And they keep rolling in…

When I got home yesterday evening from dinner at my parents house there was another package waiting for me. This one is from my fathers sister Bjorg:

I got two kits from Permin of Copenhagens Hardagner collection. One is a small bag and the other one is a small pillow/pincushion. One kit from Eva Rosenstand, a keychaine kit, Snowmen With Quilts by Ursula Michaels and Stitcher’s Wardrobe by Sue Hillis Designs.
What a wonderful package! I am totally at lost for words!

I also wanted to share with you a little biscornu that I did for my friend Tracy that I stayed with while I was at my stitching retreat in Texas. Here is the front, and here is the back. It is a tiny little thing but I think it turned out very pretty with the Six Strand Sweets floss in purple. Purple is Tracy’s favorite color so off course that is the color I choose :o)

Three Friends by The Drawn Thread, 3 Crescent Colours Floss and a piece of fabric from Sugar Maple Fabrics called Angel Dreams. It is just gorgeous!

I am not sure what I will do with my day. I am probably going to the Flea Market with friends that are here from the States and then I am going to dinner at my parents house. Can’t wait as my mom is the best cook ever!

I will probably spend my evening stitching on the biscornu that I am making for the biscornu exchange in my Icelandic stitching group. So off course there will be no pictures until it is sent and receaved.

I took pictures of the ones I have gotten so far and decided to share them with you all.
