I received two exchanges today

What a fantastic mail day for me. Two exchange packages were waiting for me in my mailbox. The first package was the HoE Just Nan exchange from Margaret. I've received exchanges from her and let me tell you. She has the most ingenious way of putting everything into a small space. Margaret says everything is homemade in this exchange. I love a biscornu, and this one is fantastic. Aren't those little spools the cutest? A local woodturner makes them. The beads are from NZ also. The thread is hand-dyed by a local also. She also included some fabric. Thank you so much Margaret.

The second exchange was from Kerstin. She made a tote bag for the FFT Blackbird Designs exchange. I love the colors in this design, purple and green. She also included two German cross stitch kits, a candy bar, some thread and a heart shaped photo mat. I may just have to take this tote with me on my bus trip. Thank you so much Kerstin. I love it. It just so happens that I stitched for Kerstin during this exchange also.

Hope everyone has a wonderful evening.

This is a very beautiful exchange and it's wonderful how Margaret sent you great items local to her area.

I love the tote bag, very useful for carrying your stitching projects in a stylish way.
