Spring Exchange with a Friend in Finland

Irmeli and I did a personal spring exchange and I received her gift right before Rex and I went out of town for a few days. I am so thrilled with the package! She stitched a lovely design called "Patchwork Spring" by Jardin Prive. Its so so pretty and I just love it. Irmeli included a easel to display as well. She put a cross stitch magazine, key fob, and of course we thought our packages needed to include some sweets! They sure were delicious and didn't last long! Irmeli included a couple of pieces of gorgeous fabrics! I even love the wrapping paper she wrapped things in...its cross stitched wrapping paper! How cool is that?!

Thanks so very much Irmeli...I love everything! For my exchange I stitched Irmeli Heart in Hand's Celebrate Spring, finished into a pillow. I changed the colors to coordinate with the fabric I chose. I also made Irmeli a pincushion, sent some scissors, needles, note pads and chocolate!
It was a fun exchange and I am sure Irmeli and I will be doing another again:) Thanks for stopping by and hope you are able to put needle and thread to fabric. Happy Stitching, Wendy Jo
