Sampler Guild Christmas Party & Stitching!

Busy sewing, stitching and finish-finishing!
Here is the latest-

A no-sew stand-up finish of Cherrywood Studios A Baby, A Manger

My ornament finish of the Northwest Sampler Guild's Thread Challenge. 
Designs from Margaret Lee
2004 JCS Ornament Issue

Pagoda pincushion finished from an EGA program.

2010 Sampler Guild Biscornu tuffet (top and bottom) finished with the 2014 date and a beaded edge :)

Debbie Stiehler's American Patchwork actually in the box!

And the American Pincushion biscornu top and bottom-finished with my own variation of Debbie's design on the bottom.

The scissor fob for this set is all that is left and I am working on finish-finishing it now.

Jeannette Douglas My Treasure Box is installed in it's box, too! Now it's time to start the smalls for this one.
Sara Guermani's 2012 SAL is framed and hung.

This is our Northwest Sampler Guild Christmas Party.  I was sitting in the back and everyone was watching the ornament exchange.

Here are all the ornaments.  I stitched the biscornu on the middle row on the left side.  The ornament I received is below.

Show and share included a beautiful biscornu from a member that stitched it with her thread challenge threads!

Another member completed her thread challenge with this tiny sampler.
There is much more still to come before the holiday (including an EGA Christmas party) and I hope to be able to post again soon.  But, if I don't, I'd like to thank all my followers and the comments left.  They inspire me and I appreciate them so very much.
Have a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
