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!

Oh Ellen, so much eye candy in one post. These ornaments are terrific, I particularly love the Christmas Tree with all its tiny sewing and stitching accessories hanging in it. That was certainly a fun stitch.
Great exchange pieces as well.
Have a great Christmas time.
