More Photos & PIF Update

I saw on the Quaker Inspired blog that my exchange was received all the way in Scotland so here is the picture of what I stitched. It is the Quaker turtle from The Workbasket and I finished it as a cube. I really enjoyed stitching it and hope to stitch the cat, mouse, and a frog some time in the future.

Here is a photo of my first floss ring tag. I used Little House Needleworks new Neighborhood chart which comes with an alphabet that I used to stitch the back piece shown below. Talk about EASY! I know I will be making plenty of these. I have already stitched another one and started gathering charts to stitch more. I used the tutorial on Staci's blog and it was very easy to follow! Maybe it's just me, but I think every stitcher should have a dish of these by their stitching chair just waiting to be kitted up with new projects!
Dani has asked to be my third PIF recipient so now I need to get to work and stitch something lovely for my three. If you are still interested in signing up for one, please check out their blogs. The other two are linked in previous posts.
Have a great day!

I love your turtle especially the colors. I'm working on a floss tag also. I just found your blog and was looking at some older post and saw your "Count Your Blessing" needle case. How clever and cute. Can you give me directions or point the way for me? I'm very new to finishing techniques. In the past I framed everything. So I'm trying to branch out. Thank you for your help.
