Last Exchange of 2012

I rounded off the year with one last exchange.  I hadn't been very involved with exchanges this year compared to the last couple of years...  between the house, work, and just not feeling it so much, I wasn't a very active stitcher, or blogger for that matter.  But I decided to sign up for the Stitcher's Choice round over at the HoE blog and I think that might have sparked up a little stitchy fire under my keister! haha

I got Marie's name for my partner and this is what I chose to stitch for her:

Merry & Bright
by Erynne Chard
{freebie found here}
32ct Mushroom Lugana
DMC as charted

And some goodies I chose to fill out the package :)

I haven't received my piece yet, but will be sure to share as soon as I do!
The end of the year is so many things for me.  Christmas is my favorite holiday, my birthday falls during this last week and the new year is a fresh start.  We can all wipe the slate clean and look forward to so many things! 
2013 has me looking forward to so many things... the next round of the TUSAL, the 2013 Hair Massacure (which I'll be volunteering at this year!), stitching my first HAED (this one) and preparing the next one, and so much more!
Happy New Year friends! I wish you and your family much health & happiness for the new year ahead.  With love from my home to yours <3 p="p">
