It arrived! =D

I am so very relieved! Today I hear from Carol S. that she finaly got the return gift I made her. A few months ago Carol sent me a absolutely lovely froggy fob, and then, it was my time to return her kindness. =) I made her this Xmas ornament. I used a Lizzie Kate design I like a lot and designed the shape of the ornie. I think next time I will add some red beads to the hanger so it will not look so simple.Carol isn't into too girly things, so it was a "hard" time to keep me from adding all the girly girl stuff I always like to add in my pieces. =P Making something for such a great stitcher and finisher took me a few nights of good sleep... But I am pleased with the final result and she says she likes the piece. =) I can't wait to see it hangging at her Xmas tree or at some door knob at her home. I am sure she has been a good girl all this year! =D

Edited: I realise that I never posted a pic of the beautiful Fob I got from Carol S. Oh boy... Shame on me! =( She allowed me to use a "stolen" pic from her blog, because her pics are waaaaaay much better than mine! =P Take a look and tell me: isn't it the most adorable thing ever seen?! =)


I also just heard from Pascale B., at the Netherlands, that she got her gift today too! Oh my! =) Tell me about perfect timing! Lol.


Pascale likes the primitive style, so I thought this Isabelle Vautier design would please her. I stitched some sections of "Amitié Croisée" (RV120) on a tea towel. I think the couple looks quite Dutch to me. =) The pic is a bit weird: the piece is not "burnt" like showed here. Dunno what I have done wrong... =(
