Are you Interested in some Christmas fun?

I am getting in the Christmas mood.
I know it is only October but I just can't help it.
Look what has started at my house:

I have been asked to do some private Christmas Ornament Exchanges recently.
And now.....
has started.....
So, I thought I would ask if there is anyone else who would like to exchange a Christmas ornament/small with me this year?  I will pick just a few more names & then if I have time I will most likely send out some RAK's when the holidays draw near.
(Now remember I have 4 children & I work full time so If I do not pick your name it is only because there is just one of me - If I could I would send ornaments to all of you!!!!!!)

Edit: Stitchers have been notified : Exchange is closed for 2011
Thank you all so much !!!

I am hoping I have posted this early enough to allow enough time to stitch an ornament stress free.
Please email me if you are interested (followers only)
(This is what happens when they call me off from work & I stitch a gazillion Christmas embroidery pieces - lol - It's so motivating ;)

She is such a cutie !!
I love the colors and I think the threads just pop on this fabric.
