A Snowy finish and a Holiday Wish!

My first order of business is to thank Amy at Amy's Stitches for the lovely package I received in the mail this week.  It certainly felt wonderful receiving such a lovely gift.  Amy had a giveaway on her blog and I was the first comment posted so I thought, I'll never win that one.  Well the random number generator worked in my favor and I was the lucky recipient of this adorable embroidered snowman ornament/pillow.  I love it! Thank you Amy!!

I was working on this LHN Snow White pattern at my Wednesday Stitching group for the last couple of weeks and finally finished it up last weekend.  I stitched it on 32ct bluegrass linen and used Belle Soie Icing.  I love the way it turned out and plan to make it into a pillow.

I also finished the stitching on this Sue Hillis Design titled Sugar and Spice.  My mom had asked me to stitch this for her friend's new baby and I wanted to share it before I personalized it to maintain their privacy.  It turned out super sweet and I chose a white frame that compliments it beautifully. 
Next, I created a bracelet for the same friend's baby.  They asked my mom and dad to be god parents for their daughter so naturally my mom wanted something special for the baptism.  I made 2 bracelets because there is an older sibling and I certainly didn't want to leave her out.  One bracelet is 4" (teeny tiny) and the other is 6".  I hope they like them.

That is what has been keeping me busy these past several days.  I hope you have a Merry Christmas and enjoy spending time with family and friends.  Happy Stitching!

Nataly, Your LHN "Snow White" is beautiful and I absolutely love the Sue Hillis "Sugar and Spice" piece too. I would love to stitch it for my little granddaughter! The little pearl bracelets are very special. You are so talented!
