Luckily, I manage to do some Christmas stitching in between these two pastimes. I bought this pattern locally and substituted the Aida for Linen. It is easy stitching with blocks of the same colors.
I just love the reindeer, there are two of them. Not sure who is the designer, it is not stated on the kit.
This is Part 6 of the Mystery SAL hosted by Carol R. I had just completed Part 7 and sent off a picture to Carol. The SAL is coming to an end, the final part is due early next month. Thank you, Carol, for this beautiful sampler.
Next, an update on the HoE Exchanges. I received a beautiful ornament from Roberta S. This is the "Words of Christmas" Round and she chose a design by Bent Creek. Roberta's stitching and finishing are perfect. Thank you, Roberta, for a wonderful exchange!
For this Round, my partner is Margaret C. This is what I stitched for her. I am so glad that Margaret loves the Ornament.
I forgot to post a picture of the ornament I stitched for Jennifer in the last round of exchange. The theme was Lizzie Kate's Christmas designs. Here is Jennifer's ornament from the Monthly Flip It Series.
Next, some small finishes. I am good at stitching but not the finishing. I procrastinate and procrastinate and procrastinate when it comes to doing the finishing!!! My box is full of stitchings to be finished one fine day.
These two are freebies by Shepherd's Bush. They are supposed to be pincushions and scissors fobs but.... maybe....one day...
This rose design was taken from the Cross Stitcher magazine. It is a teacup pincushion.
I won a blog giveaway from Cathy L (see my previous post). This chart came with fabric and threads. It is a lovely design and I enjoyed stitching it. The strawberry thread keeper is also part of the giveaway goodies.

I bought this Peppermint tea from an curio shop. What attracted me is not the tea but the box. I love boxes and this one is very French! Isn't is lovely?
I hope to have more to show in my next update. Thank you for visiting my blog, your comments are greatly appreciated!
