Autumn exchange

I can now show the autumn exchange parcels I sent and received . The exchange was organised by Lainey at Stitched With Love Exchanges , and I really enjoyed it.

 I loved the piece I stitched and am looking forward to stitching it again for myself.

 The design is called Acorns and Owls and is a freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs. I used the recommended DMC threads apart from the alphabet which was stitched using a variegated thread from 21st Century Yarns. I made a cube type finish , my first and though it is a little wonky ,it came out ok .

 Luckily , Fiona who received it liked it too .
This is the package as a whole with the other goodies I sent.
And this is the gorgeous package I received from Lynda. Such lovely gifts , everything was so right for me .
Chart, ribbons, buttons,bookmark,thread and a very glittery pumpkin that my kids loved.


Scissors , fabric and a lovely leafy tea towel that went straight into use, so pretty .
Gorgeous red leaf. Mine !
And the lovely long legged Autumn bird pin keep.

I am a very lucky girl .
 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

Ooops, I "think" I mentioned Happy Thanksgiving in my comment I just left. If I did, ignore. If I didn't, then ignore this. : )
