Since Trisha2010 is having technical difficulties, I am going to post the stuff I made for her.

She received a lot of needlework from me because... well.. I am not that great at anything else.

I've got to learn to cross stitch faster, because i need one of those sweary stitcheries for my kitchen.  Great job!

I recieved my fabulous package from lourapalmr today!  I was totally blown away!  I'll get pics either tonight, or maybe tomorrow, depends how they look without sunlight!  (stupid daylight savings!)

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

I love that cross stitch! I could have done with that last year! I was in the kitchen and saw flames from my living room reflected in my hall mirror. One of the candles had burnt down in a table arrangement which had gone up in flames charring our wooden coffee table! I was so shocked that I cut my finger with the knife I was using! Roll Eyes I can laugh about it now but at the time "happy fucking holidays" would have been about right! Cheesy

Um, and back on topic...Everything you made is so beautifully done!


It's business time.

Phizzy, that's crazy!  I guess that'll teach you to mess with flames and blades at the same time, eh? Wink

I agree that cross stitch would come in handy some times!  I love that elf!  It's like he's asking for a hug but how do you know he won't bite you on the neck?!  And I just have a big soft spot in my heart for the Grinch, that nasty wasty skunk.  I bet he still has an ornery streak even after his heart grew. Cheesy

Last night I updated everyone, so please check it out and let me know if I've missed anything.  Today is the final deadline for sending, so if anyone else hasn't sent yet (besides me Roll Eyes) please pm me. 

I will be going to the post this afternoon, alteredmommy.

I love the little elf!!  To pieces really!  The embroidery is great on both that and the Grinch!  Also love the cross stitch!  I could use that you know...generally with the holidays!  They're always so hectic and chaotic.  Smiley

Personal swaps???!?!?  Why yes...I LOVE personal swaps!!!!
