Stitching News

October was an extremely busy month!  We celebrated my son's Bar Mitzvah, I attended a stitching retreat at Salty Yarns in Ocean City MD and participated in a Halloween Exchange with my stitching twin Carol.  I call her my stitching twin because we literally stitched the same items.  Here is an example.  We decided to have a Halloween exchange where we would exchnage 3 Halloween Ornaments -- stitchers choice.  We then changed it to 2 because life got in the way.  We were both finishing the ornaments the same morning that we would be exchanging.  (Procrastination or fear of finishing-- you decide).  We had hundreds of ornaments to choose from, books, magazine, freebies you name it and look at what we stitched for each other.
 
Above are the ornaments I finished for Carol.  Below are the ones she finished for me!

How is it, that with all of the choices we stitched the same designs???!!!!  See what I mean!
Stitching TWIN. All of the designs were taken from JCS magazine, Blue Ribbon designs, Elizabeths Design and bottom left is Ink Circles.  I guess you could say, great minds think alike right Carol!
  I would love to hear if you have a stitching twin and what makes them special to you.
