Giftie for my friend Joan

Better late than never, right?  I delivered this little pillow to my friend Joan on Sunday.  It was only 16 days late for her birthday, but I did at least get it to her in her birth month.  She was thrilled with it.  I forgot to take a photo of the back with the   our names and the date.  Her birthday is July 5th.  She loves the little Christmas ornaments I make her so I kept going back and forth between Christmas and Patriotic.  I'm glad I chose patriotic.  It will go nicely with her other little pillows.  The design is from The Prairie Schooler leaflet Stars and Stripes.  Now I want one for myself!

HoE Stitcher's Choice Ornament from Lynn

Here's Sir Tobias, my hand delivered HOE Stitcher's Choice ornament.  My best stitchin' buddy, Lynn had my name.  She stitched the kitty to look like my grey tabbie.  Isn't it cute?  I sure love it.  It is from the 2002 JCS Christmas issue.  I completely forgot to ask who the designer is. I have the issue some where, and can look it up.  Lynn made some modifications to reflect my favorite color and Tobie's coat. Both of us have said many times that we wanted to stitch this design.  She made good on it.  Thank you Lynn. Of course, I love it!

Happy 4th

I received this wonderful exchange yesterday from my stitching friend Julianne.  I absolutely love it.  In my thank you to her I pointed out that I had moved this design to the front of my Prairie Schooler stash to stitch.  Isn't it great that like minds...well, she may not think like me, but her stitching is impeccable.  One of my favorite stitching subjects is patriotic designs, and PS is one of my favorite designers.  Yeah, Julianne.  You did good!  Thank you so much.
