I have been blessed from many friends this Christmas season.
Have you ever seen a Christmas cactus with both pink and white blooms? This is my first time. It is beautiful. It was my table's centerpiece at the Evergreen EGA Christmas party last Sat. I won it!
I also got a beautiful, large, and lined project bag from my friend Lorrie at A Stitcher's Snippets. It already has a project in it :) Thank you, Lorrie!
At the top of the project bag is a little Santa face beeswax. It was part of my goodie bag at the Northwest Sampler Guild Christmas party.
I participated in two ornament exchanges. This is the ornament I made for the Sampler Guild exchange. It is an old Prairie Schooler design. I received the adorable little red Santa at the top of the picture above.
I don't have a picture of the one I stitched for the EGA exchange but the green needlepoint design on the bottom right of the picture above is the one I received. It reminds me of a Laura Perin design, but don't know for sure if it is.
Ruth over at The Musing Badger sent me a consolation prize from her giveaway. A Belle Soie silk and a Carries Creation cotton floss. Thank you, Ruth!
The lady bug and the red jar are a thank you gift from outgoing EGA president, Carolyn.
And the two patterns were at my place setting at the Christmas party!
I so appreciate the wonderful friends I have made in the stitching world,both locally and online. Thank you for taking the time to stop by my little blog and leave comments. It means so much to me to read them.
Here is the latest on Timeless Tomato. It is amazing how fast it is moving along. I am trying to devise a way to add my initials and will work on that more today.
I hope everyone of you has a safe, blessed and peaceful Christmas.
I'll post again in a few days with an update about my 2012 Crazy January Challenge!
