The cat and mouse are so sweet .

Hi ladies,our first exchange is nerly ate end.
Only was was lost by post office but a second one was remailed and I hope it will arrive soon to her new owner.
I think now it is late to organize a new one,also because it is nearly christmas time and we are all a bit busy at making presents.
What do you think about making a new one the next year?
perhaps we can start to decide what to do on january or ending january.
Let me know and still sorry for my poor english

01 December 2011


Hi Miche'le,

I forgot to post to say ornie number 2 is now in the post and winging it's way to you.  Hopefully it will arrive before Christmas but probably not!  I'm really sorry the other one didn't arrive.  I was wondering whether you could contact the customs office where you are to see if they have it for some reason.  I doubt it, but you never know.!

hi ladies

good morning everyones
still 2 ornaments to reach their new homes

is it right?
any news for the moment?

16 November 2011


I just wanted to let you know that I am in the middle of stitching you another ornie and get it in the post as soon as I can.  Would you email me your address again please, just so I can check I have it right.  Or Amanda, perhaps you could resend the info if you still have it please? My email is sharonjstevens @ msn dot com

thanks, Sharon x

13 November 2011


hi ladies,
is there any other news?
Vivian?Do you think I have to start to cross stitching a new ornament?

09 November 2011


My friends take the package for me at the post office.
Post man wrote the wrong name,the wrong date...on the advice
and then I discovery it was stopped by the customs!!!!!

In the next exchange perhaps it is better written on the envelope it is a gift with no value.Mine was stopped nearly 2 weeks at customs

I will put a photo as soon as possible
It is fantastic

08 November 2011

perhaps it is arrived,fingers cross

Coming back from my job I found an advice in the post box....I hope it will be the ornament.
Tomorrow evening I will try to go to post office to take it
If it will be closed when I arrive at home I will go on thusday morning

fingers cross for me

and how about you ladies?
any news till now?

Just Too Long

I think it has taken just too long now for my ornament to reach its destination, maybe it's got lost, maybe it's been 'acquired'.  Either way I think I might start a new one this afternoon and just hope that while I'm sewing the other one will turn up somewhere.

06 November 2011

Hello Ladies....

Just a note to let you all know I am still around. It was a very LONG summer again for me and sure not going to complain about the weather we had here in northern Mn that's for sure! Seems every time I was cruising along good some family thing popped up tho and kept me from things I really wanted to do. (I think we can all relate?)
I see a few are still doing the exchanges and I missed the Christmas Ornie one...poor me! Such FUN to get a package "just for you" in the mail isn't it?

I do hope to become more actively involved again...hopefully in the next exchange that will be coming up!
Hope everyone will have a great holiday season now that winter is on the way.
Take care....Lynn S. in MN.

Getting Anxious

It's a week on and still no sign of the parcel I sent - come on Mr Postman hurry up p-l-e-a-s-e!!!

24 October 2011


Miche'le don't be worry about your ornament,it is really a long way from your country to mine...sometimes it takes also 4 weeks so we can have a little patient

Mine is not arrived to my partner too
but it has a long way to do too

and you haven't got yours too Miche'le

I think we can wait at least 1 week again before being worried

Worried Thoughts

I'm starting to worry here.  It's such a long while ago that I posted my ornament exchange and there has been no mention of it.  I wonder what is going on with our mail delivery as I haven't received a parcel either.  Please hurry up Mr Postman.

17 October 2011


I'm sooooo very happy that you like your ornament and that it got there ok!

Hugs,  Melissa

Melissa - I've received mine!!!!!!!

....and it's absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!   It is lovely.  I seriously can't believe you haven't corded before, your cording is so neat that I would have thought it was shop bought.

Can't wait to get my tree up now so I can hang it.   Thanks again!

14 October 2011

Getting Worried

I thought mine would have arrived by now so I am getting a little worried that it doesn't appear to have done so. Hope it's not lost somewhere on the way!

11 October 2011

Hi stitchers!

12 days are passed trough and I think our ornaments are still travelling across seas and oceans!

bye and have a nice day

04 October 2011

Ornament Received!

Late yesterday I recieved my GORGEOUS Hardanger ornament from Laurie.  Just take a look! My picture doesn't do it justice!

I've never had anything made in the hardanger style before and it's just LOVELY!  I've always wanted to learn to do Hardanger and this just cements the deal!    Thank you Laurie for this beautiful ornament!  I will treasure it always!

03 October 2011

A little something on it's way, way across the world

Just a little tease of an image to share with you as my decoration finds its way to the other side of the world.  It actually went last wee but the computer has had a few gremlins in it and wasn't working the best so I couldn't share this with you.
I hope my partner likes it.
hugs - Miche'le

01 October 2011

all mailed?

Well I think all the ornaments are travelling to their new house.
Hope they will arrive in time to be used...
Miche'le I just need to know the date of mailing of yours

and now just looking at mailing box for it

30 September 2011

28 September 2011

really curious to have a look of it
I will finish mine today and if the post office is still open I will mailed it

27 September 2011

I've sent

Just to let you know that my exchange is now winging its way to another part of the world.  Once I upload the camera, I will post a teasy photo for you!

I have realised that I haven't put the card in so when "someone" gets a packet with no ID in it, it's from me!!!

I really hope my partner likes it!

21 September 2011

I put sent and received but it still need the date.
so do not be worry

20 September 2011

count down

everything fine over there?
It is nearly time to mail our ornaments and perhaps put a photo for the most curious of us.

07 September 2011

just a word

Hi everyone!
everything fine with your cross stitching job?
mine is going on and I really like it
I do not know yet how to finish it but I have still some ideas.
Don't forget to ask me about any questions or problems if you have any

31 August 2011

happy starting stitching

Hi everyone
are you still cross stitching?
Have you already put your first cross?
I have done and hope it will be ok for my partner

How about put a photo of the ornament before sending it?
we can put it but not the name
I think it is a good way to be sure it was done and it will be mailed

and then it is also the best way to satisfay a curious person like me...
let me know about it
have a nice day

30 August 2011

I mailed you the name and the address.Please let me know if you all received it.
The latest day to mail out your ornament is september 30th.

I am still very much interested in staying involved with this group. When the poll was up, I was able to place my vote (which was for a Christmas Orny).

time is ending

Well,it is nearly time to have a look at the poll and decide what to do.
Till now I have only a few names telling me they would like to partecipate.
I'd like to do a list of name just to know if we are really 15 or not.
And I'd like to know also if you prefer going on here or create a new blog.

Waiting for last news

have a nice day

28 July 2011

Mail Art?

I think what Amanda is meaning is for us to each stitch a post card, stitching the address and the stamp too, rather like mail art, and send it along with a postcard from where you live. Is this correct, Amanda?

I put a little poll just to know what you would like to do
If you prefer embroidering something else tell me here

25 July 2011
