Advent Exchange & Stitching Update


Here is Day 3, 4 and 5 of my Advent exchange with Lorrie at A Stitcher's Snippets.  This is so much fun!
Day 3 was four pink mug rugs-love the fabric you chose, Lorrie.  And it is perfect for me and my girls.
Day 4 was an antique spool with pink lace for finishing projects.  I don't have one like this and will love to display it. 
Day 5 is a beautiful, coordinating drawstring bag.  The pink fabric really shines!

 
Here is what I have been up to.  Finally I found a frame for City Stitcher's Adam & Eve!!

 
And a wonderful primitive-style oak frame for Autumn Calls by Crabapple Hill.
Hopefully I'll have a photo of a new sampler wall soon.



Here is an update on my latest stitching.  Just over 2/3 of the Sheepish Designs Alpha Series is done! Loving all the birds in this design. The letters are a mix of cross stitch and rice stitch.  The contrast is wonderful.  I put 2012 on the bottom, so I'll feel the pressure to get this finished this month :)


And here is the latest on the 2012 Grills de Maryse SAL.  I finaly came up with something for the center besides Welcome to the Country.  I like this much better.  Did anyone else sign up for her new 2013 SAL? Click HERE if interested in checking it out.
 
I'm having trouble accessing Google Reader on my computer, but no problem reaching the blogger dashboard.  Go figure. I'll keep trying.

I'm starting to think that maybe we are related. Really. Seriously. I have City Stitcher Adam and Eve in my stash. Hope to get it stitched next year. We seem to frequently have similar tastes! Excellent frame choice!
