Ornament SWAP

This is the SWAP ornament exchangepiece for Sharon. She is a really catlover so I chose two designs to stitch. The frontside has the PS Prairie Christmas. I changed the colours of the threads. Add some beads and a jinglebell.

The backside has a design from Brittercup and her initials. Both sides are stitched on 32 count Zweigart green linen. It's such a fun to have this private Christmas exchange. Can you imagine stitching the Christmaspieces during the whole year ? When Christmas arrives each member has 5 ornies from different people to put in the tree. Great idea from Angela isn't?
Sharon send me a private mail ( which I appreciated ) to let me know that she loves her pinkeep.

Thanks for visiting me and for the sweet comments.

Last weeks I have been stitching the 4 exchangepieces. This one is for Elisa. It's a LK chart from february, stitched on Zweigart linen. I painted the wooden heart in purple to let it fits with
the stitching design. The package arrives very fast in England. Glad that Elisa likes her exchangepiece.

Valentine is coming and it's really nice to see so many hearts on the blogs. This is an old one, which I made as a goodbye gift for Barbara. The free chart is from the Sampler girl. I have only changed the colours. It's stitched on hand-dyed linen (by myself) using Madeira silk.

Received from Marjorie.

Today the postman brought me a package from USA. I opened it with a big smile on my face. Have you ever seen such a gorgeous box? I'm so happy to receive a box because I love boxes. Marjorie made it for me.

She stitched the Summer Iris on hand-dyed linen using buttons to finish it. Even the inside of the box looks great. A lovely finish!!! Thank you so much, Marjorie!!!
