An Exchange at Christmas

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday morning so far.  It haven't started so well as I having some back pain which seems to be getting worse as the day go on.  However, as promised, I'm back to show what transpired while was away from my blog.  There was a Christmas exchange at the HoE and we had to stitch a Christmas ornament for our partners.  I chose a design by Lizzie Kate, Inc. taken from the Just Cross Stitch 2006 Christmas issue to stitched for my partner Shalotte in the US. It was my first Lizzie Kate design which I did with little modification to the pattern. Shalotte seemed to like the ornament which I thoroughly enjoyed stitching for her.

Designer: Lizzie Kate, Inc.
Design: Happy Holidays
Fabric: 28 ct Creame eveanweave
Threads: DMC recommended
Finish: Christmas ornament for HoE Christmas Exchange

I received my Christmas exchange from Janet also in the US.  She stitched for me "Winston the Snowman" by the Trilogy on 28 count Cashel linen in "Flax".  She used Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Art.  I thought it was a cute ornament and I thank Janet very much for stitching him for me.  I think he's probably the first snowman to arrive in Barbados without melting in this heat, lol!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy stitching!

Thank you for stopping by!
