So much to share-so little time!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Yes-I'm a little Irish, so I wore some green today!
Wow-I can't believe it's been over a month since my last
post. I am the worst blogger ever-I know! Well, between
a cold, then a sinus infection-I was pretty much miserable
for a month. Anyway, I'm back to normal now and I have
tons to share with you. First is the SBEBB Frosty Friends
exchange. I had Linda and this is what I stitched for her.

Peppermint Paul by Helga Mandl
found in the gift of stitching magazine-issue #34
Stitched on my own hand dyed 28 ct monaco
with dmc and dmc color variations threads & mill hill beads
Linda has a really cool close up of the beads on her blog

This was only my second, but final exchange on this board as it was
closing. I wish I had found this board a lot earlier. But I totally understand
and respect the reasons why it closed! I wanted it to be special so I
crocheted this doily for her. I couldn't get the darn thing to lay flat- that's
why it's sticking up in the bottom right corner!

here's the entire exchange. I had read on her blog that she wished
for altoid tins to use for finishing so I found some in my stash and
sent them along.

This is what I received from Judith for the Frosty Friends exchange.
What unbelievable detail. There are charms and a little bell. You must
click on the photo-check out that cute little carrot nose! Thanks so much
Judith-I love it! It's still hanging in my kitchen. She also sent me some
pretty "six strand sweets" floss, of which I did not have any-until now!

Take care everyone and thanks for your visits!
I haven't forgotten, I am working on something
special for my belated blogoversary drawing!
