Crazy Exchange from Edda :-)

The postman delivered another surprise for me today. Edda chose to send to me in the Crazy Exchange. And she stitched the sweetest little mattress pincushion using her own color scheme. Her over-one stitching is just perfect, and her colors are lovely. Then... she also included some skeins of hand dyed fibers, including one similar to Caron Wildflowers that is dyed in Scotland. And pretty striped fabric too. Thank you, Edda! I just love it all. And, I already have a couple of ideas spinning in my head for my return exchange for you.


I chose to keep working on A Quaker Christmas tonight... after I finished a new Crazy Exchange, that is :-)

Stitched on today: Finished new Crazy Exchange project, and A Quaker Christmas
