So.... for those that might not know Kaye (Kitten Stitching) organised a Christmas in July swap - I joined because I can't resist Christmas and who doesn't want to celebrate it twice a year! 😄 Kaye sent us a list of who was sending to whom and away we went to stitch and send....
I sent to Astrid (Dragon Stitches & Stuff) - but more on that later! I received from Shelley (An Arizona Stitcher)... and look what I received (it's gorgeous!)
So first up... it came wrapped in pretty Christmas fabric and tied up with string - love it!
and then after unwrapping the next round of wrapping, I found the most gorgeous stitched gift...
and isn't that ornie so cute as well.... Shelly, thank you so much - I love my kitty - he is just the sweetest thing and is going to be taking pride of place at Christmas time! And those caramels were yummy!!
So now that you have drooled over the gorgeous kitty I received in my swap... I will quickly show you what I sent to Astrid.
The snowman & penguin card was from Cross Stitch Crazy and the Christmas Bells are a Mary Engelbreit kit that I received in a giveaway pack many years ago (2013) from Anne (Doll's Musings)... my post of the giveaway win is here. Finally managed to stitch it for this exchange, and I hope that Astrid loves it... I also made a little scissor fob and added some little extras, some of which aren't in this picture... 😊
So that's it guys! Sorry it's been so long between posts... time is not my friend anymore!
Til next time, happy stitching
