Exchange Received and Nov WIPopocalypse

Wow..another post so soon.  I have my four seasonal exhange partners so I am happy.  I have found charts for two of them and will be starting them soon.  best to utilise the stitching bug while it is there lol.

On my WIP front, I have not got much further on anything. This is my new start.

I am going to pick this up in about two mins and do some more on it.

Lanybleu has received my exhange gifts and tree ornie.

It is a freebie from My Big Toe Designs.  I love that some designers offer free charts.  I had never heard of Big Toe before I did a random search for free xmas charts for my Irish group's chart challenge.  Now I have.  It is worth designers using freebies as a carrot on a stick as it gives us a chance to see what their designs are like and then buy from them.  Will I be buying from these guys?  Of course lol.  So win-win. 
So without any more is the one I stitched for Elaine.

I slightly altered the design and it is backed on Navy felt which is in turn backed on white felt with gold tinsley bits in it and I used some of my felty trim which I bought from Motto Sampler Shoppe in the summer.  Everyone who took part in the challenge had the same chart but we could stitch and finish it as we wished.  I am always thrilled by the results and the variety which is produced by some very talented ladies.

And a reminder of the one Elaine stitched for me


Well, stitching is awaiting so ' I shall do as the French do and say Au Revoir' (guess what I was watching last night lol).

Happy needles!
