I took part in a Christmas Ornament Exchange with HOE.
This is what I sent to Carol in the USA a Lizzie Kate pattern called Noël.
I received this beautiful ornament in the post from Gabriele in Australia, it is from Country Cottage Needleworks stitched in recommended threads,
At the end of June when I went away with my mother for a stitching weekend I made myself a project bag using a piece of stitching I had done from Little House Needlework.
I also made myself a matching thread catcher I decided to make my Mother a project bag as well this matched a little bag I had previously made her.
I made quite a few of my thread catchers and gave them away to the ladies we sat with,
One of the ladies sent me a surprise in the post as a thank-you for the thread catcher this is what I received.
