Goodies arrived and some stitching

I got a super box on the way out of the office last Wednesday when I got home I put it on my desk. There is sat until yesterday when I got to sit down and enjoy opening it up....... let me tell you what a super box of Christmas wonderfulness awaited -

It was from Amy at Cross Stitch and Cupcakes - we were exchange partners in the SBEBB Christmas ornament Exchange - Here is a snap of the entire exchange

The ornament was from the 2008 JCS and he is just the cutest!!

Amy included some delicious hand creme - that makes me smell like cookies!! I love it!! She also included a set of Holiday Yankee Candles - I just love this company and burn their candles year round - now how did Amy know this!!! The package also included some super mints and a great piece of finishing fabric!! Thank you so much for the wonderful exchange!!!!!!

I also received a super cute ornament from Anna
- she did a give-a-way and here is a snap of this darling piece -

Included in the package was a chocolate bar from Poland - now how nice was this!!!
Thank you so much Anna for the lovely ornie and tasty chocolate!!!!

I just love these drawings and give-a-ways!!!! I am getting the itch to do another - but I have to wait until after Christmas - just to let the mails settle down a bit before I throw anything else into the mix. So keep an eye out the first couple of weeks of January!!

I finished up the reindeer and here is a snap -

I am really happy withe the way he turned out - I changed the font - as the plain back stitching I did not care for. Now I need to finish up and whip him into an ornament.

I have quite a few snaps from the weekend - but those will be for later into the week.

I hope every ones Holiday was just super!!!
Thanks for stopping by - and thank you all so very much
all the lovely comments that you left!!!!!

Take care,

Your reindeer turned out terrific. The change in font was a great choice. I had to go dig out my JCS after seeing you start this.. it will have to go into my ToDo pile for the next couple of weeks. Thanks for the inspiration!
