Back from Chicago!

You did not even know I went, but yes 3 days in Chicago, bundled up in mittens and coats,
DH and I just went for fun and holiday shopping and sight seeing..........LOveD IT !

While in chicago Melissa received her fair and square exchange.
so I can post these pics of what I made for her from 2008 JCS christmas ornaments by Blackbird Designs:

We decided to gift each other the finishing of our squares as a christmas extra...
this was a fun exchange and a delight to stitch.


  1. That is a lovely stitch and what a great gift to finish it before sending. I really like that idea.

  2. Looks like you had a great time in Chicago! I've only been in the airport LOL!

    What a gorgeous ornament!

  3. You certainly had a great time in Chicago in spite of the cold and snow.
    What a lovely ornament this BBD piece is.

  4. Looks like you and DH had an awesome time running around in Chicago. The BBD ornament is beautiful and what a great gift/exchange idea - the "finish"...something that is made by you, but finished with the loving hands of another.

  5. It looks like you & DH had a great time in Chicago! Thanks for sharing the pics. I LOVE the BBD ornament! Lovely job.
