Last Exchange for 2007 ~ Tissue Holder Pattern

During this busy time of year I am forced to limit the number of exchanges that I participate in however, there are a few that I can't resist. I recently sent out my last exchange for 2007, it was sent to Cathy. Having heard that she received it, I can now post pictures. I decided to stitch this stocking ornament for her.


USEBB: Ornament Exchange 2007
Designer: Nutmeg Needle
Design: Mini Stocking

USEBB: 2007 Ornament Exchange - Stitched for Cathy B.



Tissue Holder Pattern



If you are interested in making a Tissue Holder, like the one that I sent in my exchange to Cathy, you can get the instructions here. They are very easy to make and are a great way to use up those fabric scraps.



I have successfully completed 21 exchanges during 2007, most of them with USEBB, SBEBB, Seasonal Stitchers, and Fair & Square, . I have received so many gorgeous exchanges from Amber, Autumn, AmySC, Barbara, BeckyK, BeckySC, Carol, Carolynn, CathyB, Chris, Goldie, Heather, Helen, Isabelle, Juanita, Julianne, Katrina, Nicki, Paula, and Vonna. Let me again thank each of you for the time you spent stitching and finishing these beautiful pieces. I will forever treasure them!


A huge thank you to BeckySC for including me in the wonderful groups you manage. I look forward to participating in your 2008 exchanges!


A huge thank you to Vonna and Annemarie for including me in the Fair and Square Exchange. This is an amazing group of talented stitchers/friends!


During this extra busy time of year I know that it is difficult to find the time to read blogs. I truly appreciate your stopping by and commenting.



Until next time...

Your little ornament stocking is to die for! It's so adorable.

I LOVE my tissue holder. I inspected it tonight and I was trying to tell if it was handmade or not! That makes it even more special. It looks like it will be a good little learning sewing project for me. Thank you for sharing the instructions.

I hope to have your F&S exchange to you before the end of 2007. The squares are next on my list after I finish a needleroll. It's about 2/3's finished. Wish me luck :)

Love that little stocking. I took a class from Nutmeg Needle once. The project is still a UFO. Had a little problem and never could get it figured out so just put it aside.

That tissue holder looks like a fun thing to stitch. I have enough fabric that I should be able to find something to make it, LOL.
