Cross Stitch Swap, Sent & Rec'd :)

What a fabulous swap package I received from
my no-longer-secret partner Nataly!
I mentioned that I was taking part in my first ever
cross stitch swap over at Stitched With Love Exchanges
and we were not supposed to post any
pictures until everyone had received their packages.
Well this morning I got the green light
to go ahead and post!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!
Do you see all that red?
Do you see the cherries
and the Mary Engelbreit goodies
and the rick rack
and the buttons?
You could say she "hit it outta the park" on this swap :)
Just look at this lovely cross stitch she did
and I love black frames.
Matches my home perfectly!
THANK YOU Nataly....
You Rock!!!

Here is what I stitched and sent out to my partner, Lainey.
She love sheep and snowmen
and she loves pinks, lavender and pale blues.
 I added some french knots to "Flanagan"
because I thought she needed something "extra".
I mean what girl doesn't love some extra sassy?
 I also stitched this little snowman pillow
for her. 
I loves me some snowmen :)

It was a fun experience and I'm already working
on my second swap with Stitched With Love.
This one is Patriotic,
but I'll have to wait until it's all over to post pics.
