Christmas Gifts.....finally and my 1st start of 2012

I am pretty embarrassed that it has taken me so long to post a picture of the gifts that I received. I think I did post a picture of the reindeer ornament, but I know I didn't show the other two.
The reindeer was an ornament exchange on one of the groups that I am in. I love this little cutie!
Next, is the 3 little snowmen on the let it snow pillow. This was stitched by my dear friend Carol. She saw this pattern & thought of me, because of my grandsons....three of them...three little snowmen!!! If only you could hear them say snowmen....so adorable! And before long, the cuteness of how they say it will be gone, because they will be saying it properly.
Last in the picture is an ornament from my dear friend Mylene. She & I have corresponded back & forth for several years & have done several exchanges.
I feel really bad that I didn't send any stitched goodies out this year for Christmas.
I also am posting a picture of my first start for the new year.(excuse the wrinkles & qsnap lines!) My husband 'learned' how to look at my wishlist on the 123 board & he found his favorite from among the list & purchased the chart & the flosses. I had told him not to worry about fabrics for anything, because I have quite a bit of fabric.
I thought it was great that this was his favorite of all I had listed, because this is my very favorite Bible verse...one I remind myself of when I think I can't do something......
I changed my blog background this morning, but the header wasn't showing up with the white, so I deleted it....
Gifts left to right: from Carol, Mylene and exhchange from Jacquie

New start 2012, gift from my husband
Happy New Year to all!!! May your stitching needles be flying!

I saw your other post about background and then it disappeared so I thought you had it figured out! I changed mine too and don't like that the header isn't centered! I also want to figure out how to put "tabs" across the top to take people to another site! Oh well. You received some nice stitching gifts and how cool he found your wishlist and bought what HE wanted you to stitch!!!

Great new start Shari. Lovely ornaments received. You can change the colour of your header in the template designer - advanced - font colour for header. Hope this helps. I did this one mine today - just realised its the same as yours.

So glad the little snowmen pillow made you smile, Shari :) I really enjoyed stitching it for you! I think that is so sweet that your husband picked something out for you to stitch for him!!
