A Gift and Some Cross Stitch

This post is full of thank-yous!  First, to all of you who read my blog. Second,a special thanks to those who comment.  A huge third to Veronica at the blog,"An Arizona Stitcher" I won her give-away.  I was very lucky. She is a great stitcher so if you haven't seen her blog, I suggest you head over there for a look.  In addition to the wonderful things in the photo, she included a gift certificate for $30 to 123 Stitch.  I use them all the time!! I already have planned what I will order. I'll show you that later.  For now, here are my goodies:

 The little buttons are a Christmas tree and a cute little snowman plus a needle slide, a cute little clip  and a magnet.

 Here is the beautiful sachet. She included this partly because I knew the pattern and chart.  The minute I saw it on Veronica's blog I recognized the chart.  Last winter I stitched "The Christmas Garden"  by BBD.  As I was stitching it , I thought that several of the motifs would make great little designs.  Here is one of the trees.  I love it.  Plus, the sachet has a wonderful holiday smell!

Here is the very pretty back with a wool tree. Thanks so much Veronica!!

My current project-  when I finish this , I'll have all the Word Play's finished except, December (I was waiting for this fabric), June, and Oct. I love all of Brenda's designs!

I'm sort of doing a 12 days of Christmas idea this year so all my decorations will be up for a while.  We are having friends for dinner tomorrow and my DD and I had a wonderful day in the city(Seattle) yesterday! I hope you all have a very good week-end and I had better say, GO HAWKS!!!!!

  12. Wonderful giveaway you won Barb!! I wouldn't recognize the tree like you did. It's a pretty little tree sachet. Great progress on your January word play!! I have only three word plays and I may start them this year...first one is February. I bet you will get lots of stash with the GC to 123!! Hugs
