Counting down...

It's almost Christmas. So far I've just managed to paint the kitchen and the hallway beside it. Will have to set the decors, specially the tree, as soon as possible, otherwise won't be able to enjoy it long enough.

I have a few cross stitch ornies still as a wip. But I can show you now a small one that went all the way to France. EMS' Arlette is the new owner.


The hanger is floral wire twisted, so simple and yet so nice. The picture doesn't show well, but the things hanging are small bells, those were a gift from Emma in England. They are glued between the backing (felt) and the aida.

Hope to be able to show the tree soon, there are a bunch of new crocheted snowflakes Bea, in Canada, sent early this year. For now,

Happy crafting!!!

Swaps

Just a small note to say thanks and show you what I got on two exchanges.

Past week my Annual Ornament from EMS got here. Was perfectly stitched by Ann, who also sent a lovely card, I believe that itself is an ornie, will find a nice frame to display it.


I told her how much I love Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, it's awesome how she chose the pattern before knowing this fact. Now I can hardly wait to set up the tree.



Kay, from Ravelry, sent me a gorgeous knitted dishcloth. Love the colors and the pattern she chose. Also got a lovely postcard from her home town and a bunch of yummy Baby Ruth, her favorite candy bar.


BTW, I've been peeking on your blogs, haven't always commented but this new job is keeping me busier than I though, specially because the students are not responsible with their assignments, so I have to stay up late grading their work. Next semester I'll schedule a bunch of written tests lol
