Exchange & WIP Progress

My last exchange of the year has been finalised and we are now able to show you the pictures.
For the Stitched With Love Christmas exchange I had to send to Kaye this time and this is what I sent in her package.

I stitched "Happy Ho Ho Day" by The Trilogy.
I found this cute set of plastic knives and forks with baubles on the end and included those, along with some felt ornies, fabric, ribbon and some other Christmas essentials.

I received from Ellen this year and here is what she sent to me.

I just love this ornie that she stitched for me and the gorgeous felt robin decorations.  Thank you Ellen for such lovely treasures.

I have also been stitching away on my new WIP Carriage House Samplings "Sarah Spurr" and using 40ct for the very first time.  It takes a little getting used to but I love the way it looks on the fabric.  I'm stitching it on a piece of Newcastle Days Gone By.

Next post I will share some Christmas gifts received from friends.
Until next time, happy stitching
