In a scandinavian quilting group we have had a Christmas swap and yesterday we had a great opening of our packages.Sigrun in Ski sent me beautiful flowerful fabrics and wonderful coasters.
Hiroko,a blog friend and I we made a personal swap and I'v got a Christmas decoration made in a beautiful pattern and so fantasic done.The second beauty is a needle book with the theme birds.I love samplers and she has made a part of a sampler in a needle book.And she sent me a sweet pink fabric too.
A weekend with cross stitch was the beginning of the Christmas holidays.
First of all a bird made in aida and DMC.The pattern is a freebee from
I have seen one made in red aida with white DMC-a really wonderful one.I hope I can do one in red and white for the next year,
The scissor fob is made in thin linen fabric-I think 32ct and DMC.
I love it because it's so thin and delicate in the colour combinations.
Betty has some other lovely patterns,some are freebees,and I really enjoy her patterns even if i'm not so "primitive" as she can be.
