I participated in a "My Favorite Things" cross stitch exchange over at Stitched With Love Exchanges. It was a completely secret swap. We didn't get to find out who had us until everyone in the swap received their packages. Yesterday was the reveal day. Marjorie from Whittier, CA had me. This is what she sent me . . .
Isn't it all awesome?!!! I'm so happy with everything! Did you notice one of the ribbons have little teacups on it? I love teacups! :) It's all so perfect! Thank you Marjorie for a wonderful package! Here's a close-up of the lovely teapot she stitched for me . . .
I love teapots! She did a fabulous job! Don't you think?!!! :)
My partner for this swap was Loretta from Canada. Her favorite colors were purple and red. Her favorite things included lots of Christmas so that's the theme I went with. Here's what I sent her . . .
I was originally going to make a couple of ornaments for her but then I saw this Santa pattern and just had to stitch it for her. It was a lot of work but totally worth it. I love the way it turned out! :) Here's a close-up of the pillow . . .
And a closer view of the stitching . . .
Until next time . . .
