Waiting for floss ...

I've been working on an exchange and ran out of CC's Jakey Brown, lovely color by the way ... anyway here's what happened while I was waiting ... I finished I Love Reindeer by Midsummer Night Designs. I love this sweet design and I think Rodney likes it too lol ... Red Ribbon is my new favorite red ... yummy color ...
I Love Reindeer
by Midsummer Night Design
from 2010 JCS Christmas Ornament Preview Issue
using the recommended Crescent Colors

I've had this little design for a couple of years now ... I'm so glad to finally have it stitched!
Bent Creek Sunflower Zippie
stitched using recommended floss but on a scrap of 32 ct fabric

and because I was on a sunflower roll I pulled out this Pine Mountain kit I've had for a couple of years ... now I have to find a pillow for it ...

I heard from Elisa that my Lizzie*Kate Exchange arrived ... I was really pleased with this little pillow ... I think there might a few more showing up for Christmas ... I know a few chocolate lovers lol ...

Now that my floss is here I'll be working on my BBD exchange ... need to get it stitched and finished and out the door quick like.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post ... love love love hear from all of you!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for Red Ribbon ...
