What could this be?

Something that needs a third post for the day - a record for me. See the cute little hanging on the ribbon?


It's my Winter exchange from Su! And what a beauty it is too. A gorgeous embellished bag. As usual photos don't do it justice. The beads are lovely and the snowflake buttons at the top have a little sparkle on them. And the stitching is so neat and lovely - it looks like 40ct fabric. So perfectly wintery! And a lovely design that's one of my favourite winter charts.


And I have some lovely fabrics too. A really pretty piece of Jubilee that's going to be put aside for a HAED (Water by Sara Butcher) and some lovely brushed cottons that are so soft.


Thank you so much Su! I really appreciate it all - a wonderful parcel!

  2. Oh Nicki you are lucky to have such a lovely piece of winter stitching. I love cross stitch houses. The beading on the bottom edge looks like icicles. Perfect.
