Winter Quaker Exchanges

Two blog entries in one week... maybe things are looking up for me again? I am sure trying, at least ;-)

I sent off and received for the HoE Winter Quaker Exchange this past week, and wanted to share them...


I received this really cute quaker snowman ornament from Ellen (oops, sorry - her blog is still empty!). I just love it, and cannot wait to put it on the tree this Christmas. So nicely stitched up and assembled too. She also sent some goodies - a beautiful skein of ThreadWorx floss, a magnetic needle case and a pad and pen for my purse... but I already stashed those away. Thank you so much Ellen, I love it all!

Also, Shay let me know that she received the HoE Winter Quaker Exchange that I put together for her too. Like Ellen, I also chose to make a Christmas ornament for this exchange.

Quaker Christmas Smalls Ornament
Milady's Needle
36 ct Flax Linen, Crescent Colours Floss (my own conversion to Bandana, Cupid, Sassy Brass, Balsam Fir and Milady's Teal)


...And my little goodies for her too... glad you like it Shay - it was a treat to stitch for you again ;-)

I had also sent a birthday gift to dear Anne at the very start of February, but it only just arrived in Melbourne a few days ago... but at least it arrived safely. Here is the stitched part of what I sent to her.. happy belated bday, Anne!


Garden Alphabet "A" Floss Ring Tag
Prairie Schooler
32 ct Antique Ivory Belfast Linen, DMC Floss


Stitched on this week: Started Christmas Ornament for Jill for Christmas Ornament Swap

Do you know who the designer is on that Quaker snowman? I'd love to stitch this one for a friend of mine.

And I for one absolutely ADORE my floss tag! :D Lovely ornies BTW too :D xx

Brigitte said...

Both Winter Quakers are so beautiful, this was a great exchange for both of you.
I love the little floss tag with the A from PS Garden Alphabet. These little letters are always good for small gifties.

Jean said...

Lovely stash you sent. I liked seeing the ornie against the stash - it gave me a size perspective. Everything looks great - perfect finishes - just flawless!

Mel said...

Great exchanges as always Carol.
I'm always so jealous of how you are able to finish your pieces so nicely.

I found the pattern for the Quaker snowman pattern this morning - go to this blog and do a search for snowman. That's how I found it.
