Three Finishes

 Welcome to my new followers! I am very glad that you are here! I have three finishes to show you today.
The first one is Joy from LHN. I did the stitching a couple of years ago and it was waiting it's turn to be made into something and I finally made a little hanging pillow.

I also finished LHN's Poinsettia House and stretched it and popped it into a frame that I use for my April Showers piece. I haven't decided if I will eventually have it permanently framed or not. I hung them up together in my family room. I think they turned out really cute. ;o)

My third piece is one that I finished the stitching on last year and finally got around to stretching it and putting it into a frame I had ordered online for it. It is currently on my mantel in my family room.
I have been stitching on several different pieces and will show you those next time. I have also been knitting and stamping so I will have a post about those too.

Today is the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. So, I am going to go and watch the 1995 version of it and stitch and knit away. ;o)

 Yesterday, my darling husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary! We had a great day. Our oldest son came for the week to help us celebrate! What could be better than having all of my children home!! We headed to Tucson for dinner at Olive Garden! ;o)We celebrated as a family today but soon my hubby and I will have a day just for ourselves.  The card above is what I made for him.
 Me and my darling hubby!
 My children. They are 24, 20 and 8! ;o)
A sweet gift from my darling hubby! Now, I need a manicure! ;o)

See you soon!
Love, Heather

Happy New Year and Exchanges

 Happy New Year!!! I hope today is a lovely start to 2013!! We are having a nice day, a little relaxing, a little cleaning, a little stitching and soon homemade Chinese food. YUM!

I recently participated in my very first exchange with the Stitched with Love Exchange group ran by the lovely Lainey! It was a wonderful experience and I am thankful for Lainey's hard work and my wonderful exchange partner Dawn. She really spoiled me and I LOVE everything that she gave me!! Thanks again Dawn!
 I had Lainey as the one I was to stitch for and this next picture is what I sent her. I stitched her the Let it Snow ornament (but made it into a pillow) from the 2010 JCS ornament issue. It is by CCN. I made a few changes and I even wrote them down, but do you think I could find that piece of paper?!!! Oh, well! ;o) Lainey said she loved everything and I am so glad!

I have quite a bit of Christmas stitching to show you and two new starts for next time.
Thank you for all of the lovely Christmas wishes! I hope that y'all have a very blessed 2013!!!

Love, Heather
