Ornaments to share!

I've been wanting to post these for awhile now, just haven't had
the time. First up, Angela and I were in a private ornament swap
together. This is what I stitched for her. I LOVE snowmen!! So I
just had to stitch this one up. It's by Barbara Ana, from a new
booklet she just put out this month called "more Christmas
ornaments". It's stitched on 28 ct summer khaki linen with dmc
and dmc color variations floss (my own color substitutions).

Next is the ornament Angela stitched for me. I love it! And it's
a snowman (of course). I only have 4 cross stitched ornies on
my tree (including this one) so it is proudly displayed right in the
front! Thanks again Angela for swapping with me. It was so much
fun. We'll have to do it again next year!

And last but not least, the SBEBB ornament exchange to Cindy.
I had a difficult time deciding what to stitch for her. I wasn't sure
what the weather is like in Singapore. So I settled on this one
from Blackbird Designs. It's called "winter song" and is in the
JCS 2008 Christmas ornie issue. I personalized it with her initial.
It is also stitched on 28 ct summer khaki linen with dmc & sampler
threads. There is a better photo on her blog!

The entire exchange I sent to her. I even found a notepad with
the letter "C" on it!

Thank you so much for the gift, Laurie. I wanted to send you an email but couldn't find your email id anywhere.
Anyway, I love all the items that you have sent, especially the ornament, its so beautiful (^_^). Btw, weather in Singapore is hot and humid all year round, with occasion rainings. We don't have the chance to experience snow here.
