Winter Exchange for Carol



Carol let me know that she received her winter exchange today. I used a little kit by Just Another Button Co. called bring it on. I call it winter with an attitude and since Carol has had such a rough one I thought this was appropriate. Sometimes you just have to have an attitude to make it through all the snow some of you all get. I can't even imagine snow from a balmy 70 plus degrees here today Florida! I finished it into a flat fold. I sent her a needleroll chart by Periphaeria Designs and the cutest thread holder by Monique . They are so neat and you can find them at her Etsy Shop . Go on over and grab you a few! I also sent some stitcher's lotion, chocolate and silk threads. I am glad you liked everything Carol! Coming soon a happy dance on African Woman! Hope everyone's St. Patrick's Day treated you well!

I am a bit of St. Patty's scrooge, LOL. I don't wear green and pretty much ignore the other hoopla which is a bit funny since my mother was born in Ireland.It was still a good day :-).

Very cute and great work on the flat fold! I've made three now (thanks to Vonna) and I think it's a great way to finish XS pieces.
