I have just done the Prairire Schooler Exchange on HOE I sent my exchange to Mylene in the Netherlands it is from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazines.

I received from a loverly finished Ornament from Edgar which was from booklet 177 January stitched with the recommended DMC threads.

I have also been busy stitching a present for my mother-in-laws birthday in August I did the Just Nan Owls of October which did take me a long time to stitch which she loves and has out on display.

I also did the stitchers choice exchange  exchange and received this from Rosa in Canada it is a lovely snowman embellished with buttons but she has not stated where the pattern has come from.

Next was the Summer Exchange from Lily in Malaysia, it is a fantastic pincushion finished in the shape of a tent, it is from the Brent Creek signature of summer series. I have also included a picture of the back, the shape reminds me of a big tent you would see at the circus.
