Ornaments and a Couple of Surprises...

Tonight I finished my December ornament for the Bride's Tree Ornament SAL that I have been in since January. The ornament for December is to have a Santa, which represents Giving and Sharing. I stitched the Santa from Prairie Schooler's "A Prairie Year".

With this ornament, my Bride's Tree ornament set is complete, even finished! Here is a picture of all 12 ornaments. They are in order of the months they represent.

Thanks to Jennifer for organizing this SAL. It is a great way to get a set of ornaments done by Christmas. I had alot of fun with it.

My set will be going to my friend's daughter as a wedding gift.

The other day I received a pattern in the mail that I won. Karen was doing a giveaway and I won Lizzie Kate's "Snowflake Express Stocking". Unfortunately I have misplaced the name of Karen's blog. I apologize to Karen for this.

I don't think I can do this for this Christmas. I will have to stitch it next year. Thank you Karen!

Yesterday, I received a Christmas surprise from Staci. She sent me a scissors with a tag on it that has my initial. I remember seeing these on her blog sometime ago and thought how cute they were.

Staci was my partner for Fair and Square Round 5, which was my 2nd round on that exchange. Since then, our paths have crossed several times. Thank you so much Staci. I love it!

Well I think that is all I have for now!
