A finish and a new (extended) family member

Last Friday (the 2nd) was An's Birthday. I got the cutest fob from her for my birthday earlier this year and I was so excited to be able to make something for her.


I know An likes LHN designs and she had posted on her blog a few weeks ago that she has them all but, she's never gotten to stitch any of them. So when I came across these 2 little sheep I knew I had to do them for her. I aslso sent her two pieces of fabric that I didn't get a chance to take a picture of. (you can see the fabric and the pillow on An's blog)

My parents have a new additon to the family.

This is Sophie and she's a yellow lab. In this picture she was 7 weeks old. They have had her almost 2 weeks now and she's into everything.

I've been doing a little stitching but, not much. Reading still seems to be my major pull right now but I do hope to get my exhcange committments done soon so I can get back to stitching for me...I hope this will be the trick to getting me back into the stitching mood.

The pillow turned out very cute, I love the sheep. LHN patterns are some of my favorites, such fun to do.

Sophie is a doll, what a sweet face. However, I'll bet she is into all kinds of stuff. Puppies can be so mischevious, but when you look at their little wiggly, happy bodies you'll forgive them pretty much anything.

Just wanted to drop by and wish you all the best for the remainder of the festive season - and hope that 2008 is a wondrous year full of peace, love and happiness ... and plenty of stitchy goodness :)

Hi Jenn,

I've not received my Stitching Blogger's Christmas Exchange. It's been 3 weeks since you said you sent out. Let's hope it's just the tremendous volume of items being mailed and wait till mid January to see what happens.

You'll definitely be the first to know once I receive your exchange.

Take care and a Happy New Year to you!

Barbara said...

Hiya Jenn,

No sight of the exchange to date. Is there anyway you can track it? Did you register it?

I've had some orders from Mary Kathyrn and she shipped end of last year and I've received it already.

I am afraid it might be lost. You mailed it on the 5th of December. It's more than a month now.

What do you propose we do?

Regards,

Barbara
