Sneaky Peek - Christmas Ornament

I know you are probably saying to yourself, "it is just now really starting to feel like spring and she's stitching a Christmas ornament???". Well, in June, I am attending a stitching retreat in Indiana with two great friends and I CAN'T WAIT! Jan Alexander, the designer for Tree of Life Samplings is hosting this great event with her special guest, Vonna Pfeiffer (The Twisted Stitcher). It's going to be a fun weekend and I'm already giddy with excitement.

One of the events planned for the weekend is a Christmas ornament exchange. I love stitching ornaments and I love seeing all of the different creations stitchers come up with. This is a little "sneak peek" of the ornament I have started for the exchange. I have an idea for another one so I may bring two - maybe three - who knows - It's fun!! You'll have to wait until after the retreat to see the ornament finished and ready for tree hanging!

Have a great weekend everyone! We are expecting thunder storms again tonight. Please keep us in your prayers that we won't have any damage like we did earlier this week.

Until the next blog post........Be Happy!

Too bad I will not be one of the two girls that you are with. :( I am interested to see what you have chosen as your project.

Yvonne, What was the name of that old Prairie School Alphabet that you were stitching at Amy's stitch-in a couple of times ago? Thx.

Oh my gosh, that sounds like a fn retreat!! I know Jan has done them in the past (and the attendees loved them) but didn't know Vonna would join her this year. How neat!! And an ornament exchange--that sounds like a load of fun. Nice sneak peek!

I love your Quaker Diamonds!
