Here is Fred, finally. Took me at least a year, probably more--
I should have known that I would stall out on that border! This
is why I don't stitch traditional samplers, though I do love them.
I don't know what to do with him now--he will probably be framed at some point in time--but at least he's done!
And here is the piece I received from Kathy A. for the Seasonal (Winter) Exchange--JBW Snow Globe finished as a lovely pillow. Thank you Kathy, I love it and can't wait to display it next Christmas! As I write this, it occurs to me that (once again) I forgot to take a picture of the exchange piece that I stitched before it was mailed. Does anyone else have this problem? I am constantly begging my partners for pictures of things. Oh well, their pictures are usually better than mine anyway :)
I am trying to squeeze in one more WIP for January before I pick up Snow Garden again. This is LHN's Red House in Winter which I realize does not look very red lol. I am hoping for a quick finish...well, I can hope anyway! It seems that whenever I think I'm going to finish something soon it end up dragging on for weeks...
BTW, I'm sorry about the lack of comments on others' blogs lately. I still do the majority of my blog reading at work (it's about the only time I can count on having computer access) but can't sign in to Google, sooo... I still do read blogs faithfully, but can't do much else.
That's it for now. Looking back over past posts I noticed that I had planned in November to have a big birthday/100 follower giveaway, which obviously never happened, but I will put together something in the near future. Until next time and thank you all for your comments!
