Exchanges Received!!!

Petit Pack de Noel by C en Roussillon
I redesigned the center square as it was almost the same as the upper left square. This went to Carmela in Spain. I have heard that she received it today.  It is on 28ct evenweave, offwhite and using DMC 326. Though rather boring at times only using one color, I am pleased with the outcome.

Hope by Katherine Martin Tripp 14ct Adia with DMC thread

14 ct Adia with DMC thread and this is from a book.
 These are two that I sent to Christina. I included a third but must have forgotten to take a picture. She likes primitive so the third was a sock and was made of flannel and embroidered with a primitive snowman.

Mystery Monday!!

  Laura J. Perin is having a Mystery Monday SAL. She is putting up a small piece of a small canvas work design each Monday.

 These are the colors I choose. Watercolors ??? #5 Pearl Cotton ???? and Kreinik #16 Braid 001. These all came from my stash. The reason for the ??? is these are left overs from a piece I stitched and I don't have the labels.

Not the greatest picture but it is cloudy here today. Sprinkled last night. Maybe later this afternoon again.
