Day 3 - Debbie's Challenge

Hello beautiful friends! This Sal is so much fun! I haven't done so many posts before everyday -lol!
Love getting to share with you my projects for this challenge. Thank you for your lovely comments.
Here's my new start for Day 3 (yesterday)...
 This kit was given to me by Hetti from the Netherlands. I am stitching this in memory of Nannie. The threads are softly scented of roses. I LOVE stitching with these threads so much. Every stitch I place breaks  the scent  open. Talk about stitching aromatherapy!!
I have plans to add some script into this design. Hard to see but I got the outline of the envelope done, and some petals of roses. On Hetti's blog she has offers many gorgeous free charts that she has designed, hope you have a look at her blog.

Saturday I received a envelope from Hetti! Yes the very same day I had already started stitching the kit she gave to me. Can you believe that? The same day I decide to stitch her kit and here I get mail from her!!! WOW! I was so surprised when I opened it. Hetti sent me two stunning lazer cut sparkly card/ornament. I have both of them on my stitchers tree. And she gave me a pretty skein of Nina's threads - Jingle Bells, scented DMC Chocolate thread. Hmm I have some ideas for this thread: Hot Cocoa or Valentine themed design.


And these darling super cute buttons. I think I am going to use them on a Christmas ornament finish. Just running ideas in my head. I love everything!  Thank you so very much Hetti!!
With my love and appreciation - Annette

I've never heard of scented threads either! Roses give me headaches - which is really unfortunate. Beautiful project you're working on and how funny her package arrived the very same day. Love the buttons! You've gotten a fantastic start to your challenge.

What a great gift, those buttons are really cute and will be great for ornaments! I didn't even know they made scented threads. The rose deign will be as pretty as it smells!

You are going gangbusters with your starts!

How pretty. I love that you are doing it for Nannie. I too have a scented caramel DMC floss from Michelle. I have never used it. I need to figure out what is best for it!

Dear Annette, I am very glad you received the enveloppe ;-))
Sorry for the late answer, some internet problems. But I am very glad you like the gifts and I am really surprised that the scented DMC floss is unknown in the USA.
Big Hug and XXX Hetti
