Nice surprise and All My Reindeer

One of the first stitchers I ever stitched for was Kathy A. We have become stitching friends and e-mail back and forth. Yesterday the mailman brought a surprise package from her. She sewed a nifty little zippered bag for more stitching "essentials". Isn't it great? I love it. The fabric is states of the U.S. and on the back is Oklahoma! How clever of her to include it. Thanks, Kathy. You are indeed a great stitching friend.
This year I joined a Christmas Ornament Challenge and chose reindeer as the subject of my 12 ornaments. Well, here they are plus a few from exchange friends. I really enjoyed stitching them and have lots more lined up. The ornament display holder is from my non-stitching friend Diane. She doesn't stitch, but she has a great love of any stitched project. Thank you Diane for my ornament holder.
I'm still snowed in. Hopefully tomorrow the streets will be better and I can get out. I'm getting some stitching done though!

Your collection of reindeer ornaments looks splendid! I really need to try to stitch one a month in 2010!

Sorry about the snow! We got about 15 inches here and I just noticed that it is snowing again right now.
