HoE Christmas Exchange for CarolS

Yesterday I received a lovely email from CarolS letting me know she had received the ornie I made for her for the HoE Christmas Ornament Exchange and, better yet, she thinks it's gorgeous :)
I chose to stitch a freebie from Plum Pudding NeedleArt, called Fa La La! When I saw this design I just knew it was perfect for Carol :) ! I used 40ct R&R Reproduction Linen (first time using this count ... and loved it!!) and stitched it with the called for DMC threads except the red one that I used WDW Garnet. I think it turned out super cute and have to stitch it again for myself one day :)

Ayer recibí un correo de CarolS diciendo que había recibido sano y salvo el adorno que le envié para el intercambio de navidad del grupo Hooked on Exchanging, y además que consideraba que era hermoso el adorno :)
Escogí bordarle un freebie de
Plum Pudding NeedleArt llamado Fa La La! Cuando ví el diseño me pareció que era perfecto para Carol :) Lo bordé sobre un lino 40ct Ice Cappuccino de R&R Reproduction (es la primera vez que uso un lino 40ct .... y me encantó!!) con los hilos DMC que indicaba el diseño expecto el rojo que lo sustituí por WDW Garnet. Creo que quedo muy lindo y definitivamente lo tengo que bordar otra vez para mí :)

This is adorable Carla! You did a great job. By the way I really enjoyed putting out my Halloween treat bag last month - the one you made for me last year, everyone who saw it loved it. :)

I just love how you finished Fa La La with the red and white beads...how clever, how charming! Would you happen to know if that chart is still available? Apparently Plum Pudding's Website is "under construction." Thank you for the inspiration to stitch this for my tree in 2010.
