Happy Thanksgiving and blog update

Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. I will be enjoying Thanksgiving with my family at my Nephew and his family at their new home in the country.
I have been stitching on ornaments for Christmas gifts and the final fourth Little Women in the series for my niece. Therefore, my usual rotation of 15 has been a little slow right now. I have also been in 3 ornament exchanges and loving it. First Friendly Stitchers group has an unfinished ornament exchange and what fun. My partner was Mary and this is what I got from her and what I sent to Mary.
She sent several options for finishing and here is how I finished it.

 This is what I sent to Mary and the backing to go with it.
This is the ornament and the card and goodies I sent my partner in the 123 stitched group

This is the ornament and goodies I received from my partner. The stitched piece inside of the watch is so neat. It makes me want to do a few of them.

This is the progress on Amy , the fourth one in the Little Women Series by Bookes Books that I am stitching for my niece. This series has been fun to stitch as the colors are so great.
Also, finished another sled ornament "The Church" by Foxwood Crossings and made it into an ornament. I donated it to my friends Church Bazaar.
Here are the two ornaments that I am stitching on for gifts this year.
This is Christmas 2014 Doodle by Blueladie Designs

I ever put a few stitchers in a few WIPs from my rotation.
