A Post Before Christmas

Countdown to Christmas.... I want to have a post before the actual day to show my ornaments. 

I am still stitching on my Fairytale Advent Calendar. I am very far behind and may not complete the 24 ornies on time ha ha!

And I have finished my Christmas Tree! 

The Christmas Exchange hosted by Lainey has completed with everyone receiving their Christmas packages. My partner for this exchange is Lisa V. She loves reindeer and I chose to stitch for her a design by Blue Ribbon Designs in JCS Ornament Issue 2012. I so glad that Lisa loves what I put together for her for this exchange.

I received my Christmas package from Clare from New Zealand. Clare made a flatfold for me and I love it very much! This is my very first flatfold! Look at the goodies and Clare is so sweet to send me something extra for my birthday on Nov 19th.  Thank you Clare for a wonderful exchange.

I have decided to stitch Dorothy Walpole for Nicola's Scarlet Letter Challenge. My chart and supplies have arrived. I am so excited and eager to start but will hold back until after Christmas. Still struggling with stitching and finishing ornies ha ha!

Thank you for your visits and lovely comments. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful 2013! I will be holding a New Year Giveaway, please visit again!

I will leave you with a picture of my Christmas Tree!

I have completed 3 of the 24 little ornaments. Hopefully I will be able to stitch all the 24 ornaments before X'mas! I plan to do the finishing on all the ornaments this weekend ha ha ha!

I received a wonderful ornament from Marie P for the HoE Stitcher's Choice Ornament Exchange. She chose to stitch for me a freebie by Plum Street Samplers, Christmas Coffee 2012. Marie's stitching and finishing are gorgeous! Thank you, Marie, I love this ornament very much!

Besides boxes, I also collect scissors. Here is a recent addition to my collection! This one is from China, a well known brand "Zhang Xiao Quan".

A beautiful gift from my friend, Sonia. It's for my handphone! She is great at patchwork and quilting! Thank you, Sonia, I love it!

Nicola is celebrating her birthday in a big way in 2013. She is organising a Scarlet Letter Challenge, to  complete one or more samplers by The Scarlet Letter. Please visit Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year if you are interested to join the Challenge. I have added my name to the long list of stitchers. The Scarlet Letter website offers a wide selection of samplers, some stitchers already have many SL samplers in their stashes! I have yet to decide what I want to stitch for this challenge ha ha!

Thank you for your visits and comments! Please come back to see my ornies in the next update! I will also show you what I am going to stitch for Nicola's Challenge!

Happy Stitching!
