June's Ornament Exchange.....


Log Cabin Needlework's "Merry Christmas"
Stitched on 32 ct. coffee-dyed linen w/
Victorian Motto red, ST Maple Syrup & DMC 3051

offered this freebie last December and it is
this month's You & I exchange ornament. 
I did change the recommended colors and
love how it turned out.  This is such a nostalgic
looking design that I am sure I will stitch
this one many more times.

I am excited that this month's "exchange" partner is one of my new followers.......

Tracey


Hopefully you know the drill and know that you too may be an "exchange" partner if you are a follower...it's not too late.

Well...I'm off to the Hampton County Watermelon Festival, which I am sure will be hotter than hades.  Luckily, we will have some nice cool watermelon to make it bearable.
Have a great weekend and happy stitching...
