This weekend I completed two items. The first finish is for the Christmas Ornament SAL 2013 This months theme is Reindeer/Candy Canes
This is an older freebie pattern by San-Man Originals called "I Love Candy Canes". I stitched this on 28 count fabric using DMC threads.
The second item I completed is for the Halloween Ornament SAL 2013.This months theme is Black Cats.
This is a freebie by Our Pioneer Homestead called Black Cat Inn. I used 32 Count Belfast-Light Terra Cotta fabric and used Crescent Colours "Blackbird" Hand Dyed Floss.
In the Last couple of weeks I've received some great RAK's from the blog Random Acts of Stitching Kindness. I received this package from Jodi. Look at all these awesome items. These items were on my wish list. I'm going to stitch the pattern for my Aunt in Texas. Thank you so much Jodi!
Then I got this pattern from LisaV. Isn't it the cutest? This was on my wish list. I would like to have this stitched for Easter. Thank You LisaV!
Then I got a Thank You card from Cathey and a small gift inside by The Sweetheart Tree called Seashore Fob.
In December Cathey was commenting on her blog about the new pattern Roses of Provence by Mirabilia that was being newly released. Cathey mentioned she wanted it for Christmas. Anyway to make a long story short I purchased her the pattern and the beads. Then two others pitched in. One purchased the threads and the other purchased the fabric. Another person or Secret Santa purchased her a gift certificate. How cool is that?
I think the stitching world is like no other when it comes to being kind to each other. We are always there for each other in the good and bad times. I love being a stitcher and I am so glad to be a part! Thank you Cathey for the card! Hugs to you!
I hope everyone's week is full of stitching goodness.
