The condition of Jolene's giveaway this time was that you made a wish by telling her what, from your wishlist, you wanted to have as a new Start in 2010. Now, there are a lot of nice things on my wishlist, and I love them all, but I thought about what I might actually be able to START right now/soon (considering my WiPs, and an exchange commitment) and also the winter season and so narrowed it down to two things- Red Bird Sampler and Sweetheart Tree's Think Snow. I asked her to pick if I won. Secretly, I think I did want Red Bird More!!! Squeee! I'm really so thrilled about this one. Now, I'll have TWO WiPs featuring Red Birds, but I'm gonna keep the first under my hat for a bit longer. ;)
And, while I'm here, I finally have a tidbit of a thing I can actually show you! And it's even my own stitching at that:
Feast your eyes upon my start on the Workbasket's Fox Forest, or as I like to call it, "Zee Fox" lol (Marc's corny humor is contagious)! This chart is a generous loan from Edgar, who stitched it earlier this year and finished it into one of his "Incomparable" Boxes for his contribution to an exchange. I've been just batty for red foxes for quite a while now, and am so pleased to have done this little bit, at least, of a fox design. I can say that this is also my favorite fox of the whole bunch in this piece, so he can keep me company while I stitch up the rest.
Well, I'm off to a gathering of Marc's College Friends called "The Monthly Party" (You must forgive these guys; they are programmers and haven't the talent for titles that we stitchers have. ;) I hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas and general good time. Please find some cozy stitching time and expect a return of my Wednesday showcase posts in the new year (if not another blog from me before).
Yours in Stitching,
