A finish & our annual ornie!

It's a dark and dreary rainy stormy day here today, so I will take a pic of my SAL tomorrow when the lighting isn't so dark. Not much was stitched yesterday on it, but I did get a little bit done on HofNW. So I'll post that tomorrow. We went to our Hungarian Cultural centre's annual picnic was wonderful to see old friends again! And talk some stitching! wooo hooo....we're planning a stash enhancement excursion in the hopefully near future. I need to enhance my Crescent Colors collection (you can't even call it that) is shamefully lacking. So I would like to work on that.

I do have a happy dance to share...It's LHN's Always and Forever. It's one that I've been wanting to do and have been working on it on and off for a month or so, and I finished that on Saturday night.

Design: Always and Forever
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Stitched on 28 ct. New Khaki
Fibres: Border: Six Strand Sweets - Chocolate covered cherries
Body Six Strand Sweets - Chocolate Peach

Stampede was great! We had our bbq beef on a bun. YUMMMMM And our mini donuts...Stampede is just not complete without the mini donuts. We had a good day, and left early enough so that we didn't run into the thousands of people that crowd in for the evening. So it was good. We bought our annual christmas ornament. There is a little booth there every year called Cowboy Christmas, and every year...well for the last 3 years, we've picked up an ornament from there. So this is our 2009 Christmas Together ornament. Isn't it adorable????

I love picking up ornaments from the different places that we've gone to. There are always so many happy memories to be remembered when they're brought out every year. Your LHN piece is great! It's always wonderful to have a finish!
