Halloween Ornament Exchange for Jayne

**It seems that I drafted this post earlier this month and never hit publish!  I hope you had a very Merry Christmas with some holiday cheer & lots of memories made with your loved ones!  I'm hoping to post more regularly in the New Year, I always have the best of intentions and it seems like life just keeps getting in the way...  Anyways, Happy Holidays with lots of love from my home to yours.  May 2014 bring you your best year yet! xo 

I saw on the HoE blog that Jayne received the Halloween ornament I stitched for her.

Double Double by Lizzie*Kate
2013 JCS Halloween Special Issue
32ct Mushroom Lugana & recommended DMC

As soon as I  saw this pattern I knew it would be on my list of items to stitch quickly!  When the posting went up on the HoE board for a perpetual Halloween exchange I signed up without hesitation, with fingers crossed that my exchange partner would be a Lizzie*Kate fan.

I noticed when taking the pictures that I missed stitching the witches waistline!  Oh well, I still think it's a cute stitch, waistline completed or not ;o)

HoE Halloween Ornament Round #1 received from Linda

The mailman brought me a special treat today... or at least I think it was today!  I found this tucked in my front door (which we rarely use), so it might have been there sooner and went unnoticed!  We usually check the mail from outside when we take out the pup, so it was a surprise to find it between the doors.

Linda stitched me this cute ornament, which she said is a freebie from Cherry Hill Stitchery, stitched with recommended flosses.

I was going to show you the ornament I stitched as well, as I saw on the HoE blog that it was received, but I can't seem to load more than one picture today :(  Darn Blogger...

 I hope you're all managing to stay warm...  We had a cold, cold spell over the weekend, lows of around -40C! Brrrr!  I was thankful that I had last Thursday and Friday off of work, so didn't have to venture too far.  My mom braved the cold and came over to my house and we spent the two days baking up a storm for Christmas!  Mmmmm.... now if the treats will last until the big day we'll be all set! LOL
