Lots to Show

I have lots to show you so here goes:

First, here's the progress I've made on Blackbird Designs "WinterWonderland."  I haven't stitched much on it during the last month because I've been doing exchange stitching. I have yet to master the art of photography.  I do not know why the fabric appears to be three different colors.

Next is the 2011 Prairie Schooler Limited Edition kit "Comin' To Town."  I am enjoying this stitch very much.

A couple of months ago I mentioned a friend at church approached me about finishing a kit her friend had started before the friend died.  In a moment of weakness I said I would finish it.  My conscience got the better of me today, so I put some stitches in.  I had to work around the work already done, but made the most of it.
So here's the WIP:

I signed up for an exchange on HoE because it is a fall theme.  We are to stitch a pyn keep.  Fall stitching translates to a Prairie Schooler design.  I chose a portion of one of the designs.  I like the way it turned out. The design is not totally centered, but sometimes that just happens.

Guess I'll start  working on the Humane Society weekly column for the local newspaper.  One of the volunteers saw a woman throw a puppy into the fenced area of the shelter this afternoon.  I'm sure this lady does not read...the local paper, but I'm gonna let her know she was seen doing this terrible deed.

Have a great stitching week.

HoE Lizzie Kate Ornament from Hazel H.

I was thrilled when I saw Hazel's name on the package's return address.  I knew I was in for a treat, and sure enough, she didn't disappoint me. Hazel, whom I insist on calling Helen for some unknown reason, stitched one of the Tiny Tidings.  Isn't it a cutie.  We have stitched for each other several times in various exchanges.  She is a very talented stitcher, and I'm happy to call her a stitching buddy.  Thank you so much!  I absolutely love my little fellow!
