HAPPY DANCING!!!!!!

Last year about this time myself and my stitching friends started to stitch "My Favorite Things Stitching Basket" by With my Needle. We started out like gang busters and one of the girls finished her stitching right away. Well we have decided that we should try to get the stitching finished so we can have a finishing day---Well tonight I did just that. I am so happy I thought I should be doing the happy dance!!!! Here is a pic of the finished stitching:I finished the pocket and lining portion this weekend. Now we just need a finishing day:)

I also needed to post the Winter House Exchange I gave to Jill, as she was my partner and I just hand delivered it.


I stitched LHN blessed are the meek and made it into a box. I also added a La D Da chart from her wish list and some finishing goodies and note cards. I enjoyed stitching this and may have to do one for myself.

I just heard that Laurie received her ornament for the ASO exchange. I stitched a part of the Trilogy's Winterlogy. Another fun stitch.

What a neat basket and ornament! I am so envious regarding the finishing you do on so many of your projects. I can cross stitch, but I can't sew worth beans. And here you do both so well!

Your Winter exchange was certainly highly appreciated by Jill, great stitching and great goodies.
And the ornament is just amazing, the simple word Winter can look so great!
