I've been receiving some lovely exchanges and I've been really bad about showing everyone pictures ... so grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the pictures :)
I received this lovely package from Elza from an exchange on the Christmas Ornament Exchange blog. Now this was much more than a ornament for my tree .. Elza stitched a very sweet design and fastened it on the bottom of a fabric box. Along with this lovely box, Elza sent me a Christmas journal and a string of St. Nicholas'.
KarenSC had my name for the Pals ornament exchange .. look at the box of goodies she sent, along with the cutest reindeer ornament. I love how it's finished .. the buttons on the back are an adorable touch :)
Today's mail brought my Round 10 Fair and Square squares from Monique. How can you not smile at this cute ladybug!
and look, a little extra from Monique. My very own reindeer floss ring .. matches the threadholder I ordered from her last week! lol way too cute :)
Still with me?? Need a refill yet? lol .. I do .. brb! ok .. I'm back :) Of course I've been stitching for these exchanges too .. here's a couple of things I can show you .. the rest haven't shown up at their new homes yet.
I had Carol's name for the Christmas Ornament Exchange. I had lots of fun stitching this JBW design for her. I was really pleased with how it turned out .. thanks for new techniques I learned from the classes with Jane Timmers.
Don't know if you remember, but Natasha one my 2nd blogiversary. Here's the biscornu I stitched. The design is from Praiseworthy, it was a kit with the greatest glass beads. Loved the colors, but I didn't care much for the fabric, it was a bit too flimsy for me. I also included some floss and some fabric ...
Wow, I do think I'm done for now .. aren't ya glad! lol .. I'll leave you with a picture of the newest addition to my reindeer collection .. DH's birthday was on the 3rd. We went to dinner and a movie with the kids on Saturday night. We went to Starbucks before the movie .. I'm kinda addicted to their pumpkin spice lattes :) anyway, look what came home with me .. aren't they adorable!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend .. get all those Christmas decorations up yet? Is your shopping all done?? I wish I could say, to both .. hopefully we'll get the tree and it will be all decorated by the weekend.
Oh and thank you to everyone that stops by and leaves a comment .. I really enjoy reading them. Have a great week everyone!
