A Christmas Exchange Arrived

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I do thank you for the warm comments and emails about yesterdays posting.  I think it is very important that we always remember the sacrifices both art home and abroad everyone makes and has made for the last 400 or so years.... 
____________

If you recall I took part in the HOE Christmas box Exchange - and I receive a wonderful Box from Michelle.  This morning I heard from my partner that I sent to - Diana from over at Log Cabin Life, she received the Christmas Box I made for her.  Here are a couple of snaps...

I stitched up a Prairie Schooler piece.  Book #32, "Christmas Ark" - using the called for DMC Floss on 32ct linen.  I first painted the unfinished box attached the stitching and then lined it with a green satin like fabric....  and here is the inside and the goodies ...


I really enjoyed stitching this piece as I always do when making something for an Exchange.

Last night I was stitching away on another Exchange piece so no snaps of that piece... yet.

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

I am sure your exchange partners are always delighted with your stitched gifts ... I know those Junior Mint Peppermint Crunches wouldn't last vry long in my house. I've been too busy for exchanges since the Fall Pyn Keepe Exchange that you moderated but I hope to get involved again in January, especially if there are any Valentine's Day exchanges going on ... I am itching to stitch some heart charts I have on hand.
