Rabbit's Big Day Exchanges

I am off to go finish up a gift tonight, and maybe start some other secret stitching... so much to do! But I have some things to show before I go disappear into that secret world :-)

I received a lovely Rabbit's Big Day Exchange today from Marika!
Marika stitched a needlebook and matching fob (so wee!) that are just beautiful! I think they are by Homespun Elegance. And she sent me so many goodies too! She sent me a pretty Finnish Christmas towel, some linen and linen banding, pretty red floss, beautiful charts by Isabelle Vautier and Periphaeria Designs, a sweet note pad by Muriel Brunet, a cute book of needles with a wee chart.... and even matches from Finland! Aw, thanks! I will cherish this forever!

And... today Andrea also received the Rabbit's Big Day Exchange that I sent to her. Perfect timing!

Petits Lapins (Little Rabbits)

Tournicoton

36 ct Light Sand Edinburgh Linen

Converted from Gloriana Silks to Crescent Colours Floss


Above is a photo of the entire exchange. I did nick this photo from Andrea's blog. I hope she doesn't mind. The photo I had taken was a bit dark. I am so glad that Andrea likes her gifts :-)

Mike wants you all to know that he has received some requests to start carrying certain items in his online store - he is more than welcome to do that for you. Please let me know if there is anything you would like him to carry. Suzanne asked for Q-Snaps. Mike will happily stock all but the 17" ones. He learned via ebay that shipping those was a nightmare. There is no reasonable way to ship an item that large :-(

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, started a gift **Mailed out two gifts today

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the piece you stitched - what a gorgeous piece! Both exchanges are beautiful! I ordered some 17" q-snaps from Jenna and it did require a LONG mailer.
