Jennie's Rudolph

A new stitcher is born!!!!! Two weeks ago today, I taught my friend Jennie how to stitch. She took her project home & had it done before I saw her again that following Sunday. We were not able to get together last Tues., but she was able to come over today.
She brought along her finished project. Not only did she finish the stitching, she finished the stitching into an ornament. Her backing fabric is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!! I like how hers looks better than mine!!!! GREAT JOB JENNIE, since I know you read my blog!!!!!
I had printed several freebie patterns for her to look at today. We picked out the one we thought we would like to do. (I do the same thing as she does, along with her!!!!) We then went in to find a piece of fabric. She saw this piece of opal. aida & said it was perfect. She asked if it was big enough for both of us. I measured & it was close enough. Not quite 3 inches extra all around, but close enough!!!
So....we both started working on this project. Mine will take a back seat for a while, since I have so many other things that MUST be done before Christmas, but next time we get together, I will pull it out!!
Happy Thanksgiving one & all!

Shari, your friend did a super job on her first piece.

So now that she has the stitching bug she will have to start her own blog. LOL
