Needlebook sent

My needlebook went in the post today but we are currently in the middle of lots of postal strikes so I don't know how long it will take to get to my partner. Fingers crossed not too long but it is going international.

Take care

Needlebook from Amanda

Yesterday brought my Needlebook Exchange from Amanda. She did a wonderful job on this book, I instantly fell in love with it! Here's the front:

And the back:

And the whole exchange:

Amanda also made the sweet pins and scissor fob, which are just lovely. Sadly, I don't have a proper pair of embroidery scissors to put the fob on, but now I totally have a reason to buy a pair!

Thank you Amanda for such a great exchange!

Needlebook from xangles

Look what the mailman brought me today - this absolutely gorgeous Needle Book from Pokua! Can you believe she says this is her first attempt? I hesitated to untie the ribbon - afraid I would not get it tied back as beautifully as she did - lol!
Thank-you! This stitching is exquisite and I love your color selections. I will lo-o-o-ve using this for many many years!

FLOSS TAG Exchange

Hello....It's me again!

Just wanted to post the floss tag I received from Melissa M. in one of our last exchanges. I wasn't sure if I should post it here or in the other group site but will do it here.
Melissa was late in getting her floss tag done and to me and I totally understood why. I HOPE you are doing MUCH better Melissa! Take care of yourself first! That's the most important thing! She sent on a large package of needlework goodies PLUS a nice container of cookies she said were a recipe of her grandmothers as well. They were very good I guess as they soon disappeared around here! Ha!

Well then because we thought Melissa was missing in action and didn't know for sure what was going on...I was also "angeled" by Nicole. She sent along a floss tag to me as well. I received her floss tag package a couple days after I received Mellissa's but Nicole felt she would send hers along to me for being so patient.

Again I'll say that things happen in life (I know more than anyone how true that is in these last few months) Nicole was more than generous too and sent a very cute little tag as well as other goodies. I'll remember the nice gift and am willing to angel for anyone who needs one.

THANK YOU to both Melissa and Nicole!I appreciate the time and effort put in by both of you!

Hi Everyone,
Just to let you know I received my needlebook from Mary Jo. She says the design is "Moon Light Serenade" from Papillon Creations. She also included the flosses used: Cyclamen from Weeks Dye Works and Lavender Potpourri from The Gentle Art.

THANK YOU so much Mary Jo. This little needlework book will come in handy and is my very FIRST one!

Safe places :(

My needlebook was supposed to have the finishing done on it this morning and be in the mail this afternoon. I finished the stitching a few weeks ago before we went away and put it away to have the finishing done when we got back. It's either in a very safe place or the gremlins have been here!!! So, I'm about to start another one. The good thing is that after working tonight and tomorrow night I have some time off so it will be in the mail on time.

My gorgeous needlebook arrived from Monique yesterday, and it has a matching humbug :D Monique stitched both in a lovely autumn colour which matches a lot of the trees around here just now. She also included some lovely autumn and Halloween "confetti". Thank you so much for everything, Monique.
