The photo is terribly blurry as I took it with the flash off (for unknown reasons), and did not realize the photo was blurry until after the package was all sealed up... but here are the rest of the goodies I sent her. There is a much better photo (several of them, actually) in Janaina's blog. I am so happy you like my choices, Janaina! Christmas in Brazil is so tropical, and I thought an ornament with the wintry touch of New England on it would be unique on your tree... sadly, it will have to wait until Christmas 2008 to be used. Thanks for being so patient, Janaina! Now, if only the birthday package I sent to Tannia on the day after Thanksgiving (November 20 something) would arrive in Australia... that would be a good thing!
I got up early this morning and finished up Lauren's Neighborhood Round Robin. I used elements from Christmas Day by The Prairie Schooler. Lauren's theme is Winter, or as I call it, Lauren's Winter Wonderland.
Here is how her entire round robin is looking now. I love it. I mailed this off to Annemarie this afternoon - three days late, sorry!!! Now, after having finished 2007 with stitching the Frosty Friends exchange, and starting off 2008 with more wintry stitching - Winter House exchange, Winter Quaker exchange, Lauren's Winter Wonderland... I am really looking forward to not stitching tons of snow for a while now...
So... I started the SBEBB Valentine's Day Exchange project today - so different and colorful! I am enjoying it so much that I am now going to disappear and continue to work on it! I hope everyone has a wonderful evening!
Oh! I almost forgot! Scissor fobs are beginning to arrive at their new homes in the very first exchange run over on Hooked On Exchanging, and they are real beauties! I am so proud of the stitchers in this exchange! If you want to join up, just let me know. There will be a couple of new exchanges opening soon, and many more will be run in the future :-)
