Busy Week

I have had quite a busy week this week I managed to finish my ornament for the Christmas challenge I am doing the 12 days of Christmas by Just Nan I am pleased with the finish I also stitched on the back "A Partridge in a Pear Tree"

I also received my HOE Lizzie Kate Exchange from Jen Regan, this is our third exchange now, Jen has come up 
with a beautiful finish it is needle work box, it has been lined inside and she added some lovely extras which was very generous I have never had the chocolate mints before as I have never seen then in the UK.
I also signed up this week to the challenge of a basket of biscornu and I even managed to make one and post it for January. It was a freebie design.
