges for the year, that leaves me 3 weeks till Christmas to finish my Christmas stitching, I have been working on one piece for a while but can't show it yet. Alot of my stitching this year has been exchanges I have not really done much for myself I am going to have to be more selective next year as I have a big project to complete by the end of March so that I have time to get it framed by the beginning of May which is the Birth Sampler for my Nephews Christening hopefully the 2010 weekly Stitch along will help me to do this as I show my progress each week.

My Hubby took these 2 pictures of my dogs Whisky(above) and Penny(below) while I was making dinner they where waiting for any titbits that might come their way.
Unfortunately my camera has given up the ghost I am going to have to get a new one but I will wait till March when we are going to a Camera Show at the NEC Birmingham called "In Focus" I will have to do my homework and see what I want before I go as you can get some good deals but it will have to be a Canon as my Hubby is a Canon man, I will have to borrow one of his many camera's till then or get him to take my photos as he has got a Degree in this subject.

The ornament you received from Nicola looks so great. I love this way of finishing on the felted background.
Last year I had a year like you - just sticthing on exchanges. This year I have limited the number of exchanges I joined and I have managed to stitch a lot more on my WIPs. And next yera I'll try and be even more selective. But I can't do without because it's so nice to exchnage gifts with stitching friends.
