Surprise in the mail and a couple of finishes...

I received this little surprise on Saturday from Jill. She stitched this for me as a Thank you for our mini retreat weekend. It is "Friendship Sampler" by Goode Huswife. I just love it and she was very creative on how she personalized it with our initials.
Thank you Jill:)

I have been trying to finish the last of my 2010 stitching. I still have a few left but this is what I did get done this weekend.

This is my Christmas Fair and Square from Jenna. I finished it into an ornament.
Here is a pic of the back of the ornament.

I had this piece stitched up for a month or so and finished it into this box. It is a Blackbird design.
A view of the inside.

Another piece that I stitched at the end of 2010 and framed this weekend. It is LHN Alphabet Rhyme.

This piece was in my last post but wasn't framed. I went looking in my frame stash and found this frame which worked perfectly for this project.
This is my sixth stitched finish for this year. It is "Valentine Cupboard Keep" by Country Rustic Primitives. I stitched it on 28 count natural with Waterlillies-African Sunset.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching:)
