And here is the group gift to Karen, who hosts the monthly Stitch Inn for the last 16yrs or more.
It is the Liberty Hill Halloween House and the pumpkin woman was handmade by Carla! It is amazing! If you love the pumpkin lady, Carla does take orders!
Karen made the wool stocking all done in satin ribbon flowers and lace, Maureen stitched up the pincushion and also made the primitive needle case, such sweet gifts!

The little stockings were stitched by Lori, and Joan made the candy cane pillow.! Sheila stitched the small medal slide that held the needlework, along with a needle minder and she made the gift box as well!!! Awesome work!
Kris stitched up the Blackbird Design and JoAnn did the box, beautifully done!

The pincushion inside the mason jar lid was made by Barb, the picture "Caroline by Goode Huswife" was stitched by Joyce, and Rebecca did the SB needle roll, but made it into a little pocket, with a sweet little strawberry included, all so pretty!

Here is a close up the strawberry pincushion I stitched. It is a reproduction of antique pin cushion by Threads of Gold. It was done on 40ct with weeks threads, the initals JK were stitched over one. I used black vintage rayon seam binding for the rouching, and then put a silver shade 4mm swarovski onto black head pins. It had just a bit of sparkle, made with love for Joyce!

Now for the gift exchange goodies! I stitched the strawberry pincushion, Carla did the needlepunch and Linda made the pillow! Linda had my name so I am the lucky owner of this sweet litlle pillow, I love it!!

We all brought a covered dish to share, everything was so delish!!

More gifts and furry friends!

Under the tree lots of gifts and JoAnn's collection of Lori Baker Bears and Rabitts!
