Cross Stitching items, Exchanges and SALs

I in a Stitch A Long (SAL) and I can't recall which group....need to look that up. I was working good on it, but had to put it aside to work on some Christmas presents.

This is the latest picture: Well I can't seem to make the picture go the right way..I've also stitched more not I realize so a new pic needs to be taken.

This is the box of goodies that was sent to my Chatty Stitching Exchagers Adevent Exchange Partner, Joy Wortham in Newnan, GA.

These are my goodies under the tree from Joy Wortham in Newnan, GA in the CSE Advent Exchange. I love the snowflake wrapping paper and look at the cute tin and boxes!!! My gifts have been great too!! I will be posting pics of these soon also.

And here we have the 12 Days of Christmas items in the I Love Cross Stitch Yahoo Group. These items were sent to Val Stocker in Oakhurst, CA. I wanted to send myself to CA along wth the items but the post office wouldn't take me! lol

This is a close up of the Day 12 revealing item that should be opened today!

This is a Thanksgiving Sampler has been filed in the WIP drawer to be finished for next year. This isn't the latest memory card because there are leaves above the Let Us Give Thanks that I've stitched.

I also have been working on a stitched Christmas card that I hope to finish and mail very soon, a few ornaments that are to be given away as gifts so I cna't post these yet, but will.

SNOW DAY Dec 11, 2008

Anthony loved the snow!!

This is how much snow was on my car--a good few inches for this far south.

PIF Offer

I signed up for my first PIF from EvalinaMaria and got so lucky. She picked my name and I will be making a PIF gift for 3 people...

Thank you so much EvalinaMaria!!!

This is how it works:
If you would like to receive something made by me within the next 365 days, please comment on this post to say that you are interested. I will send a handmade gift to 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what that gift will be yet (other than it will be a stitched gift) and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week... LOL... but you will receive it within 365 days, I promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog (or - in your life - if you happen to be blog-less). I will take 3 people...and if there are more than 3, then I will do a drawing. In return, you must offer to do the same :)I will be taking sign ups until Friday, October 31 and winners will be announced November 1. Thanks for signing up!

What's a PIF? It stands for Pass It Forward or Pay It Forward, meaning pass forward a bit of kindness to make the world a better place.
