I am also working on an ornament that will be a gift if it turns out okay, so no pics of it; but I do have pics of some exchange pieces:
This is the ornament I stitched for the Hooked on Exchanging Christmas Ornament Exchange. I have heard from the recipient that she has received it; so it is safe to post a picture. It turned our very cute - I just love Prairie Schooler patterns - their simple charm is just enchanting!
And, here is the treasure I received in the HoE exchange. I just love it! I had been intending to stitch it for myself, but never got around to it. Now I have a gorgeous ornie for my tree!
My DH has shown me an easier way to upload pictures; so I will try to post weekly updates!
Have a good week, Margaret

Here is Garden Marquoir - I wish I could take a good photo of it. The colors are so spring-like. I love it when a new installment is published so I can pull it out and stitch on it. I'm using HDF Luteous Green and Rose Quartz shades. I love it!!!

Here's a pic of my January ornie for the Christmas Ornament challenge. It is Quaker Christmas Holly by the Workbasket, stitched using mystery HDF silk on mystery 36 ct. Sassy's fabby. (Does this highlight my extreme disorganization???) Gee, I didn't realize how lumpy it is until I looked at the picture - I will have to massage it some to straighten the seams.

and finished it yesterday. I put off working on it because I wasn't sure I liked my color choice - I normally pick purply-pinks and greens; but for this project I picked bright colors. I have mixed feelings about how it turned out; but all in all, this was a fun project.
I have started a couple of the mystery SAL's that are out right now; but I haven't made enough progress to show any pictures.
A couple of people have asked about the seaside cottage I stitched on a Neighborhood Round Robin piece - it was part of a kit that I bought a long time ago; but if anyone is interested and they send me their address, I will send them the pattern.
Happy stitching! Margaret
