HoE Hometown ornament received and sent

I received the Vermont ornmament from Marie P last week.  Marie and I have been exchange partners before.  As a matter of fact, she was one of the first partners I ever stitched for.  In her package I included a package of Community Coffee.  She became an instant fan of it.  There are a couple of stores in Tulsa now that carries it, so I don't have to order it anymore.  But I digress.  The ornament is a Victoria Sampler Hearts of America design.  It's beautifully finished and has my favorite color in it too!!  Thank you Marie.  I love it.

Here.s the ornament I stitched for my partner Lynn W.  It's a very old design I've had in my stash for years from Mulberry Tree  Graphics.  Lynn and I knew it was bound to happen that one of us would be a partner in a HoE stitching exchange.  We are stitching buddies and live in the same town, so I personalized the ornament and change Oklahoma to Okmulgee.  I used the DMC called for threads and stitched on an opalescent mystery fabric from my stash.  I used wire as the ornament hanger.  I believe Lynn was pleased.

The weather has finally turned cool in OK.  I was in northern OK this weekend and had to scrape a very heavy frost from my windshield.  Fall is definitely in the air!

Sweet, Becky! I have a couple of those charts, thanks to Jenna, and I really must get them stitched up. :)

What a nice exchange! I love how you personalized Lynn's piece.

I don't mind cool weather but I'm not ready to jump right in winter yet!!!

Glad you liked it Becky. I LOVE what you stitched and will need to check to see if there is a Vermont one.
What do I miss about living in Texas? Community Coffee! They sold it in all the stores. :D
