Christmas Gifts Sent and Received

Hello dear stitching friends!  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas - we spent a wonderful day with family!

Dear Edit and I have been exchanging Christmas gifts for the past few years and this years both of us received our gifts before Christmas!  Here is the package I sent to Edit:


Here are the stitching and Christmas related items, including an ornament, counting/marking pins, fabric, cute Christmas themed mini pegs, labels and a card:


Here is a closeup of the ornament that I stitched for Edit - this sweet Owl is a design by The Floss Box and is stitched on 28ct self-dyed fabric and finished as a hanging pillow ornament:


This lovely bear and the hanging heart ornament was a gift for Edit's little baby girl, Sara - I hope she will like it!


I was lucky enough to receive this wonderful gift from Edit this year!  Look at that gorgeous draw string bag - it is so lovely, I wish I could use it all year round!  And that piece of Santa and reindeer fabric - so cute!  Also included was a chart for JBW Christmas ornaments and those cute gingerbread magnets and a little reindeer ornament!  Thank you so much Edit - I love everything!


That's it for now!  Have a great weekend and a wonderful New Year's Eve and New Year!

Happy Stitching,
Michelle

Dear Michelle,

Thank you to leave a comment on my blog! :-) I saw your ornament and I fell in love with the little owl immediately, so I also stitched it. You can see my version here, if you interested in it: http://x-crossroads-x.blogspot.hu/2013/01/elkeszult-baglyocskaowl-is-finished.html
