Black Bird Designs Exchange 6

I have received word that my exchange partner (Mare) has received her gift, so I feel free to post the photos now.  This design was from the Honeysuckle Manor booklet, and is stitched on 32 count platinum using Crescent Colors Plum Paisley.   I made it into a pocket for the front of a purse I thought would work well for a stitching bag.  I also made a needle minder from a portion of another BBD pattern called : "Keepsake Box and Pinkeep" loose feathers pattern 33.

Christmas Help !!!!

I was going through some old boxes today and found this:

It is a Christmas Stocking my mother had started to make for my brother - He has since passed away & I would love to finish it - I have no idea what the pattern is or whom it was designed by.  Is anyone out there familiar with it -
Please let me know if you recognize it  - I would so appreciate it !!!

Quilt Ball Ornament #1

Here is a great idea for using scraps - This ornament was made from fabric scraps & left over small bits of linen.
I think it will look lovely on my tree :)
