HoE Christmas Ornament Received

I received my Christmas ornament from Sharon C. on the HoE blog. Sharon stitched me a design taken from Sisters & Best Friends-Buddies. I love snowmen so I can leave this out past Christmas and enjoy it.

Sharon also sent some goodies. Below are some pics of my package.

Thanks so much Sharon. I love my ornament and the goodies too!

Ornament Exchange on the HoE blog arrives in Finland!

I got a lovely e-mail from Irmeli P. in Finland that my Christmas ornament exchange arrived to her safe and sound and she is overjoyed by the whole package which made my day!

The ornament I decided to stitch for her was from the 2008 JCS ornament issue by Country Cottage Needleworks. I chose this design because Irmeli loves snowmen, the color blue and she loves CCN! So this was simply the perfect design for her and she can leave it out way past Christmas and enjoy it.

I also sent her a reindeer scissor fob that I stitched up as she also likes reindeer. I also included some fabric cuts, a scissor sack, threads and material. Here are some pics of what I sent Irmeli.

Glad you loved your package Irmeli!

Christmas Exchange on the Crazy Exchange Received

Bianca in the Netherlands let me know she received the Christmas ornament I sent her for the exchange and she really likes it.

I stitched her a design from JBW's Christmas Keepsakes II and used Vikki Clayton silks that I received in an exchange and enjoyed using them. Here is a pic. (I had also sent her a scissor sack but forgot to include that in the pic. Should have had that second cup of coffee!)

Christmas Ornament Exchange on the Crazy Exchange Blog

I participated in a Christmas exchange and I received a lovely Christmas ornament yesterday from Teresa in Australia. I just love snowmen and Teresa couldn't have picked a better design to stitch for me. Teresa also sent a handmade card that is a decoration all on its own! I really love them both.

here are some pics:

Thanks so much Teresa.

Floss Tag Exchange on the HoE Blog

I have been busy working on some Christmas exchanges and gifts and have been slacking in the posting dept. on my blog.

I received a lovely floss tag from Marie P. and I absolutely love it. I already have my floss for my current project on it and am using my new scissors from Marie as well!! She sent me 2 fat quarters which I know I am going to find some good use for, plus needles, threads and buttons..she really sent some great treats!

Thanks so much Marie. I love my floss tag and goodies!!

Here are some pics:

I stitched for Shay T. and choose a design by Stitchy Kitty called Stitch and Bee Happy. The actual leaflet is called Lives to Stitch. I also included some goodies. Here are some pics:
