They Came Bearing Gifts!

Lesley brought this cute Australian Tree Frog! I need to find a good spot for him, but not too close to my stitching! I have named him Freddy.

I received this beautiful tray from the Canadians. It was stitched by Lynn and framed in a tray made by her husband, Marcel. It can be hung on the wall or used as a tray. It is just wonderful! I will use it often.

I also received a lovely piece of fabric that Lynn handpainted. It was done specifically to use for the two Judith Kirby Halloween houses. I can't wait to start stitching that one!

Patsy made this lovely beaded ornament for me! I have another ornament that Patsy made a few years ago, and both of them will have a place of honor on my Christmas tree for many years to come.

I received a Gnome Needlepoint kit from Kim, but forgot to take a picture. It will made a lovely pillow.

And then, after everyone had gone home, I found this gift certificate that a really sneaky person left for me to find! I will use it to get some more frames for the mountain of stitching that is yet unfinished.

Thank you all for the lovely gifts. It was not necessary at all, but appreciated.
