Exchanges and An Update on Christmas Stitchings

This is my second post this month ha ha! I just have to show updates of my Christmas stitchings. Here is my progress on Elisa's Christmas Tree, love it! The colors are very christmasy - red, white, green and gold.

A closer look, I love that sewing machine!

I have finished 4 ornaments, two for Exchanges and two for my tree. Hopefully there are more to come!

The Reindeer is from the Cross Stitcher, a UK cross stitch magazine. I added a red button for his nose and a blue bell to his scarf. Cute, isn't he? The other ornie is by Eyrnne from my previous post. I hope to stitch more ornies from this design!

Next ornie is for an Exchange! My partner does not read my blog, so I am showing it here before I send it out. This design is by BBD in this year issue of JCS Ornaments. Hope she likes it!

The fourth ornie is already on its way to my exchange partner, will show picture only after the Exchange concluded.

Found another Erynne's Christmas design that I want to stitch! There is so many designs I want to stitch for this season but time is running out!!!

I joined the Stitched With Love Exchanges for the first time, the theme is Fall into Halloween. This is what I stitched for my partner, Spot of Autumn, by The Drawn Thread.

The goodies for the exhange!

Here is what my partner, Tiffy sent to me! Thank you, Tiffy, for a great Exchange!

I stitched this tiny design for my friend's birthday, it's a freebie by Danybrod. Purple is my friend's favorite color!

I love this design, plan to stitch more in different colors!

Happy Stitching until the next update! Hope to show more ornies and Christmas stitchings!

All soo lovely Ellen.
I'm working on Erynne's Christmas SAL at the moment and really enjoying it. I'm stitching it as one whole piece though, not individual ornies.

I lust love the little red sewing machine with its little reel of cotton.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, family, friends, and good food.
