What a great mail day today - I received two really lovely Christmas ornaments from two dear friends! Today was really quite cold here, as it barely was above freezing all day, so opening packages with Christmas ornaments by the fireplace was rather fun this afternoon!
First of all, I received this HoE Christmas Ornament Exchange from Carla - she stitched me this adorable Fa La La ornament by Plum Street Needleart. I just love this design, and she even stitched it on 40 ct - so delicate and sweet, and of course, perfectly finished. I love the beaded edge. She also sent me a Shepherd's Bush kit off of my wishlist (wow!), some lovely Moda holiday fabrics, two skeins of ThreadWorx floss... and a box of yummy truffles from Peru! What an awesome exchange, Carla - thank you so much!
And a huge surprise - dear, sweet Erin sent me this really gorgeous banner style ornament as, she says, a thank you for having included her in the Hello Neighbor RR that is just winding down. Oh, Erin - no need for such a thank you - it was a sheer pleasure to have you in our group (and your woodsy theme was so awesome!)... but I truly love this ornament and it will be a real treat on our Christmas tree. Thank you so, so much.
I will treasure both of these ornaments forever. How lucky am I??
