Valentine Exchange for Outi

I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had a nice weekend but like always it went by too fast. On Saturday I finished the stitching on a secret piece for an exchange that has seem to gone MIA. I am planning on finishing it into something later this evening.

Yesterday I worked on the Harvest Witch SAL with Renee. I really am enjoying stitching her!


Sue asked what where I got the pattern for Harvest Witch from Stoney Creek. I am not sure if it was published in a magazine or not. I bought this leaflet that has her in it and a lot more designs I plan to stitch!


This morning I was pleased to hear that my Valentine exchange has made it safely to Outi's home. I stitched her this freebie from ABC Cross Stitch Patterns. I was concerned about the threads matching the fabric I had bought but in the end it worked out perfectly.


I finished it into a small covered box for her. Making these boxes are fairly simple and if there is enough people interested I would be happy to try and put together a tutorial for making one.


Before I go, Becky K asked how Gracie was doing. She is doing wonderful. She has already claimed the personality of a Princess...lol. Girly has decided that it is pretty fun having her around. Bitsy and Claudia have also decided that she is pretty fun to chase around the house. Zoey, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with Gracie. That isn't much of surprise though considering Zoey does not like anyone! Overall, the adjusting has been pretty smooth and now we are working on manners.
I have rambled on long enough today so I am going to go tackle that huge pile of laundry that is threatening to overtake the laundry area. Enjoy your day! :)

I love the greens and purples in HW. She's coming along quite beautifully. The snowman box is delightful. And, I'm glad to hear Gracie is a happy pup.
