Stitching pals get-together....

Whew...what a busy weekend I had. Four parties in three days....if I am not in the holiday spirit by now it is my own fault! Saturday was the best, though, as I got to spend the day with some great stitching buddies. Amy hosted myself, Faye, Nicole, Myra, Lynn, & Miriam. I had the best time just "decompressing" with chatter and laughter. We had some great food and goodies too!

We had an ornament exchange and I recieved these two beauties.....

Stitched by Nicole

Stitched by Amy

We also had a gift exchange and Amy had my name. I love finishing supplies and she included some great goodies! She also gave us the little red sewing tin with a free design and the thread.

I just love buttons, fabric and ribbon, but the mesh tote she gave me is too cute! Now I have no excuse to finish some of my ornaments.

Another great surprise was from Faye. At the Pals Retreat back in October a group of us decided to do an exchange and Faye had my name. She stitched this wonderful Christmas design and I love it!

Faye likes prim just like me and she did such a great job with the finishing. I forgot to take a pic of the back, but it has buttons on it, which just fit it perfectly. It is already displayed on my hutch and may have a permanent home there!

Amy and Nicole have some wonderful pics on their blogs too. I have to mention Amy's Christmas trees....yes trees! They were so pretty and full of stitched ornaments. I have to say it was very motivating and I just wanted to get home and start stitching!! Oh well..maybe next Christmas. to stitch a bit. Happy stitches to you!
