Biscornu Exchange for Pixie... and lovely RAK's

I recently signed up to do a biscornu exchange run by Laura, and Pixie has let me know today that she received it...
Heartfelt Biscornu

Periphaeria Designs

32 ct Black Belfast Linen, The Dye Shop Floss - Magenta & Purple People Eater


Here are all of the goodies I sent to her. I read in her blog that she likes fairies. I searched for a while, but could not find a fairy themed biscornu. I am glad that Pixie wrote that she likes my choices. It was fun to stitch for her :-)

I also recently signed up for a drawing in Mylene's blog for a Valentine's Day scissor fob... and today I received this adorable little biscornu fob! Both sides are beautiful, but I forgot to photograph the other side. How sweet, thank you Mylene! I love the bookmark too!

And... a total surprise! Red sent me this wonderful beaded scissor fob with a rubber scissor tip! I am so tired that I cannot locate her blog link right now - sorry Red (Sue)!! Oh, I just love it! You are the sweetest!!

I worked on Serenity again tonight, and I kept my promise to myself to work on the border for a while this time :-)

Stitched on today: Started Winter Exchange for Myrna, and Serenity **Mailed out CE Exchange and SBEBB Tea Time Exchange today

There are some gorgeous gifts and RAK's there. I am enjoying watching your progress on Serenity and deciding on whether or not to get it myself, I will keep on watching and I may 'eventually' talk myself into 'needing' it hehe!!! I love the bee house that you made for Becky, it suits her so well. I just put in an order to Karen, and spoke to her on the phone, she sounds so bubbly and up-beat, always a pleasure to deal with her.

Hey what wonderful gifts for you and from you! That border on Serenity is going to take some stitching - well done for carrying on with it (I'd be tempted to leave it until the end, and then probably it would become a UFO, ha ha!)

Beautiful stitching ... lovely gifts. Isn't that clever to add a knitting needle tip to a beaded scissor fob? Excellent way to protect scissors!!
