HoE exchanges and a birthday gift

I stitched this ornament for Janet
on the HoE Christmas bird exchange.  It's from a JCS ornament issue and the title is Twitter Blue.  I changed the color to green and used a skein of floss I had in my stash.  I do not know the name of it.  Somehow it, along with my JCS issue got lost in the house!  I stitched it on a 28ct opalescent linen.  I really like this design and have stitched it many times.  I finished the ornament after my Alaska trip and must admit, my heart wasn't in it.  Hopefully Janet will excuse my lazy effort at finishing. 

 Lisa S was my stitching partner for the HoE Christmas bird exchange.  This is what she stitched for me.  The description she included has also gone missing.  I do remember that she switched out the white fiber called for and that I believe it is a LHN design from a JCS issue. I am very certain that I love the ornament.  Lisa and I have been partners many times.  I always know I'm getting a great stitched piece when I see her name on the return address.

 Last month was my stitchin' bud, bestest friend, sorority sister, Lynn's 
birthday.  I decided to stitch the freebie, Sister Stitcher for her from The Primitive Hare.  I trimmed it in chenille.  It was my first time using this trim and find it very forgiving.  I love using it.  I believe Lynn was happy with the giftie.

I've been stitching on my HoE Blackbird Designs ornament.  I put the last stitch in tonight and will try and get it mailed tomorrow.  I don't want to be late with this exchange.  I love the way it turned out and hope my partner does too.

Guess that is all I have for tonight.  Sounds as if we are in for triple digit heat tomorrow.  Have a great evening and weekend.
