A Thank You and a Cross Stitch Update!

First, thanks to all of you who looked at my Christmas quilt , the bed, and the sampler.  As usual, bloggers are the nicest people and say such kind things.  To prove that, I received the cutest little bunny ornament from Jamie at the blog "Cricket-bug Corner." If you have not found her blog, then head on over.  Jamie's blog is full of interesting things.  She does great cross stitch, visits wonderful restaurants and sights, and is in the process of fixing up her new home in Indiana! Thanks so much for your kindness Jamie!

 Here is the cute little bunny on the tree!  She will also look great on my Spring feather tree!

 I love the bee charm.


 Here is my current WIP.  It is Christmas Colors:MD'S Sampler by Shakespeare's Peddler.  I have changed a color.  There was a green that I didn't like with the other green colors in the sampler. It was almost aqua. I'm using golds and a soft green.

 Hannah's ornament is ready to mail.  I used Vonna's of the "Twisted Stitcher" tutorial for finishing a flat ornament. Her directions are wonderful!

Here is the back.  I am so glad it is finished.  Finishing is just not my favorite thing to do.  I guess that's why I frame almost everything.
I hope you all have a wonderful week , stay warm, it has been so cold here!!
