Patti suggested that Angela and myself did a 3 way ornament exchange for Christmas we each made one for each other which I thought was a great idea.
This is the one I stitched for Angela above (as shown in a previous posting), well here below is the wonderful one that Angeal stitched for me, its beautifully stitched and finished and is a particular favourite of mine I do so love those birds.
For Patti I thought I would stitch her a strawberry, and the perfect choice for me to stitch was Blackbird Designs Quaker strawberry. Its stitched on 32ct Douglas Fir linen.
Patti stitched for me my very first Merry Cox ornament and its so beautful, I really love it. The trim Patti has used is so pretty and perfect for the colours that she so perfectly stitched it in.
I also got some nice goodies from both ladies, some stunning silk fabric and a silver dololly and the best fob which Patti said her husband made it matches my dovo scissors perfectly.
From Angela I received some hand-dyed silk mori and some hand dyed lace, which I will put to great use.
Thankyou so much ladies for such a great exchange and I really hope that we do another again, that would be really great.
We have had a quiet Christmas but non-the-less its been lovely, with nana not being physically with us Christmas Day was a bit different this year but of course thats only to be expected.
I had some lovely gifts, a few stitchy things, I also have a few stitching finishes to show that I made as gifts and of course Yuko's gift parcel to show, so hopefully that will be tomorrow. Hope everyone is enjpying the Christmas holidays and have had a wonderful Christmas, I appreciate all your good wishes and lovely comments that you have left me, you are all so very kind.
