Here is a pic of the items I sent to my swap partner Marianne in France. Marianne's blog is all in French so I had the bonus of learning how to use Google translator!
I made and received some other handmade Christmas presents also despite not one but two of my sewing machines breaking down during early in December! Here is a picture of a journal cover, mitten ornament and yo yo keychain I made. I'll save the other pictures for another day.
It's funny, I hadn't done any hand stitching since before Thanksgiving, but almost immediately after the company left on Christmas and DH and I sat down to watch some TV, I felt like taking out my Noah's Ark BOM stitchery - which I did! Much as I love Christmas, this is one of those years when I am SO GLAD its over! Does anyone else feel like that?
Have a pieceful day!
