No. 1 Ornie Swap & Bent Creek Exchange

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and happily stitching away.
September is my month to receive in the Ornament Swap group.  I'm soo excited, I cant wait to see what I will be receiving from my dear stitching friends.
This is my first ornie to arrive and its stitched by my dearest friend Angela.

LK Tiny Tidings 15
Stitched on 28ct Bone Jobelan using floss as charted.

What a cutie!

I am also in a private exchange with Angela at the moment, we do one every year and the theme for this one was any Bent Creek design.  Well I also received mine in the same parcel, lucky me!!
Here is the gorgeous piece that Angela stitched for me.

Bent Creek "Signs of Winter"
Stitched on 28ct Mushroom Evenweave using DMC.
Finished as a flatfold

Absolutely love it, dont you!!! 

Angela's piece from me is still making its way to her along with her birthday goodies, so I will have to wait till she receives that before I can show you here.
Thanks Angela for another enjoyable exchange.
Until next time, happy stitching
