Christmas SAL

One of the groups that I belong is called Stitch and Swap 2. Char has started a Christmas SAL. This is what I have chosen to stitch. I got this on one of my stitching fun days with meeting some friends in Crystal Lake and shopping at Welcome Stitchery. I will be stitching it on 32ct Vintage Lakeside color: Strawflower. I will have to get the ole magnifiers for this one. ;) I am really excited to start on it. Have a good week.

Here is the stash that I got in La Crosse when I went to the Cranberry Festival. La Crosse is about an hour away from Warrens. Just to give you an idea of the distance. Anyway, I found this shop online prior to going up there. It was a nice little shop with all kinds of fun stuff. In the picture you can see the different pamphlets that I got but there is a piece of fabric at the top of the picture that I could not leave without. It is a tea-dyed gingham. Have not decided what I will stitch with it but I will find something. I have my two exchange pieces stitched but not all the way finished. I need to go to JoAnns tomorrow to find some for my Harvest Exchange. I have the fabric already for my Lizzie Kate Exchange. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Take care

Lizzie Kate Exchange

This is the fantastic exchange piece that I recieved from Eileen. I love it. Thank you Eileen. It will hang in a prominent spot in my home.

Here is the wonderful exchange piece that I recieved from Marie. It was titled Harvest Time. The key chain is already holding my keys and the scissors fob is on the snipers. I love it all.

This is the first in a long time that I have posted. Since last time I passed another exam. Goooo me!! It was Technical Writing and it was easy peasy. I was glad of that cause I have the last 4 to do before I get more into the nursing "stuff". Algebra, Chemistry, Interpetation/Analysis of Literature,and Statistics. I am stitching on two exchanges. I made a trip to upper Wisconsin to Warrens. They hold the biggest cranberry festival. They had tons and tons of anything cranberry and craft boths, flea markets, farmers markets, and trips to a cranberry bog. I have never seen soooo many people at one event in my life. I overheard one lady saying "it was her first and last time there". I am not sure if I will go back but it was a good get away for me. I took some pics of a garden in LaCrosse. That is where I stayed. It was a bit of a drive -- about an hour away. Closet I could find. Well...... off to work I go.
Take care and happy stitching!!
