Glad to know that Alison has received my package. I stitched these 2 ornaments using Vikki Clayton floss on a 30 ct sheeps straw linen from R&R Reproduction. The floss on the left is "moon called sea" and the right is "bane berry bright". Love the two varigated colours and texture of the silk floss. I also trimmed it with shiny coloured beads and golden ribbon. The designs are actually taken from a scissor fob given to me by Hazel last year in the SBEBB Redwork Exchange.
The next coming Frosty Friend Exchange will be my last exchange with SBEBB as it will be closed next year. A big thanks to Becky for rekindle my love for cross-stitching and making new friends along the way.
And thanks to Carol's invitation, I am now a new member of HookedOnExchangeToo (HoE)!! Hurray...! It will be another exciting year.

The stitched design is an old cartouche freebie chart from Workbasket. Goldie personalize the box with my initial and embellished it with red wavy velvet ribbons. The interior is red and padded at the base. The finishing is so superb. I love it. Goldie also includes extra goodies and they are reds!
See the box from another angle. I am glad it is not lost during the 27 days transit. :)

The sides are embellished with bright green beads. On closer look, one can see the 3d effect on the bees' eyes and the froggies' legs. Very charming indeed. :-)
Suzanne also includes extra goodies along with it. DMC floss which I use very often, a magnet map of Canada, a greeting card and a memo notebook that comes with a pen... which I currently in need of.
And take a look at the back. A big floral centre piece and the stitches are so well done.

How time can change one's interest... I recall 2 years back, I don't seem to have a thing for biscornu at all. I did however make one mini-biscornu at that time.... just for curiousity sake. But now (strangely), I feel in love with it after looking at all the beautiful designs others have come out with. After going through my stash, I already have a beautiful design in mind for my secret recipient... even though I have yet know who you are :-)
Have a nice stitching day to all.

I am currently working on 2 projects - Feed My Soul Stitches by The Cat’s Whiskers and My Treasures Workstation by JAT. I will show the finished work of my first project once I have completed the finishing. Meanwhile I have finished stitching the first part of the JAT workstation. I retained the border of the original chart and replaced the center portion with a design of my own. I took some bits and pieces of design from stitch books and magazine and then match them to my likes. I also get to choose my own floss colour too. By the way, it’s a one-over-one stitch. Really love this... my very own.

It is a cute snowmen design from Heart in Hand titled 'Winter Fobs'. She stitched it on 32 ct linen using Weeks Dye Works and DMC floss.
The finishing of her work is superb and the stuffing is just right for this cute needleroll.
She also includes a handmade tissue holder (see the happy snowman print...) and extra goodies for me. Marie has provides a link at her blog for the tissue holder instructions. Visit her blog if you are interested.
