A finish and surprises...

Trying to do a little better job of posting plus I was super excited to get this finished. It was a gift for our Youth Pastor at our church....belated birthday present. Did my own pin and tap framing too.

The pattern is from and is a freebie. There is a Spanish version also for $4.00 that I'm going to attempt in shades of blue. (Sweetie Man is fluent in Spanish) I did this one with Crescent Colors..specifically Ruby Slippers. The pattern on the site shows various DMC reds. I don't usually work on aida but this is 16ct and fit nicely in the 10 X 14 frame.
Below is a picture of Pastor Donna getting it. Her FAVORITE color is RED. I think she liked it, don't you?

Next is an BEAUTIFUL cross stitched box I recieved from Aubree in a "For The Birds" Exchange with the HOE group. The picture does not do it justice. I was so excited to recieve this. Those ladies in that group are fabulous stitchers to say the least.

The inside was just as beautiful inside with a lovely set of pins which I use all the time for counting stitches and squares. Thank you so much for this lovely exchange, Aubree.

A couple of swap bot exchanges I received. This is the CUTE Strawberry Dotee I received on Swap-Bot. I've got to get my butt in gear and finish mine to send next week...I'm so last minute.

This was the Denim and Lace Dotte Cutie I received on Swap-Bot. I'm in such a dotee mood lately. Just love this little dolls!

Well, that's about it. Playing nurse this weekend as Sweetie Man has a bit of a viral infection, but he's under doctor's care and I think he'll be just fine. I'm confining him to bed for most of the weekend so that means more stitching time for me as I tend to the till next time, yinz crazy guys!
