Autumn exchange received - Chris!!

I have received my autumn exchange. Thank you Chris, it is absolutely gorgeous and matches our lounge perfectly!! It actually arrived on Friday, but I was out and had to go and collect it. All weekend I was racking my brains as to what I could have ordered and forgotten about never even thinking it could be the exchange already! I ripped the envelope open and found a very prettily wrapped package. It really brightened my day! Your finishing is fantastic! There were also some lovely threads and some cute little teapot buttons. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am thrilled to bits with it all.

Autumn cross stitch...

I have posted my Autumn cross stitching so hope it arrives safely.

Just to keep everyone here posted, I am in the middle of moving from the west coast to the east coast of Canada and will be missing from these exchanges for a little while. As I am driving across with our trailer we will be a while. It makes me sad that I might miss some exchanges before xmas but alas "c'est la vie".
I look forward then to exchange with other stitchers. Thanks for your patience...vivian

The Heart of Home

I have just received my exchange present from Jane. She stitched me a beautiful kitchen sampler which I like very very much. I have to look for a place for it in our kitchen. She also included a book full of Welsh recipes and beautiful illustrations and a lovely card made by her son!

Thank you Jane, for both of you! It is a really beautiful exchange present.
