Angel Stitcher

I had an angel stitcher and look what I received in the mail today.  It's a primitivebetty's design.  I love him.  And a great big thank you to my "angel"!

More Sttitching from me \!

 Every year I stitch ornaments for my great-nieces and nephew.  This year I chose Prairie Schooler.  I love how they turned out.  Their mothers said they liked them, but with kids, who knows.  These may be my last sets depending on how the ole eyes hold up this year.

 For the HoE Halloween #2 I stitched the PS bat.  Did a simple finish and used twine as the holder.  I think he's cute.  I received the little owl above him from "crazypurplemom" It's a design from the JCS 2012 Halloween issue.

I had Amy V-M's name for both the #2 exchange and the HoE Stitcher's Choice round.  I finished off Bird of a Feather "The Night before Christmas" and did a simple finish on it too.  The backing carried out the blue and white theme.  Amy said she liked both exchanges, so I'm a happy stitcher.
 Another Prairie Schooler.  I stitched this, I believe (memory problems again!) for Julianne.  I love funky little Christmas Trees, so pretty sure the tree here is why I chose the design to stitch.
Here's my Christmas gift from stitcher friend Mary Ann.  It is from the 2013 JSC issue.  She is a perfect stitcher and finisher.  I will probably display this one all year because I love the design.

That's it, all caught up.  Hope you enjoyed taking a peek!

Stitching update Photos in no particular order

This was my exchange piece for HoE Halloween #1.  Carol S. was my partner. To me Halloween says Prairie Schooler. I changed the colors a little, at least I think I did!  It's been so so long, I can't remember.  Carol said she loved it, so I am pleased.
I have a friend at church I like to stitch for.  She is always so kind with her praise when I gift her.  I chose a PS santa this year.  Joan has traveled extensively, so I thought this fellow might be fitting to stitch for her.  I like him, and so did Joan!
Julianne P. and I do private exchanges through out the year.  Here is what she stitched for me for our Christmas exchange this year.  She did quite well!  I love PS and reindeer.  JP has such a knack for finishing.  She always surprises me.  Needless to say, I absolutely love this Santa.
My Mom likes nutcrackers, so I stitched this PS for her Christmas giftie this year.  Now, I have no idea what I was thinking when I cut the fabric.  When I got to the bottom, I had no room left!  Up against a deadline, I roughly sewed the bottom on the sewing machine.  From a distance, ie, on the tree, you really can't tell I boo-booed to badly! 

More to come later!
