HoE Woodland Exchange for Maria, and a gift for a friend

I read today in the HoE II blog that Maria has received the HoE Woodland Exchange that I sent to her. I had a lot of fun making this - it is a tiny mattress pincushion, using a portion of LHN's Woodland Sampling chart...

... And the rest of the goodies I chose to send to her - I hope she likes it!

I also got an email this morning that my old friend Brenda, who does not blog, has received a little gift that I sent to her too...
