Some Thanksgiving stitching

I started Blackbird Designs 2008 Mystery Sampler on Thursday Evening. Here is where I am on Friday night. Didn't get to stitch as much as I would like, but hopefully will get more in this weekend. I am really enjoying stitching this design. I think I want to have a BBD always in my rotation next year.. :)..

Exchange to Amy

I was slow getting this to Amy but I did finally get it to her. It is stitched with Crescent Colours Belle Soie in Red fox, Expresso and Teddy Bear on 40 ct linen. The original designs was for a checkbook cover but I preferred it to be a needle book.

MAW from Gaby

I received the cutest Halloween pillow from Gaby. It is from the make a wish exchange. Gaby chose a German design so I would not have anything like it and I do not. I love the pillow and have put it in a place of honor on my stitching table.

F&S Round 10 received from Susan and a New project started

This is the very pretty Just Nan design I received from Susan P in the 10th round of Fair and Square. It is very pretty and the picture does not do it justice. Thank you so much Susan.

And of course since I didnt have enough WIPs already I thought I'd add a new one, this is Dragonflight by Enchanting Lair stitched on 32ct Frenzy Linen by Silkweaver.

I haven't been able to post much lately because I have been stitching for Exchanges. I decided to stitch a little for myself this weekend. I started working on Rosewood Manor's Inspiration again.

I want to get all caught up with exchanges this month, so my goals are:

1. Finish Amy's exchange for 4 of us exchange
2. Friendship book pages for Sandy and Renee (the last two)
3. MAW for Gaby (stitched needs finishing)
4. MAW for Carol (a new finish type)
5. F&S #10 for Susan
6.Vicki's Birthday box

Then I want to start on my MM&I town :)... I don't know if I will have a WS this month, since things got a little out of sync with someone leaving the exchange, but hopefully if I do, I will be able to get right to work on it too. :);..
