WOW! A Great Mail Day

I had the best mail day yesterday, receiving 3 exciting things from around the world.

First up I received a beaut snowman from Jacq in the Netherlands, I entered a competition on her blog and was selected to receive a hand made gift by her, this gorgeous snowman is wonderful and I will definately be displaying him this year at christmas time. Thank you soo much Jacq, I will be treasuring this little guy.

Second, I received my HOE Mattress Pincushion exchange from Kate L, she stitched a sampler design on a lovely purple colour hand dyed linen, plus the extras she included will really come in handy. Thank you Kate.

And finally I received back a robin that was sent out last year when I was stitching on aida. It went out to 5 ladies around the world. I really like the final piece and I think I will make it into a long pillow when I dig my sewing machine out. The pattern was in an old cross stitch magazine and I liked the way that each girl could represent each lady that was stitching it, that is why I had them include their names above them.
I sent out my SBEBB Pumpkin Patch exchange and my HOE Mattress Pincushion exchange today, they are both off to European destinations. I will post pics when they are received.

Well I really hope you like my piccies today. Thank you to all for your lovely comments on my snowman robin, I am super pleased with it, the ladies did a wonderful job for me. Now to finish it.

I am currently working on some christmas ornies, 1 down, 2 to go and I have a personal Snowman exchange coming up that I have to think about aswell.

Happy stitching everyone.
