I just wanted to share some of my lovely Christmas presents from stitchy friends
From Barb, this beautiful glass tree, made by her husband
From Julie, this delicate crocheted angel (and some chocolates which didn't survive long enough to be photographed)
From Clare, a set of scented sachets (you'll have to take my word for the gorgeous scent) and a skein of hand dyed floss in a lovely rich autumnal gold mix
From the Needlework Haven Advent Exchange, a Northern Expressions chart from my wish list- Twisted Band Sampler - perfect for me because I am, after all, pretty twisted - together with a cut of evenweave and a card of Christmas ribbon. My Exchange partner turned out to be Becs. Thank you Becs, I've loved everything you've chosen for me in this exchange.
And from the VSCyberstitchers Christmas exchange, this pack of goodies from Susan, including an adorable stitched ornament with a teddy wearing a Union Flag onesie and bunny slippers, a magazine, chocolates, needles, silk threads, and much more.
Thank you to each and every one of you.
Coming up in part 2, the things I made for other people (mostly the girls) and couldn't show before Christmas...
