Here It Is!


Last fall I participated in an ornament exchange run by Bronny at http://bronnysbits.blogspot.com/. I posted earlier about the lovely ornament and gifts I received from my partner but I wasn't sure that my ornament had made its way to Australia. You see, the first time I sent it, it went all the way to Australia and they sent it back due to the address not being found. Now the only thing I could find that was wrong with the address was I didn't have it all in block letters. So I put it in another envelope, redid the address and sent it off in the hopes that this time it would make it. Well, after traveling halfway around the world TWICE, Karen has her ornament. So now I figure I can show it here on my blog. It's stitched on a Token & Trifle card from Kreinik with overdyed wool from Weeks Dye Works and Mill Hill beads and treasures. The larger beads are ones I picked out of a box at my local bead store. I love working on the cards. The stitches are small but it really was a lot of fun stitching it.

It must have been so hard to part with such a pretty ornament, but you must be so relieved it finally got to its destination.
