MAW Exchange arrives, ABC SAL and my Stitchy Tree

I am in the MAW Exchangers and Kathy fulfilled my wish by making me a really lovely Pyn Keepe. Here is a snap of the piece -

Kathy also included a travel ort box that collapses - which will certainly come in handy in a couple of weeks when I travel to Florida for Christmas. Thank you so very much Kathy - it is just lovely!!!!

Here is a snap of the ABC SAL with my final choice of silk Belle Soie - Plush Plum and teddy Bear on LL 32 ct vintage Barley -

I am really liking this combination and think that the final piece will look very nice. I also mentioned I had decorated my Faux feather tree - and it sits on an old washstand that was my G-G-Grandmothers in our front hall - here is a pretty sucky snap as I couldn't get far enough back or the right lighting to get a nice picture -

The star on top is a really big Weiss brooch of Rico's - before next Christmas I will have a stitched star for the top - but for now it has a sparkly. Thank you all once again for all my lovely stitched pieces that decorate my little tree - I see it and think of all you wonderful stitchers that have contributed to our Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by -
Take care,
edgar

That pyn keepe is gorgeous!!! And I don't know Edgar, but I think you might need a bigger tree next year (some of those vintage feather trees are 7ft tall~~of course their prices are equally impressive too!) It looks wonderful :)

I love your Christmas tree, Edgar! And dear Kathy really spoiled you with her gorgeous pinkeep. And, oh my, your ABC SAL!!! Just fab. Really.

Merry Christmas.

What a lovely collection of ornaments. You have some very talented stitchy friends!

Melissa said...

Yup, I think the concensus is you need a bigger tree. How wonderful to be so blessed with all these wonderfully stitched ornaments, but then you stitched lots to give away too. What goes around comes around is true!

The pinkeep from Kathy is gorgeous, and I really like the colours of the ABC Sal.

Irene said...

Oh you will definitely need a bigger tree. The pin keep is very nice and I'm liking the colors in your ABC SAL.
