Exchanges sent and received

I have sent the following exchanges and they have now been received.


This biscornu is from Gaby for the Fall exchange on the Friends through Threads blog. It is a pretty large biscornu and I just love it's size. I really like biscornu's and want to have a collection of them. I haven't had much time to stitch any, so this is a nice addition to what I already have.

Here is the rest of the exchange. Gaby knitted me a pair of socks, and yes Gaby they fit wonderfully:). Plus Gaby beaded a very nice necklace and sent me a pattern book and some gummies. Thank you Gaby.

I forgot to get this pumpkin in my exchange picture from Gaby. Her son Simon made me this cute pumpkin. Thank you Simon.

Then today when I got home from work this little beauty was waiting for me. It is from the FTT blog Christmas ornament exchange. Vonna stitched me this wonderful ornament by Prairie Schooler from "Songs of the Seasons" book. It was stitched over one on 25 count. It is stitched and finished wonderfully. Thank you so much Vonna.
This is the ornament that I stitched for the FTT Christmas ornament exchange. My ornament went to Wendy Jo. It was a freebie design that I stitched with DMC 4210.

I stitched this floss tag and needle minder for a personal exchange with Linda. Linda does not have a blog right now, but I meet her through the Fair and Square blog. I stitched a part of LHN Colonial Women. Then I made the needle minder from the instructions on the Blackbird designs blog.

Here are the rest of the goodies I sent Linda.

I am waiting for Gaby to receive my Fall exchange which was sent last Monday. I will post those pictures once it arrives.

Another great set of exchanges sent and received. And as of right now I don't have anymore commitments for exchanges and I plan on getting some stitching done for my family and myself. I look forward to more exchanges next year.
