Here I am back again....
I have again taken part in one of the MS Lovers Blog exchange - this time the theme was a Winter Exchange/Christmas ornament. So with Christmas and the posting date just around the corner I went to my trusty old "Best of Margaret Sherry" bookazine. This book is full of some great designs so I knew that I would find the perfect one.
It took me a little while to pick the design that I wanted to stitch as I couldn't decide whether to do one of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" or something else. In the end it was the cute little hedgehogs that swayed me... and I decided to stitch part of the "Trimming the Tree" design. The part of the design that I decided to stitch was one of the hedgehogs carrying the Christmas lights. They are all so cute...one day I will stitch the whole design.

My ornament was mailed off to Portugal with plenty of time to spare.... for a change! Rita was my exchange partner. Before stitching my ornament and putting together the rest of the package I spent a bit of time looking over her blog to see what her other interests were besides stitching Margaret Sherry designs. Rita had mentioned on her blog that she has started doing some scrapbooking so I thought I would put together a package of bits and pieces for Rita to use in her scrapbooking.

Rita received the package safe and sound a couple of weeks after I mailed it to Portugal. I am really pleased that it arrived safe and sound and that Rita adored it!
I have now received my exchange package from Italy, so stay tuned and I will show you very soon the most amazing package that came in the mail on Friday.
Til then, happy stitching
