Fair Squares and an Ornament Received

Lynda let me know yesterday that she received the Fair Squares Round #8 I stitched for her.

I stitched "Five Birds" by Barrick Samplers. I have wanted to do these for quite some time and since Lynda loves all kinds of samplers, I thought they were appropriate.

July was the first month for the Christmas Ornament Swap that I am in. Staci was the first recipient. I stitched the Country Cottage Ornament from the 2006 Just Cross Stitch Ornament book.

I switched the color of the house to Sampler Threads, Red Grape and used Whisper for the sheep. This was a fun stitch!

I absolutely LOVE those squares for Lynda, they're really great! And lucky Staci for getting all the ornaments this month :) I cannot stand stitching with Wisper (I have no patience!), but it is perfect for the ornament.

You've been busy stitching up some gorgeous exchanges Jill (and mine is no exception!!!) I've been meaning to stitch that Brite Birds pattern, love how yours turned out!

Your mailbox is a treasure trove of lovely comings and goings! Love the ornament for Staci!

Interesting choice of colors on Winter's Eve. I guess the house should have been red in the first place.
