Stitchy Goodness and Humor

I've participated in a couple of stitchy exchanges over the summer and into fall.  First up is a Christmas ornament exchange.  Both my partner and I decided to stitch and send early.  Since Karen said her ornament didn't have to be Christmas themed, I did something a little different.  Here's what I stitched for Karen V in MA:

Design:  Quaker Snowflake
Designer: Sandy Longan
Fabric:  32ct Sky Blue Linen
Fibers: Six Strand Sweets, DMC

Linked To:  Stitching Lotus Smalls SAL

The front was stitched with SSS Plum Parfait.  The back is the same linen with Karen's name, my name, and the year stitched in DMC 793 as well as 3 tiny snowflake buttons.  I made the cording with DMC 157 and 793 along with a bit of SSS.

She messaged me how much she liked it and said she was going to find a place for it and leave it out year round. It always makes me happy when I know the recipient likes what I sent.

This is what I received from Karen.  Aren't they so so CUTE?!

I finished this cute needleslide.  It's stitched over-one on 32ct fabric.  Can you say adorbs?!

 Design:  Christmas Secret
Designer: Just Nan
Fabric:  32ct White Jobelan Linen
Fibers: GAST

The needles are placed in a piece of  felt on the backside and the whole thing is held in the tin by a very strong tiny magnet.

I'm going to leave you with a bit of stitchy humor and truth:

Until next time...
