An Autumnal Package Arrived

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends as you might remember I am part of a small exchange group, Friends Stitching Through the Seasons.  We are just wrapping up our Fall Exchanges and mine arrived yesterday.  The mail has been coming later and later and yesterday was no exception, it arrived after I left... so I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me that just made my Friday Morning!!  I usually have my camera with me and today is no exception..... so I have snaperoos.....


Karen is my year long partner and she stitched and finished a wonderful decorative cube!!  The chart is called "Falling Leavers" and is by Threadwork Primitives.  It is finished up just lovely with gold and orange organza ribbon.  Here's a close up......


The goodies included with in the package include a lovely piece of cream linen, a gorgeous hank of Limited Edition of Belle Soie silk, in the most rich shades of brown!!  There are some of my favorite petite gold 28 sized JJ needles, a magnet note pads, a cute pumpkin photo holder, a great piece of cast iron, some fun Fall Bells and a package of Whoopee Pie mix!!  An overall super Fall Package!!!!  Thank you so much Karen!  

What a wonderful way to wrap up the week!!!

Berit said...

What an awesome exchange set! Do you know if she used the recommended fibers on this piece?

I bought a copy of the chart last year, and have yet to see anyone stitch it other than the designer. So, you know, wondering how it "really looks in the wild", so to speak. :D
