All Kinds of Exchanges

I have all kinds of exchanges - all shapes and sizes - to share... too many to share really. I received three and learned that two I sent had arrived. Since I learned today that the SBEBB is closing down at the end of January, I am going to devote today's entry to the three that are SBEBB related... tomorrow I will share the ones I received from Meg's Christmas Ornament Swap and a Crazy Exchange...


I received this beauty from Gaby for the Harvest Time Exchange. So pretty - delicate and so nicely put together. I love the fabric so much... and the design is so pretty. This was a no goodies exchange. Thank you so much Gaby, I do love it!

Two SBEBB Exchanges I recently put together also were received... the first is the Reindeer Games Exchange that I sent to Edgar. It was hard to choose something to stitch for Edgar. I had something all kitted up, only to see, just before I started it, that he received the same item for the HoE Christmas Ornament Exchange.... so after dinner on Thanksgiving, I made him this...


Reindeer Ornament

JBW Designs

28 ct Antique Ivory Cashel Linen, GAST Floss


...And the rest of the goodies I sent to him...

Chris also received the Christmas Ornament Exchange that I sent to her...
The Red Noel Ornament

Les grilles de Maryse

The Gift of Stitching Magazine, November 2008

32 ct Antique White Belfast Linen, DMC Floss


...And the rest of the goodies for her...

I also owed Chris a PIF, so I put this together and it hitched a ride over to the UK with the ornament exchange:


Red Velvet Building Blocks "C" Floss Ring Tag

Blue Ribbon Designs

28 ct Vintage Country Mocha Cashel Linen, Crescent Colours Floss - Balsam Fir


OK... now I am tired from typing all of that...

Stitched on today: Started a gift **Mailed out a gift today

There's been some awesome stitching happening while I've been away - 41 unread posts to catch up on, and every one a treat! :D Hope the gallbladder is behaving itself - had mine out a couple of years ago now, and don't envy you one little bit! You've also given and received some beautiful exchanges as well :)
I'll be offline again until just before Christmas so if I don't get chance to comment again, I hope you and Mike have an awesome Christmas! :D
