Tobiecat's Ornament

I finished this little ornament this morning.  It was in the JCS Halloween issue and is a JBW design.  The 28ct Fabric was in my stash and used DMC black.  I call it Tobiecat's ornament for my cat Tobie.  It worked up very fast.  I really enjoy using the eyelash yarn as a trim. 

Still stitching on BBD's Halloween Eve.  I'll put it up in a few days and switch to something else, but for now it is an easy stitch.

I finally broke down and had the A/C-Heat Tech come service my heater for cool weather.  I put it off as long as I could.  The A/C is still running in my house, but wanted to be ready...just in case it turns cool.

Have a good day.

Exchange from Julianne

Julianne and I have been exchanging Halloween/autumn pieces for a few years now.  This is what I received from her this week.  She always chooses such great designs to stitch from Prairie Schooler.  Don't you just love this one?  I certainly do.  Thank you so much,

Julianne.  I put mine in the mail to her Saturday but forgot to take a photo.

I have been stitching a little this week.  I'm working on  Blackbird Designs Halloween Eve.  I won't get it finished by the 31st, but it is an easy design to work with.  Easy is good!

Have a great stitching week.

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!
