A Finish & Mail !

This is my finish from the chart - Acorns by The Prairie Schooler. I need to get the wool to make the Acorn Top. The picture does not show the true color of the fabric, which is a Prairie Grain Linen. I used the DMC threads called for. Those big acorns came from my big TREE... Aren't they great!
I also received 2 great packets in the mail !!! One had the ornament I bought from Donna at By The Bay Needleart Designs. She was also sending a free Christmas chart with any order. Picture below:






I don't know if she has any left on her Esty.. Check here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ByTheBayNeedleart She has the cutest things and charts for sale. She will release Sam The Snowman soon. He will be great to stitch!I also received my Order from Anita's Little Stitches Shop ! I can always count on her to get my order to me quick ! I will be ordering from her more often. I have been having trouble with ordering floss lately and having to wait about a month till I receive it. With the silks about 2 months... duh.... Here is my threads from Anita:



Those colors are great !!! I am ready to start all my Christmas ornaments!! Can't wait! What are ya'll stitching on? Thanksgiving/Fall or Christmas?

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway on the last post. Giveaway will take place Monday with Rebel Dog pointing out the winner! She will be sporting her new haircut and her winter sweater. She wants to be a model, I told her she is a little old for modeling with her cripple back and crooked teeth. She has needed doggie braces on her teeth since she was a puppy. So ya'll will see Rebel dressing in contest finery to pick a winner !!!
