Mail Day & A Finish

I participated in a Humbug Exchange at  Stitchin Fingers and this is the humbug I received from Melissa. She couldn't find a pattern for a humbug,so she adapted a design from a band sampler. She didn't know that I really like the bargello look so I just love this little humbug. It couldn't be more perfect for me.It is such delicate stitching.

Also the Hand Embroidery group at Stitcher's showcase was doing a challenge on the stem stitch and I made this little ornament.It is a design by Bird Brain Designs. Most of the Redwork I have done is by using the back stitch. I think I like using stem stitch better.Anyway I need to practice my stitches on this more, I have a pattern for a pillow I want to make.

I have finally finished stitching all the biscornus for Please Pass the Biscornu exchange. The gal who started the exchange dropped out of sight early on and no one heard from her, then she closed the blog down so we all had to wing it. It was a little frustrating since that was my very first exchange.I'm told not all exchanges are that way.The humbug exchange went very well.
I'll try to remember to take some pics of my wip when I get the camera back out.

Well, I think I'm only a day late in posting my Tu SAL for this month. It's filling up pretty good.I've got just one biscornu to make for the exchange. It has not  been a good experience, for my first time exchanging.All the ladies I exchanged with were very nice, but the one who organized it seemed to disappear and no one has heard from her nor received a biscornu from her. Oh well, life goes on.

I'm working on a couple other things and I'll try to get some pics up soon.

New Stash

 I just got some more new patterns. Not that I need any more things to start. I only have about 5 things going at once. It's always fun to get more. Where will I begin?

I thought I would try my hand at doing some Redwork as well, so I found these to do.I think I will start with the basket of flowers at the top. I may try to finish up a few pieces first before tackling it.

I got a couple of books about Crazy Quilting but forgot to take a pic of those. I would like to learn how to do that, too.
