Tiny stitches!

As some of you know, I have become great friends with three ladies I met through the apron swaps, Karen, Regena, and Denise. Every year we share our lives and our talents with our own swaps and random griftees.

Well, yesterday I came home to a package from Karen and her mad stitching skillz are something to behold. She stitched me this beautiful heart ornie on what must be the Hughes count linen ever!

She included the oh so cute donut pin cushion and the "I can't wait to wear" dachshund socks.

What Karen didn't know was that I also received from my neighbor was some adorable dachshund stationary that mat he's the dachshund return labels she included perfectly!

Thank you Karen sew much!

I wish that I had taken a picture of what Regena sent me- its a cute holiday dachshund stitched and mounted on an antique hoop! However, Regena blogged it on her blog here if you want to see it!  The hubs like it so much it decorated his roll top desk for Christmas. Sadly, I've already packed it up with all the other decorations. She did include this super tags that say "from one Crafty Chica" that I can't wait to use!

Thank you ladies for sharing so much with me and I'm so thankful God has put you all in my life.

So glad you liked it all :) I couldn't wait to use the silk floss you gave me. It seemed only right to use it on your ornie. Sorry it came so late and now you have Christmas all packed away and this one orphan ornament hanging around.....:0
