I received two wonderful gifts from WendyJo. One was this beautifully stitched and finished BBD stocking from last year's JCS ornament issue. WendyJo tells me this is her first 'stocking finish' - can you believe it? It's absolutely gorgeous - I love it so much I don't want to put it away but leave it out all year! There was also enclosed a Quaker drinks coaster in my favourite colour blue. This I can leave on display and it's sitting on my desk complete with a hot drink as I type this.

Not only did WendyJo send me the beautiful stocking, she also remembered my birthday and sent this pretty Isabel Bloom ornament called 'Hugs'. I had not heard of Isabel, I understand she passed away in 2001, but her name lives on in her wonderful ornaments and sculptures.

Thank you WendyJo for these lovely gifts and for being such a kind and generous friend!

The draw for the Sew Peaceful chart closes tomorrow at the stroke of midnight (GMT) and will be drawn on New Years Day so there is still time to enter. All you need to do is leave a comment on the original post *here* saying why you would like to win this chart. Please do not forget to leave an email address if your blog is private or locked - there are a few comments already without any means of me contacting the person who left them. I blatantly stole the above picture from Andrea's blog (sorry and thank you Andrea) as her finish of Sew Peaceful is amazing! DRAW NOW CLOSED

I have been stitching these past few days on the Emblem of Love RR which belongs to Deb who chose a bright pink linen with multi-coloured threads. As you know I tend to use more neutral colour fabrics so it is making a change for me to stitch on such a bright colour. Maybe I need more colour in my life! I will continue to stitch on this one until my section is completed and then it's back to Beatrix.

Thank you for visiting
Take care
