Twentieth Finish For 2010

I'm doing a small HD because I have a 'little' finish to share ;o) Here is Happy Skater by LHN -


This is such a cute ornament! I stitched it with the recommended fabric and threads. As I put the finishing touches on it last night, I told DH that this was for him :o) Here's a little known fact that I don't think I've shared before...he used to be a speed skater before I met him! And a great one at that.


I showed him The Merry Skater that I will be stitching next and explained that this one would be for me and that we'd have matching ornaments this year. A small smile creped upon his face and he said "We'll just have to pretend with yours." SA! LOL! Unfortunately a week and a half later I'm still dealing with sore blisters :o( They are getting better though!

Yesterday I got another nice surprise in the mail :o) I had won Day 30 on Missy's 31 Days Of Halloween Blog and this is what she sent me -


I borrowed this picture with her permission because the candy was already gone by this morning... I can't even explain how awesome the pinkeep is! It's stitched on 28 count black Jobelan with a velvet backing...oh so soft :o) I just found out the best part though...Missy stitched it with glow-in-the-dark DMC floss!!!! I didn't even know! I'll have to try it out tonight when the lights go out. LOL!

I want to thank Missy and Annette for hosting a full month of fun and surprises :o) The girls worked hard and it shows.

Happy skater looks nice. Hope those blisters heal soon. Do you think you would be able to take a picutre of the pinkeep glowing in the dark ?

Annie said...

Perfect ornament and so appropriate. Those blisters are sure taking their time to heal! These bodies can be so annoying.

And even more incoming goodies! Every day is like your birthday!

I can't believe how lucky you are. If this keeps up, you will need to add more room to your stitching room. Your Happy Skater looks great.

{{{Hugs and Love}}}

Hi Cathey,

Your newest finish is terrific!!
I think it's cool that your DH
used to be a speed skater and
now he has his own little Xmas
ornament to commemorate this

Cheeky comment from him about your
matching Merry Skater ornament
though. Just let him know that he
needs to give you some tutoring so
that you'll get better and maybe
give him a run (skate?) for his

Hope that the blisters heal up
real quick.

That pinkeep from Missy is
fantastic. Love the skull
on top of it. Did you get
that spider too?? What a
wonderful Halloween gift to
receive. That giveaway of
Missy and Annette's was so
freaking amazing and so
incredibly generous of them.

I love that the pinkeep will
glow in the dark. What will
they think of next??
