Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the winds where and still are fierce and blowing here in the Bay area - with some very heavy gusts... all this brought in the cool/cold temps over night and now we shiver and the four hairs on my head or all over the place!!
Today I wanted to talk about a wonderful package that came in the mail yesterday. As many of you know I am one of the Moderators over on the HOE/HOE II - I really enjoy exchanging with other stitchers and always have. Well, I got a wild hair about Christmas coming up so quickly a month or so ago and so I got an exchange up and running to make Christmas Boxes. The mail date is today, and mine will be going out this morning, but I was on the receiving end yesterday. My Stitching Partner was Michelle and she sent me a wonderful package.
I opened the box.....
and peeking out was a really cute Snowman. After taking everything out I found that Michelle had sent a great exchange.....
Out tumbled some totally cute "candy"soaps, a Star ornament, some delicious chocolates, Mr. Cute Snowman, some Snowman tags and a wonderfully stitched and finished Christmas Box!! The pattern is from Lizzy Kate called "Fa La la la." Perfect for Christmas!! But, that was not all, I opened up the stitched box and found....
.. that she had lined it with some cute Christmas fabric and had also included and lovely floss minder and measuring tape! It is a wonderful exchange and I do thank you so very much Michelle!!!!
Now I have two more exchanges to finish up and send out. Also on the Christmas countdown Agenda.... we need get our Christmas cards finished up and out....... and I still need to get some little presents "from the kitchen" finished up and mailed out.... I will have a busy next few evenings and this weekend I'll be busy,busy,busy!!!!!
There you go sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by, do come again!!
