I just saw this (I think the Forum has been acting up a bit lately). I hope we get enough people to do this because it really is fun.

So, here I go:

fccs
USA
willing to ship anywhere (no one with cat allergies as my work always has some extra fibers attached :-) )
I like traditional, religious, cute - I'm easy

Okay, who's going to be next? Let's get party started!

OK...I'm in for the exchange again. I like anything, even religious. I am always delighted to have an ornament that has been stitched by a fellow member.

I am in Canada and will ship anywhere. I do not have any pets, do not smoke, and have no allergies. Really looking forward to the fun of it all.

Well, I thought it might be nice to hear how everyone is progressing - or not, as might be the case. Very early on I picked a pattern I wanted to complete for the exchange. I was liking it very much until a thread color really didn't do well on the fabric I am working on. There really are not a lot of realistic options, so I may just start over. I will think on it until the weekend and then decide. My very vocal work colleagues will certainly give me their opinions tomorrow. Glad there is lots of time left though.

I got stuck with the design a little bit (I'm making it myself), but now it's done and I started stitching :)
