Temari From Elaine

I love this temari Elaine made for me from our facebook group. Its colors are wonderful and the stitching is fantastic. It inspires me to try more.

Temari for Elaine

Carol decided to investigate when Andreas was taking photos, but I do love how this one turned out.

Exchange From France

Friendly Stitchers had a Christmas exchange and I was able to participate for once! So I received this from Mary in France - an ornament, some trim, some thread, and a nice note. All of it lovely. The ornament will go on my tree next year. Thank you, Mary!

Off To France

I sent this off to France for my exchange last week, along with some Christmas chocolate. It cost more than $40 to ship! Weighs under a pound. How expensive!

Redditgifts DIY Gift

I did the redditgifts DIY exchange, and was pretty disappointed with this book that did not meet minimum expenditure and was just blah.

Reddit Gifts Stationery Exchange

I received these pens in a redditgifts exchange. Andreas put the cartridge in the fountain pen for me, but I've been too busy lately to try anything out. Frustrating! Not going to get better over the summer.

Reddit Gift

For the last few years, I've participated in the Reddit Christmas Gift Exchange. This year, I received this book from a total stranger. It's a good book AND one I don't have in my library.

Thank You Sally

I finally participated in an exchange this summer.  I sent something to DJ, and Sally sent this lovely needle roll to me!

Tea From Redditgifts

I signed up for the Redditgifts Tea and Coffee exchange and received these wonderful things in the mail.  It's been handy, as we're moving.  I'll have a real teapot the first day I get in to Pristina!

Mary sent this to me all the way from France!  Isn't it pretty?

Elsie's Temari

Elsie sent me this fantabulous C10 wrapped temari covered in stars and sparkles.  People see it and they have to pick it up.  It even rattles!  Thank you so much for the temari, Elsie!

When I got home from the US, this cute little snowman from Judith in Germany was waiting for me.  He's adorable.  Thank you, Judith!

Christmas In July

I received these two beautiful little Christmas ornaments in exchange.  Jessica made them and she did a great job!  Now I need to wait until November to hang them around my central arch.  Thank you Jessica!

Thank You Greta

I received a package upon my return from France.  It was from Greta and in exchange for the firecracker Independence Day ornament I sent her.  The ornament is about an inch across.  The threads are beautiful.  Thank you kindly, Greta.

For The Fourth

 I don't know why this has decided to load sideways.  It was upright in the original photo.  Anyway, I participated in a Friendly Stitchers Independence exchange, and this is the ornament I made for my partner Greta.  I hope she likes it.

Spring-y Ornament

 It's a Christmas ornament, really!  It even has reindeer and trees.  It's just done in tropical colors....

Can you guess what this is?  It's for an exchange that needs to go out by the end of the month!

Journey Of The Lost Temari

 This lovely temari was in the mail for over eighteen months.  Much of that time was spent in a warehouse at the Moscow airport.  Can we say absolute mess up on the part of Turkish Air?  You can see the label that was added to the box it came in - the State Department added it when it put the package in diplomatic pouch.  

The temari itself is from Linda W in Cyprus and is absolutely gorgeous.  It came through completely unharmed.  Thank you, Linda!  I'm sorry it got so lost in the mail!
