My SSCS gift from Lea




Christmas morning was made even more exciting when I opened my SSCS gift from Lea.  Lea stitched this beautiful cross stitch cushion for me, isn't it adorable, those hares driving the reindeer sleigh are the cutest...... and the pom-pom trim is fantastic!  I was so thrilled with my gorgeous gift, so thankyou Lea for the cushion and my two lovely Christmas ornaments, and a huge thanks to Chookyblue for organising this brilliant swap again.  This is my third year in Chooky's swap, and I hope she's planning on doing it all again in 2013, I wouldn't miss this one for anything!!

I will share in the next couple of days what I sent to Cheryl in the US, I have had a lovely email from Cheryl saying how much she liked what I made her....... it's always a relief to hear that!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, we certainly did...................... until next time, happy stitching......Nicky x

A beautiful gift from your friend Lea - she is such a clever lady.

I could spend hours looking through your posts, seeing all the interesting projects you have on the go or have completed.
you must be a very organised person!

I loved your post about the Catlins and seeing the wee penguins - great photos.
I've seen ordinary penguins at sea sailing up the coast but not the yellow eyed penguin!

Christmas Blessings to you and your family.

Joyeux Noël

It it's a lovely cushion and the pompom trim finishes it off beautifully. Maybe it won't get put away with all the decorations just yet.
