Time to get caught up

My Mattress pincushion arrived the other day from Anna.
She stitched, over one, a wonderful French design called Winter Night.
Anna added some fabric to the back, and it matches the design on the front perfectly.
Anna also sent these goodies: a pattern from Praiseworthy Stitches called The bird's Carol, along with some fabric for finishing, 2 skeins of DMC precious metal effects, a skein of Sampler Thread called Storm, a wire flower ornament and an incense holder. It was a great exchange. Thank you Anna.

My Halloween Ornament from Donna arrived a couple of weeks ago. It is from All Season's Ornament Exchange group I belong to. This is boney, you can't tell by the pic but he has lovely red eyes!!! He is very cute!!
My Halloween exchange from the HoE also arrived a couple of weeks ago.
Olga stitched this Bent Creek design and finished it into a pin keep.

Olga also sent these goodies: some ribbon, fabric, Mill Hill buttons, a thread counted and a needle case. The needlecase comes in real handy as I have a serious needle fetish.
Thank you Olga.

And lst but not least here is the Think Pink exchange I received from Chris.
She did a great job with this pin keep. I really liked the beading she put around the edge.
Chris also included some beads, fabric, a small butterfly fob, which is on my cellphone and a date book. Thank you Chris. I enjoyed this exchange.

Thank you to all of you for these exchanges. I apologize that I didn't post these exchanges to my blog sooner. Time just seems so short.

I also have some exchanges to post that I have sent. I will do a separate post for those.

Until next time, Happy Stitching and don't forget to add a comment to the October 12 posting for my blogoversary drawing.

Actually the hand-made leaf is just an ornament, I forgot to write that it was meant as an ort collector, for instance :)
