A Share...

Good morning, dear friend!

I am so happy that our own, sweet Parsley over at Seasons of My Mind received her exchange gift from me...and the best part of all is that she loved it! I couldn't be more pleased as stitching a gift for such a dear friend is my one weakness...wink, wink.

So, without further adieu, my Christmas exchange gift for Parsley.

The front...


The back...




This is a really fun chart from Barbara Ana Designs, titled  "Happy How-a-days," which I stitched on 25ct "Oatmeal" Floba using the charted DMC/DMC variegated floss. in a 1x1. I trimmed it using Crescent Colors "Bean Sprout" hand dyed chenille trim.

And

I also stitched her a sweet little nothing...



Up close...



This is a wonderful Kelmscott Design "Miniature Monogram Hornbook-Margin Marker," also stitched on 25ct "Oatmeal" Floba using the same DMC floss, using a 1x1. I added a few red beads for the holly berries.

Fun, fun, fun!

I also added a few fun treaties to the box, and off it went, where it traveled for what seemed like forever until it finally arrived at Parsley's door...and she loved it...yay!

You can see my amazing gifts from Parsley, here...

Well, that's what's what, here at The Corner, and I thank you for stopping by for a visit. I send you off with a sweet hug and a warm smile, and hope that your day is filled with good friends and wonderful treats!

Hugs
