Hello Blog Buddies!
Thanks for all your comments on my last post. I am sorry that I haven't had a chance to reply to those comments.
The week has been busy. I found out that on Thursday a friends mother unexpectedly passed away. Rich and I went to the visitation last night. I was so glad that we were able go.
My DH went by the local needlework store and picked this up for me...

I really got put out of my misery early this year. I can't remember the ornament issue ever being out this early. There are definitely some in here that I want to stitch. I still need to work on those kits that I still have from that exchange I used to be in. If they started it up again I would be in! It was a lot o fun.
I did sign up for the stitched with love fall exchange. I think Lainey has done a great job organizing this. Now I have to decide what to stitch. I looked through some of my charts yesterday for inspiration. I need to get started. I found another duplicate chart so check back tomorrow for a pay it forward post.

Here is some progress on my mystery sampler.
That's about it from here. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. If you have the day off tomorrow have a safe wonderful day.

It meant a lot, a whole lot, to Mom and I both that you took the time and trouble to drive all that distance to see us last night. And now, you've given us another distraction for tomorrow... we shall go on a magazine hunt in the morning!

WOW! Lucky you, getting the ornaments issue so early! You have a wonderful DH!

Great progress on the Mystery Sampler!

That was sweet of your husband! I think mine has developed a blind eye to anything cross stitch. Happy stitching!

Hi Chris - your mystery sampler looks great! You are really going strong - it looks like a LOT of stitching on this piece! My favorite part is definitely the tulip border, it is very pretty and makes me happy.
