Winter Exchange to Myrna!






Here is my winter exchange to Myrna of Still Living in Wonderland. It is called winter ice by Keslyn's and is done on 32 count ice blue linen in Midnight GAST. It is sparkly as it has Kreinik braid, Mill Hill seed beads and clear crystal beads as well. It is finished into a picture frame puffed out with batting underneath. I sent the easel stand with it to display it. Myrna says she loves it and I am very glad! You know how nervous one gets until the exchange gets there and the recipient likes it.

The second picture is of some of the goodies I sent. A slew of Crescent threads, 2 charts from Myrna's wish list, Kelmscott curious cat minder needle magnet, some Christmas socks and Altoids. Sorry about the glare from tin! I left some things out of the package which I still have to send. I was in such a hurry to get it out that I forgot a couple of things.

Also, a huge thank you to Staci of Snippets and Stash as I won her last giveaway of a Christmas ornament called believe by The Sampler Girl. It is adorable! It really made my day! Click here to see ornament ! Thanks again Staci!

Anyway, I am not sure I will be back here before New Years! So, I wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year in 2009!
