I'm a Chillin' Out

Well, on one hand I am literally Chillin' Out here at home spinning on my stationary bike this evening and catching up on my blogging...I am, also, Chillin' Out as the weather here has been in the low to mid-70s during the day and the mid-50s at night - the perfect weather for keeping the windows open! And, when it is time to decorate the Christmas tree, it too will be Chillin' Out when it is adorned in this...
This cute ornament travelled all the way from Canada and Angela P's and took only 16 days to arrive (yikes!). I know that she was stressing out about it, but for me it was well worth the wait. Isn't it adorable?
For the Ornament Swap, Angela asked all of us to submit what our favorite designers were and what we liked & disliked regarding ornaments. My answer? I wanted everyone in the group to stitch something that represented them. According to the card, Angela said:
This is my favorite Lizzie Kate Snowman, it is very "me"

Thank you Angela, I love it!

Receiving that in the mail got my week off to a good start...although, if weeks start on Sunday then it was already off to a good start because Sunday afternoon I met up with Valerie and Brandy at Needle in a Haystack. We shopped a little, stitched a little and chatted...much :) It was a nice way to spend the afternoon. But now I am ready to kick myself...for yesterday I was gathering my stitching things in preparation for my upcoming trip to Minnesota for hockey tournament. I was kitting up Family Sampler by LHN and couldn't find any fabric that was the correct size. Ugh, and I was just at NiaH! Well, maybe while I am in Minnesota, I will make a trip out to Stitchville USA.

Well, it is time to put a close to this post, so stay well and be happy and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

It is a perfecly stitched and finished ornament and will look perfectly wonderful on your tree :)

A trip to Minnesota and visiting the Stitchville shop sounds like a great thing :)

I love Angela's snowman ornament! Your tree is going to be so pretty!

Don't you hate kitting up and finding you are missing ONE thing? And it's usually something very important too!
