Our friend Mouse has received what I sent her so I can share with you.
"Little Mouse Stitcher" The Tailor of Gloucester
Apple Green Co. - Book 540
Fabric - 28ct Evenweave, DMC threads
Some goodies I included with the stitched piece for Mouse's project.
At the top is a matchbook needle holder I made her. Also sent her some planting seeds but they didn't
make it into the photo but she got them.
EMS 2015 Holiday Annual Ornament Exchange. My exchange partner lives in France - Corrine. This is the back side of the ornament I stitched for her.
"Merry Christmas With Love" by Tempting Tangles Designs
2015 JCS Christmas Ornament Holiday Issue
28ct Lambswool Linen
Some thread changes I used: WDW - Louisiana Hot Sauce, Moss, & GA - Blue Jay. Remaining threads DMC. I loved how the bicycle turned out. I added a tiny bell and a star cookie cutter mini from a package of buttons. Oh she liked everything I sent her.
For the same EMS Holiday Ornament exchange Jeannine (louison) - who is also in Frances, had my name.
Jeannine stitched me the cute Santa cat, a beautiful skein of thread (from Germany) and pretty post card. Thank you Louison! The ornament is already on my Christmas tree.
Alison - beautiful orange colored linen that was her grandmothers. Alison had a giveaway on her blog and I got it! WOOHOO!!!!
Alison also crocheted me a beautiful heart & rose sachet filled with lavender farmed from France. Smells heavenly. And a magnetic lavender bookmark - already in use:)
Thank you so much Alison. My plans for this fabric is to stitch "Midnight Ride" by Blackbird Designs. Plus I have a few other projects in mind..... Thank you Alison!!!
Tried to get a better photo up close of this pretty linen. It's gorgeous in person.
Very deep orange with red undertones. And it was Alison's Grandmother's!!!!
And lastly our carved Halloween pumpkin.
My husband and son carved it 1 week before Halloween. On the morning of Halloween we had to toss the pumpkin out. Yep there's a very good reason why the pumpkins are NOT to be carved more than a few days ahead of time!!!
With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
