A Couple of Exchanges to Share

I participated in a Secret Sisters Christmas Exchange that was on the Legacy Board. I had Valeri's name and just heard that she received my package.

I sent Valeri the Holiday box of DMC Floss, a thread counter, a package of needles, thread heaven, a snowman photo holder (which makes a great pattern holder) and a sample of gloves in a bottle. It sounds like she was pleased with it.

Over on the Make A Wish, Amy wished for a smalls done in redwork. I chose to do a biscornu. I stitched the February Heart from "A Prairie Year" by Prairie Schooler. I had to adjust the pattern a little to make room for the button. It is stitched on 28ct. Antique White Lugana with DMC Variations #4210. I was very pleased in how it turned out.

Well, that is all I have for now. I need to go do some serious stitching.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

The biscornu is just lovely. I'm always surprised to see what you can do with PS designs.
