Lizzie Kate exchanges

I took part in the Lizzie Kate exchange on the HOE blog and this is what I received from Cari today. I absolutely love it ! She says this is her first ever cube finish and it looks wonderful. Thanks Cari.
Below is what I sent to Joke

Small Christmas Ornament

Pam's Ornaments by Chen Designs
28 ct. White Annabelle
DMC 666 and 701
I was looking for something yesterday and came across this pattern and thought it would be a quick stitch. I did the side in the left picture before I realized I had mixed up the colors, so decided to do it both ways and put it together. Stitched both sides yesterday and sewed it together this afternoon. You can't tell but I used a goldish color to sew the sides. It is small, 2 by 2 inches. Guess if I had sewn a longer hanger it would make a cute fob.

Peacock Pinkeep

Stacy Nash Design
32 ct. Belfast Raw Linen
I finished this one up yesterday, very quick stitch. Today I worked on an exchange and it would be finished except I decided to shovel some of the snow off the front sidewalk hoping the mailman will stop by, tomorrow will tell. I must admit I didn't keep up with the shoveling as I was expecting it to rain. I'm sure paying for it now. I am getting some stitching done, but both Tiger and me, and I'm sure my Mom too, are getting cabin fever.

It's just a coincidence that both my finishes are by the same designer. I think it will be a year of trees for me, I have a few patterns that I really like, red trees, blue trees, even pink trees. Not that I will do the unusual color ones, but I do have a lot of different greens I could use.

Stitchy Kitty
28 ct. Ice Blue Cashel
This is a complimentary design I have been wanting to stitch since last year. It describes exactly how I feel with all the snow we have. My driveway and lane way are a slab of ice, so I won't be driving anywhere still it warms up enough to melt all away. Since it is suppose to snow again tonight (hopefully turning to rain) it will be awhile yet.
One of my goals this year is to keep my blog current, as in posting more often and showing my stitching when it's finished. I have a bunch of stitching I never showed last month and will post all in a few days.
