Great mail! ... and a challenge for your stitching eyes

Look what lucky ole me got!

My Christmas in July Exchange from Anita in Beliguim. She made me not one but THREE lovely ornies and included all those cool goodies. And the card sings! Lol I got some strange looks in the office when people passed my door as I was opening the card. They’re just jealous because no one is celebrating Christmas in July with them!

Now, for the “quiz” – it’s not so much a quiz as a little challenge for you for entertainment purposes. I started this last night I’m wondering what you think it is. For helpful hints: it is nearly half done; it’s to be a Christmas ornie; it’s pictured in the correct direction.

Lol I just thought it would be fun to find out what people thought it was.

On other fronts, I’ve neglected picturing my over-1 version of this lovely Isa Vautier’s heart (pardon my blurriness)

I’m doing it in a Vicki Clayton silk and having a lovely time of it…. So long as the light is good!

Oh, one last thing. I felt I deserved to have a moment of triumph over my weekend desk accomplishments:

Not bad, eh? Thanks, I’m pretty proud.

Have a lovely rest of your day!

great package you got there, yes they are all jealous that you are already celebrating christmas.


Jennifer said...

I'd guess a penguin too.

GREAT job on the desk - you're really making some progress!

Hate to be a copycat, but my first impression was that it's a penguin. Then I scrolled down to comment and found that Karen and Jennifer had already suggested that. I'll be watching to see the answer!

Chiasmata said...

Ah, I'm going to say penguin too! It's just the right colours...

What an amazing exchange! It really must have felt like Christmas. :)

Kendra said...

I hate to echo the others, but my first thought was a penguin as well. But it's probably not what it appears to be, or else you wouldn't have asked. ;-)

You've piqued my curiosity...I want to know what it is!
