Animal Antics

The last parcel of the Animal antics Exchange has finally made it to its' destination , so I can show what I sent and received .
 My partner asked for birds,sheep or .... something else , can't remember now ,lol , but not cute .

  I went for the bird option , and as she pretty much asked for a Christmas package , I chose to stitch this from the JCS mag
I changed up some of the colours to suit the stronger colour palette asked for , and used beads from my stash . It was made into a pillow finish .
I struggled to find Christmas things in September , so added other gifts that I thought nice , this is the pillow with the other goodies I sent .
And this is what I received from my partner , I asked for owls , cats or chickens.
 A lovely owl chart ,which sadly got a bit crumpled in the post , but is still usable, stuffed owl, socks, peeps and a q-snap cover . All I need now are some q-snaps , lol  . And of course ,the stitched item , a cat biscornu .
 Thanks again to my partner , Greta .
 I am almost ready to post out my Autumn exchange , but got my son's birthday tomorrow so that has been keeping me busy , along with the stomach bug we all got last week .. Not nice !
 So , be back soon.
 Thanks for dropping by ,
