A Last Post For 2011

Just in time to squeeze in a last post before the year closes.

Christmas comes, Christmas went and I had no ornament to show except those I received from HoE exchanges. Thank you so much for these exchanges. In the last Round, I stitched this Santa for my partner, Roberta Smith. I love Santa and this Round is the Stitcher's Choice. I hope Roberta loves it too!
Design: Santa by Prairie Schooler
Fabric: 28ct Opalescent Linen

In return, I received a beautiful ornament from Becky K. She knows I love Santa and sunflowers, so what better than a Santa with Sunflowers. This design is also by The Prairie Schooler. I love this ornament, thank you Becky for this great exchange.

I did managed to finish stitching Red Santa after Christmas. This ornament will be on my Christmas tree next year, ha, ha!

Here is a picture of my small Christmas tree with all those ornaments I received.

I have two last finishes for 2011. First is the SAL hosted by The Thread Basket and C Mon Monde. The SAL was scheduled to be completed by Dec 14th but I only finished the stitching on Christmas Day. I enjoyed stitching this sampler, a beautiful winter scene. Thank you so much, Valarie and Virginia for this SAL.

This one is an UFO, cannot remember when I started it. I love quaker, don't know why I put it away for so long. The design is by Nathalie of Jardin Prive, she gives the choice of 3 colorways.
