Another pretty

This gorgeous pin arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
It was made by my dear friend Norma.  It is in my favorite color and just look at that cute face!  I have already taken her for a test drive on the lapel of my winter coat - won't I be stylin'?  She also sent a little snowman cross stitch ornament kit which will make a nice addition to my tree.  Thank you so much Norma.  I truly feel blessed.

As you can see I finished my LHN September sampler just in the nick of time.  It is sitting on my mantle amongst my other fall decorations.  I can hardly wait to see what LHN will offer for the final installment of this series.

Thursday I spent quite a bit of time sewing and have made a project bag, and a bird ornament to add to the giveaway box.  I plan to put one more thing together this weekend before calling the giveaway complete.  I also worked on a couple of RAK's that will be winging their way outta here soon.   :o)

I hope you all have some wonderful plans for the weekend doing whatever it is that you love to do.

Myra, What a thoughtful and talented friend you have. I love you LHN finish. It looks fab. As for the giveaway, it's sounds delightful.

What an adorable gift from your friend! You'll have to share a pic of her on your coat.

The LHN piece is too cute - I love acorns, except when they fall on my head!

Your give away goodies sound fantastic - keeping my fingers and toes and anything else I can, crossed!

What a gorgeous pin from your friend!

Love LHN September, I have the charts but don't know when I will stitch them. There are too many things I want to stitch and finish.

Your pumpkin is lovely, love your finishing.

What a sweet pin Myra. I too, love all shades of purple. My bridesmaids wore orchid many moons ago.
September looks beautiful all framed.
Lucky the winner of your giveaway. You have put a lot of time, thought and love into making someone ECSTATIC :)

Very nice framing job! At least you will be able to admire it for a little bit this month ;o)
