HOE Quaker Ornament Arrives

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the mail brought me a lovely Exchange piece yesterday.  As part of the HOE I joined in on the second round Ornament Exchange - the theme was a Quaker Ornament -and you know how I loves me some Quaker!! - so how could I pass!!  Yesterday my ornament arrived from my partner - all the way from Singapore - Ellen did a wonderful job on this exchange!!  Here is a snap ....

The design is from JCS 2006 by Ellen Chester - stitched on 32ct Vintage Mocha Belfast.  This was a no goodies exchange but sweet Ellen included a darling little porcelain thimble from Singapore, how cute is that!  I do thank you so very much Ellen, and it will look super on the tree this year!!! 

I got my ornament into the mail this morning - it should arrive in a few days as it hasn't that very far to go.

There you go sports fans - another week gone and two wonderful days off looming in front of us!!!  Have a great weekend and do stop by again.

Take care,

  7. What a nice ornament, sweet and simple like a Quaker should be. And the touches of green are a great addition. I missed Thursday to comment, but that old version of Lost Horizon is one of my favorites. I had a copy that I recorded from TCM years ago, but loaned it to my brother, who lost it while moving. Big sigh. Have a great weekend!

  8. Pretty ornament - I think that one of my favorite freebie charts!
    Have a lovely weekend guys!
