A Chatelaine Design, with silk and beads. The Alphabet in Fraktur. [Luckily she sent along an explanation, too.] Is it not just fabulous?
And because she knew that I am completely crazy for Christmas decorating, you can see the Christmas decorations included in her stitching and it's backed with a georgous fabric. Oh lucky, lucky me. Joke, my dear friend, thank you so very much. It's just beautiful.

At the moment I am knitting like crazy. I have started working on some Christmas presents. We have some little children in our families that we give gifts at christmas and I thought it would be nice to make something for them out of wool. So this is what I am doing.
I am working on finishing the knitting on the green pullover. When that is done I am doing to do the finishing on the pullovers over the weekend. I am going to put a zipper in them both which will be a challenge for me as I have never done it before. So wish me luck.
I will hopefully be stitching and knitting during this autumn and winter. I want to make more knitted christmas gifts for the little ones and will keep you updated. I am really looking forward to being part of the group making exhanges with all you wonderful ladies.
All the best,

First a picture of the outside of the stitcher's wallet
And then a picture of the inside. Look at all the details, everything is so well planned and thought of. I love it.
And a picture of the whole exchange.
Hope you are having a great day!
All the best

Today the birthday present Taija sent me, arrived. Her package was so carefully and thoughtful wrapped, I have to show you! She made me (what a skilled lady!) a selfmade notebook, and wrote she made it from begin to the end, all by herself.
She added some nice goodies, a piece of lovely fabric, two flossrings and pins. It was such a nice feeling, getting a birthday present after your birthday, it's like an extended birthday. Taija, thank you so much!

In fact, this little item went into the mail on Monday. So in perhaps a few more days it should arrive. For the up-coming Memorial Day week-end (American holiday remembering those who served in the military) our RV group is going away for the week-end. I'm sure there will be photos to follow. Hugs, Marne

To show you how beautiful the pincushion is, I need a seperate picture, and I also took one of the Chinese fabric. It is such a large piece I can use it to make a pillow, I guess, so next weeks I am going to search through my Chinese related charts :)

So yesterday, I could finally open up my presents! Here's my exchange from Joke for the Crazy exchange group:
She must have known my favourite colours are Autumn colors! I've got some quiltfabrics, a package with felt and threads and this gorgeous set of floss tag and needlebook:

Today the postal lady brought me a very special gift from Janaina. I wondered when I read her post, but thought "no" - but it was me! Hurrah! She was thinking of me when I was wandering around the Netherlands and stitched this beautiful bath towel and hand towel. So georgous and how very special to know that you were thinking so kindly of me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. [the photo on the bottom is the back side - not a wayward thread to be seen. I wish I could do that kind of work.]
Now what? I must ponder this one for a bit. . . . . . . .
Big, big hugs and thanks.
