Generosity Of A Stitching Angel

On Christmas Eve, a package arrived in my mailbox from Lisa…Who is Lisa? I truly had no idea what was in the box. When I opened it up, I found this:

PS Fans Halloween Exchange
Replacement stitched by: Lisa

A great PS Halloween Pinkeep, some adorable buttons, and some DMC floss. I was so surprised when I read Lisa’s note and learned that when she read about the MIA stitcher on the PS Fans blog she immediately contacted the moderator and offered to step in and stitch an exchange piece for me. I must say that was so thoughtful and such a generous gesture on her part! Although we were in the same exchange, I did not know Lisa nor had I ever visited her blog but she found it in her heart to stitch me a wonderful pinkeep. With all that she had to do during this busy holiday season she still volunteered to “make right” another person’s “wrong” ~ Lisa, you are a stitching angel and I cannot thank you enough. I will treasure your pinkeep; it will be a constant reminder of your selfless generosity.

One of the last exchanges that I mailed out for 2009 was an Ornament to BeckySC. I know how Becky loves snowman so I stitched this design for her:

2009 Ornament Exchange
Stitched For:
Sampler Winter by Marika Belfiori ~ Freebie

I put a musical button inside that, when pressed, plays Frosty the Snowman. I also added a cute silver mitten/snowflake charm to the front.

Now that I have actually put needle to fabric and stitched most of the PS "A" block, I feel like an official member of the PS Alphabet SAL group. With much of this block completed I look forward to stitching the remaining 25 letters!!!

Designer: Prairie Schooler
Design: A*B*C

Wondering what this will look like when completed? Check it out.

Wishing you only good things in the New Year~

Until next time...

You truly had a stitching angel looking out for you! Isn't it amazing how generous people in stitching blog land are?

That is one fine lookin witch! And your ornie to BeckySC is so cute and what a clever idea. Stitchers are the best people ever.

Happy New Year.

Great looking witch. Nice snowman ornament.

I will be watching your progress on the PS ABC project. I had thought I wanted to start that too, but think I will have to live it through others stitching it. Great start on a huge project.

There are angels among us and Lisa must be one of them. What a nice surprise!

I am trying really hard not to succumb to the PS ABC SAL...what fabric are you using?

Nice ornament for Becky too....

Merry Christmas!

Oh it's wonderful that Lisa stitched you the exchange!

Your ornament for Becky is very pretty and I like the PS design a lot. I've been reading the SAL blog, it's great to see all those lovely designs stitched.

Have a very happy new year, dear Marie!

That ornament with the snowman is looking SO beautiful. Where did you get the little music button from? What a neat idea. I might "borrow" that.
Lisa's ornament for you is beautiful too.

I LOVE the ornament you stitched for Becky! The musical button is a wonderful addition ;)

I can't wait to see your PS Alphabet progress. I'd love to do it but have alot I am in the middle of right now.

I am so glad you liked the PS Witch I stitched for you :) It was my pleasure!

Happy New Year!

Stitchers are wonderful pieces and someone always seems to step in when there's a void and goes above the call of duty!

What a great ornament for Becky and your ornament block looks great!

Suzanne said...

Love the witch and the snowman. Great start to the PS Alphabet. Have a happy new year!

Brigitte said...

Oh, isn't that great? Some frinedly stitcher making up for someone else's selfishness. And she stitched a wonderful Halloween ornament for you. Enjoy!
I love your ornament for Becky. And thanks for the link to the finished PS alphabet - it looks terrific.
Wishing you all the best for 2010.
