HoE Freebie Design Exchange for Olga

Olga has received my HoE Freebie Design Exchange for her today. I was intrigued when I received her name for this exchange. I did not know Olga at all, and I really enjoyed becoming a regular reader of her blog, and was tickled that she and I love pretty much the same designers. That made choosing for her to be easy! Here is what I chose:

Martina's Roses Biscornu

Chatelaine

28 ct Black Jobelan, DMC Floss, Kreinik #4 Braid, Mill Hill Beads


And the rest of the goodies for her... I figured she would enjoy some fun items for finishing, and some girly stuff too :-)

I think I got a better photo of my latest ornament this afternoon - a little less overexposed than last night's attempt... and here are the details:

Homespun Christmas Ornament

Heart in Hand

R&R Reproductions 35 ct Sheeps Straw Linen, GAST and WDW Floss


Stitched on today: Stitched (and finished) Noel Ornament by Shepherd's Bush (photo tomorrow) **Mailed out a gift today

Carol,
Thank you very much for the great exchange. The biscornu looks more beautiful in person, I love it! I hope you continue visiting my blog just like a friend who has the same interests in our hobby.

Carol another very attractive piece. The thread/floss you sent Olga looks very pretty. I can't read the label. Could you please tell us who it is by and the name?
