More Exchanges to Share

First today I received my HoE Floss Tag Exchange from Ellen. Ellen stitched me a beautiful floss tag with a purple peacock on it. On the back she put our first initials.

Ellen lives in Singapore and she says that this is her first exchange. She did a superb job for her first one. She sent me lots of goodies; a bag of assorted buttons, 2 fat quarters of purple fabbies, some very cute mini clothespins with birds on them, lots of different purple ribbons, some cotton lace, a ring of course for my floss tag, 2 DMC variegated threads, 2 DMC variations threads, a very pretty purple beaded scissor fob/cap and a gorgeous purple beaded angel that is a cell phone fob (which is already on my phone). Love it! Thank you Ellen, everything is just perfect.

I also received my Private Thanksgiving exchange from Cathy B. She stitched a Lizzie Kate design and finished it as a cube. It is gorgeous. Autumn/Thanksgiving is my most favorite time of the year so this is a very fun piece to display.

Of course, Cathy also gave me some great goodies. She must have checked my wish list as she gave me "Yule Game Board" by The Primitive Needle. She also gave me the fabric and fibers for the Yule Game Board, some #28 petite needles, a thanksgiving hand towel and a very cute turkey. This was a very great exchange. Thank you so much Cathy!

And, if all that from Cathy wasn't enough, she also gave me a little something for my birthday. Cathy made me a fob for my Roberta scissor's. I can't tell you how happy I am about this because now I don't have to decide which fob to stitch and I don't have to stitch one.

Thanks for everything, Cathy. I love all of it.

Then, I heard that Laura, from the Make A Wish Exchange, received her wish I sent her. Laura wished for a Shepherds Bush design in any finish. I stitched "Sheep In The Meadow" and finished it on a clothespin, which can either just stand on display or can be used as a pattern holder.

Thanks again to everyone for the great exchanges and thanks for visiting my blog.
Have a great weekend.

Very glad that you received my parcel. As this is my first exchange, I get worried when it took so long to reach you. Happy to hear that you like what I stitch for you and the goodies as well.

I love your blog, you always have lovely things to show.

I signed up for Google Alerts. They give me news from any site where the word "floss" is used because our family company makes Gripit Floss Holders. They make it easy for people to floss their teeth. But, clearly I learned today that dental floss is different than the floss you use. If you or your readers want an easier way to floss their teeth, Gripits can be seen in action at
