have not received

I've not gotten my ornament yet. :((

My exchange to Monique

I've heard that my ornie has been received, so I thought I'd show some pictures.

Monique, my recipient, doesn't have a blog, so it wasn't easy deciding on something to make, so I decided to try something new, and made a felt ornament from a book I bought when a nearby LNS closed. I made it a little jazzier than the original design called for, and did more stitching rather than use Bondaweb, and I really enjoyed the whole thing!

I can feel a whole host of little felt ornies might be in my future...

This exchange is going rather well!

Girls, I'm happy how everything is going with this exchange! Only 3 ornaments that still have to be sent (and I have contact with those senders) and 10 left to be received.
It's a lot better than the first exchange! I think it does help a lot that it's not Holiday season ;)
I'm already thinking about a new ornie-exchange... "It's never early enough for Christmas" ;) But I'll come back to that later!

Hugs, Simone

Hello, I would like to Ina for the wonderful package that I received in the mail, a box full of goodies, Thank you so much Ina!!!! I will try to post picture later, Susan Locke

Amy stitched me this sweet ornament with a star button that is to die for. Aw.... And wow, she hit my wish list and sent me a chart I really wanted... plus the WDW linen and NPI silk for it. Thank you Amy! You went way above and beyond. I shall cherish this forever...

My ornament arrived!

Here is my lovely exchange from Valerie - it was great to get such a sweet ornament by one of my favourite designers!

I enjoyed all the other bits and pieces too - the very funny card, cute chart, festive fabbie and threads, needles in my preferred size (28s! yay!) and not forgetting the chocolate - which I have been very restrained with and not eaten yet!

Valerie says that this is her first ornament finish - I'm not sure I believe her, it is so neat! LOL - it has been finished in a similar way to a pin keep, which is great for me as I will be able to display it on my shelves come Christmas time. Thank you so much, Valerie!

I'm getting a bit anxious though about the ornament I mailed out - it should be there by now...

It's in the mail

I mailed out a package to my partner today. I enclosed some extra goodies that i have been collecting for her. Hope she likes it.

Exchange received from Ruth B

My exchange arrived from Ruth in LA today.  Ruth stitched a very pretty holly ornament which she fringed and backed with felt. Isn' t that pretty?  She also enclosed two lots of finishing fabric, three skeins of threads and some cute buttons. Thank you Ruth - a lovely exchange.

And thank you Simone for arranging this exchange.

Oops I Did It Again...

I forgot to post that I sent my ornament out on July 1st. I hope that my partner likes it and the other goodies that I enclosed along with it.

from Chantal to Anita.

This is what my mom Anita received from Chantal.

she liked it a lot.



received my xmass exchange


yesterday I received my xmass exchange from Carol.

thank you very much Carol.

I've fallen behind on this exchange. I have no excuse except laziness. LOL I kept putting it off and putting it off, realized Tuesday that I had only a few days left to get my partners ornament stitched. All I have left is the back stitching and the finishing. I'm so sorry for the delay. The ornament should be in the mail tomorrow.

Ornament from Simone

Here's the lovely ornament I received from Simone. Id like to know the designer - will you tell us that Simone? Anyway it's finished like a pinkeep in a wonderful triangular shape with ribbon around the edge that says "Happy Holly Days!"

Here's the entire package.

Thanks so much for your gifts Simone. The ornament will make a great addition to my tree this year! And thanks too for organizing this exchange. Much easier (less pressure) to stitch ornaments in July!
