2010 Christmas Exchange #1

This year for the first time I dipped my toe into the World of Exchange (WOE). As the acronymn suggests I have been harboring fears that my exchange partner would end up being disappointed in the box I would send.

But, thru an exchange board, I met Lorrie, another exchange newbie, who was sharing my same nervous concerns. We decided to do a private exchange. And look at my box full of goodies! (please excuse the bad picture-I had 2 and this was the best one)

The actual box is in the upper left hand corner-Lorrie painted it and put a copy of one of my samplers on it--that was a delight to see! She made me a beautiful pillowcase with my favorite color-pink-as the accent. Every item she included was a delight and more than I could possibly deserve.

Thanks so much again, Lorrie! (Did I tell you that I have already used the HDF overdye silk on a new project? Tune in tomorrow to see it!)
