Crazy Exchanges

Wow, Simone has already received the return gift that I sent to her for the Crazy Exchange! I finished off one of the Christmas ornaments I had stitched earlier in the year, as Simone noted that she likes Christmas ornaments in traditional red, white and green... and also sent her some holiday fibers too. After all, the season is quickly approaching!!
Merry Christmas

And, today I received this sweet little frog Altoid tin as an exchange gift from Cynthia! Aw, thanks Cynthia :-)

This week's update of And A Forest Grew now brings me to the very last page! Very exciting!!!

Ava's lip is a bit less swollen today :-)

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, started Fair & Square for An, and And A Forest Grew

Your 'traditional' Christmas exchange to Simone is lovely. There's really a lot to be said for the beauty of the traditional holiday colors. :)

Wow! Last page of "Forest..." That's just wonderful, Carol. You've got to be happy about that! Did you hear that the Japanese have just created a frog with transparent skin so the kids in bio. don't have to kill frogs to study the nervous system anymore!? Now you can enjoy your cute little frog tin with no subconscious memories to hinder you!! :)
Hugs,
Deb
