SBEBB - "Winter House" Exchange..stitching on Forgiveness

Yesterday I received this beautiful pin-keep from my partner Terry for the "Winter House Exchange." It is just gorgeous and the goodies that she included are super!!!! Here is a snap


Terry included "Snowman Needle Roll" chart & "Winter Sampler" which also came with the floss. There was also a spool of black ribbon and a really cool piece of fabric. Thank you so much for the exchange piece and the super extras!!!! The picture is hard to see the wee little buttons that are on the bottom...they are little red birds, could that be nicer!!!!!! :)

I worked last night on "Forgiveness" as if I had nothing else to work on.... Like.....I could have worked on the RR piece, as it is only about 40% done, and I am running a tad late with it..... I could have finished up on one of the exchanges that need finishing..... or I even could have tackled that white church on the VoHRH...which has not seen the light of day since the beginning of December. But, instead I worked on finishing the large motif on Forgiveness, here is a snap.


That little leaf looks kind of silly just hanging there, but there are others to be added later. This large brown motif is done in WDW Molasses, at first I thought that this was really dark but now after it is done I kinda like it.

I guess that I am just very critical of my work and the things I do, I always have been and probably always will be. Always hardest on myself.....but you can't teach an old dog new tricks, so the Drawer of Doom remains. (Hi Barbara - I knew I wasn't the only one out there!!!)

This is just the best group of people, stitchers rock!!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!!!

Take care,
edgar
