Winter Ornie from Joan

It is a cold, snowy day today here in my little part of Massachusetts. The kids had no school due to the 8 inches or so of snow we got. Now we're getting freezing rain on top of it. oh joy! Our local
community college was also closed today (which is where I'm working for the next few weeks).

So I had some extra time today and thought I'd share with you the gift I got over the weekend.
I received my winter ornament from Joan for the ASOE. Isn't he just the cutest thing ever! It's from Trilogy called Winterlogy. Just look at the beading around the edges. The hanger is all beads too! Wow! I showed it to DD (who's 10) right away. She's very interested in my stitching.
Joan stitched on both sides. Here's the other side. So perfectly stitched. I love it-thanks Joan!My winter ornie is on it's way to you Joan, so watch your mailbox! It should arrive Saturday!
I'm currently stitching on my Frosty Friends exchange for the SBEBB. Stay warm everyone!

Lizzie Kate for Carol

Carol sent me the most wonderful email letting me know she
had received her HOE Lizzie Kate exchange from me. She could
not believe this was my first box type finish.

Lizzie Kate- "winter wishes"
Stitched on 28 ct hand dyed (by me) monaco
with dmc, sampler, & wdw threads, & a snowflake button

Here is the inside of the wooden box. First I mounted
batting onto cardboard, then covered it with this snowman
fabric. Which is really sparkly, click on photo for a closer

The enitre exchange, including the goodies. I made the
little snowman tissue holder! I like to give them as gifts.
They are so handy. I don't know about you but I'm always
in need of a kleenex when I'm out and about!

I am currently putting the finishes touches on a
winter ornie for the stay tuned!
Thanks for visiting!

Prairie Schooler from Cyndi

This week I received a cute little "spring themed" magnet from
Cyndi for the Year Long PS exchange. It used to be one of their
mini freebie charts. Thanks Cyndi, I love it! It went right on my
fridge the minute I opened it!
Oh how I long for Spring and warm weather. I'm sick of these frigid
New England winters. Where the temp dips down into the single
digits, or even sometimes below 0. We had a heat wave today-LOL,
it was a whopping 38*degrees!
Stay tuned, I am waiting for a certain someone to receive their Lizzie
kate exchange and then I can post it! Till then, thanks for stopping by!
