Last week of the exchange

you need to be thinking about posting your items soon for them to arrive on time...

any problems let me know.

Thank you Chris!

I have just opened the envelope that arrived today to find the most wonderful exchange present inside. Well, this is my first ever exchange received, but I am sure it is the most beautiful one. Chris sent me a gorgeous needlecase with a La-d-da design. Not only the stitching is beautiful but the fabric she used for the back and inner parts. She toughtfully included needles as well. For sure it will always be with me!

Also, she sent me a Lizzie Kate design called Chocolate Lovers. Lizzie Kate is one of my favourites but this is my first ever design from them!

And if it would not be enough, she sent me some threads of beautiful colours.

Thank you Chris, you made me very very happy!

Thank you Edit

I was a bit curious when my husband said there was a package from Spain, I couldn't think who,what or where...
I was just so pleased to open it and find some wonderful gifts from Edit.
A most beautiful cushion with lovely design, and a little bag which has my initials on, that had some Lollies in for my children and a fab Hungary fridge magnet( I collect these :0D ) and a lovely scissor fob, but that's not all some Spanish sweets which are yummy!! lol
I love how you did the little flower label ,a great added touch.
Thank you Edit, they are beautifully stitched and finished, For a first exchange it is just all wonderful. Thank you so much you have made my day!

Alphabet exchange sent

This morning I have sent my Alphabet exchange. Hope it will arrive soon. Until then, keep watching your mailbox :)

Alphabet exchange

Hello from Australia

Hello everyone, my name is Lisa and I am lucky enough to join you all on this exchange blog.
I live in Perth, Western Australia with my husband and 5 year old son. My family emigrated here when I was 9 from the UK, I was born in Manchester.
I have been stitching for around 19 years when I was taught by a high school friend of mine, and as an adult I carried it on, learning some quilting and long stitch along the way, however my true love is cross stitch. I love exchanges since discovering the blog world out there. If you wish to visit my blog , please do, I love having new people coming to visit and leaving comments.
I look forward to many happy exchanges with your group, and thanks for having me.
Happy Stitching
