Carol let me know she has received the exchange piece I stitched for her and she's happy with it. The subject for the Perpetual Ornament Exchange on HoE for this round was Santa. I chose to stitch an old design by Heartstrings, leaflet price $1.50. It is stitched on a 32ct tea-dyed fabric and I used the DMC threads listed. It was my first attempt at finishing a circle ornie. I believe I can do it, I just have to find a more efficient way. It turned out larger than I expected, but Carol says her Christmas tree can handle it! Here he is:
My FTT Stitch Red exchange is all packaged and ready to go. Hopefully I'll get it mailed today. Since yesterday was spent in the ER with my mom, I wasn't able to get to the post office. I must say, it's a pretty design. I'll post a photo as soon as my partner receives it.
I plan on putting the finishing stitches in on one of my WIP's this weekend. It's PS's 2011 Limited Edition Santa. I think I'll have this boy framed. Our organist at church does framing, so I may be able to talk her into it. We'll see.
Going to go back to bed. My sleep schedule is turned upside down. Have a great TGIF.
