Another finish and a lovely exchange ! :))

Thanks for your comments on my last post !!

I have a cross stitch finish to share today which was meant for an exchange long due with my friend Mini from Miniz Diary . She received yesterday and now I am free to post about it :)

Blue tit cross stitch collection 2013

Cross stitch 'Blue bird' by Lesley Teare from the magazine Cross Stitch Collection April 2013 issue .


I framed it but unfortunately the glass frame didn't survive the long journey :(

We agreed for two handmade items but I forgot to take the pictures of the second handmade which is a crochet heart hanging . These are my goodies that I had sent .

Buttons, burlap ribbons, mini easel, sketched card from Goa and a set of cookie cutters

I received Mini's gifts a week ago . She made her first lovely Biscornu  for me and now it is mine first too :) And her knitting coasters are soft and sweet as well! Thank you Mini !!



She pampered me with lots of goodies which don't fit into one screen shot .....:)

linen and cotton fabric, mill hill kit, postcard, earrings
Needle minder and a scissor fob - both made by her

Lovely stationery and a crochet needle organizer which she got custom made
And yes, a spice mix also but I couldn't take pics as I already opened it

I enjoyed the exchange a lot and was happy to do it because we (read I ) had been missing deadlines with some or the other reasons :) Thank you Mini for the wonderful gifts !! Looking forward to see more exchanges in future .


Have a great week ahead!
Preeti
