Exchanges Fini

My last two Exchanges have arrived in there new homes. I am still participating in Please Pass The Biscornu but as for now I am not committing to anything else.

I have so many things in my stash that I want to stitch that I am going to concentrate solely on them. Exchanges are so much fun and it is nice to receive those surprise packages in the mail but for now I am going to hold off for a couple months.

I stitched an Altoid Tin Topper for Amanda in Italy. She was my partner in  Tiny Treasures Too 
It was a fun easy stitch and wasn't hard to finish at all.
I made the twisted cord to match and selected the black fabric to accent the tiny bit of black  in the design. I couldn't find the scissors I wanted to use but I think the gold ones are okay.

I attached a magnet strip for needles and sent a South Carolina refrigerator magnet. I am really happy that it made it's journey safely although it took almost 3 weeks. Talk about stress lol.

28 Count Jobelin

The Biscornu that I stitched for Marjorie also arrived safely in California. I chose a design from a Russian website, not sure which one I found it on. I stitched our initials on the back

28 count white Jobelan and
Crescent Colors Bethlehem

I am not feeling too well again today but have to work tonight. going back to bed until time to leave. Hope everyone has a good stitching day!

One last note, I have been stitching on my Shores but I don't have an update picture.

Great job! I especially like the tin. You site is coming along nicely, I'm still partial to the cat prints.

So lovely exchanges! Last year I was also enjoying to make exchange presents but this year I have so little time and so many plans that I have decided to take a break. Maybe next year I join again some groups :)

Hope you feel better soon!
