Twice in one day

I went almost two weeks without posting and now I've got two in one day! Sorry to pester you guys!!! Becky let me know that she's received the ornament I stitched her for the Christmas Ornament Swap. This swap was Becky's brainchild and she is the final recipient for this year long exchange. Thank you so much Becky!!!

I really adored the ornie I sent her...it was a teensy bit hard to send it away, LOL ;) But no matter, I WILL be stitching this for myself. I'm so glad you like it Becky! This was a chart gifted to me by my sweet friend Carolyn.

Ok, that really is it for me today. Thanks for stopping by and for all of your sweet comments!

Staci,

Your ornament for Becky is a delight. As always, your floss tags are just as perfect as they are pretty.
