Winter exchange

I heard today from Nicki that she has received the winter exchange I sent to her and I am so happy to hear that she loved it.

Photobucket

The design is by CCN and is Winter welcome, I stitched it on 40ct R&R 1/2, its trimmed with aqua and clear glass beads.

I also received an award today from Nicki - thankyou so much I was really chuffed when I saw it it was really nice of you and really perked up my day.

The Rules:
Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.


Now, I will do my list of 10 tomorrow, but today I feel pretty lousy as I seem to have caught a virus and felt quite poorly for the past couple of days - so much so I haven't picked up a needle and stitched at all. I've been going to bed as soon as I get in from work and just sleeping and coughing, I haven't got the sniffles, just really painful joints and this horrid tickly cough and I ache everywhere including my head. So I haven't been around the computer much either.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and thankyou for all the lovely comments I have been receiving its so kind of you all.
Until tomorrow

As always Su - a magnificent finish! I love how the beads dress up the design. A very lovely gift indeed.

Hi Su, Sorry you are feeling poorly - hope you are better soon! Please, please please, tell us how to attach the beads to the bottom of the bag - your finishing is just *so beautiful*!!

Have you had any snow today? I went up to Wye Needlecraft in Bakewell today and they had hail/sleet and the radio was saying Cumbria had loads of snow and I thought of you.....

Hugs,

Su,
This is so lovely. The beaded trim really makes it special. I love the cool frosty colours and, having also seen it on Nicki's blog, love the way you have complimented it with the soft blue fabrics and pretty little wooden decoration :>) As always your packages are very lovingly put together.
I do hope you are beginning to feel better :>)
Love Angela
