An Ornament Arrives

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks for stopping by for a quick minute.  It is again a cold and dry morning here in SF - and the news weather reporters are telling us that some more rain is on the way!!

I read on the HOE Blog that the ornament I sent to my Exchange Partner - Jen - had arrived - she posted also about it on her Blog.  Here is a snap....

This was the first round in the ongoing HOE Ornament Exchange for 2011 - it was the "Reindeer Ornament" exchange.  This piece is from the Prairie Schooler "Snowy Nights" Book.

I got very little stitching done - I was off a stitch in that dolphin on the Shores 6/7 square so I had a bit of  the frog last night - after that I sort of napped the evening away - waking up to catch the 1938 "Pygmalion" - starring Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller.  I love this film - a non musical version of "My Fair Lady."

There you go sports fans - thanks again for stopping by - do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

Lovely ornament. You did a great job.

What a great ornament! Great job. Sorry about the frogging--hopefully that will be your quota of visits from the frog for awhile.

Frogging will make you sleepy; it's a scientific fact. What a nice ornament! Leslie Howard is one of my favs. Didn't he play the Scarlet Pimpernel? I need to google that.

Great Ornament! So sorry you had to wrestle with the frogs!

Cute ornament, Edgar !! I saw it in Jen's blog too. Oh frogging.... it seems that's what I've been doing all weekend. I am stitching I Sigh Not For Beauty and I've undone more than I've done !!! LOL !! Not a fun thing to do, but I am a perfectionist, what can I say? :-)

Beautiful ornament, and your finishing looks so festive!

Mary said...

Great ornament! Lucky Jen!

That frog must be racking up the frequent flier miles. I had a visit from him over the weekend. I wouldn't worry to much about the little fellow though, he seems to have itchy feet and moves on quickly.

Very beautiful ornament!

Cute ornament! I am sure your exchange partner was thrilled. Sorry to hear about the frogging on Shores - hopefully you're done with that now!
