Good Things

I started this little ornament in January. And finally finished stitching it and *finish*finished it last week.

Dash Away All
by The Sampler Girl
fabric: misc R&R linen
fibers: DMC
I really wanted some little rusty jingle bells to hang in the corner, but sadly couldn't find any.

I had a few treats in my mailbox today! The first one is this darling Brightneedle fob I won from Stephanie's blogiversary!

I put it on a pair of scissors right away! The stitches are so tiny and perfect. Thank you so much Stephanie, I love it!!!


And the second treat in my mailbox was from marvelous Harmien; who really must be the sweetest stitchy blogger around!

She's already stitched all 9 of the current BBD stockings, and generously passed the charts on to me......Thank You so very much Harmien!!! I must think up an equally deserving revenge to inflict, LOL ;)

Well dear friends, thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to comment. But now it's way past my bedtime......so nighty night, don't let the bed bugs bite!

Your ornament is very pretty, and the homespun fabric is just the perfect compliment to the design. What a sweet spring fob! Lucky you to win this gift! Enjoy your BBD stockings, and I think Harmien should be crowned stitching angel for this gesture.
