Christmas in July exchange

Here's pictures of the wonderful exchange I received from Becky in the Christmas in July exchange at HOE. I love the ornament, and I received one of these from Andrea last year, so one day I may complete the set, as I'd love to stitch some. Becky also included some wonderful goodies, and a Shepherds Bush kit - look forward to stitching that - I love SB. Thank you Becky.

I've not heard that my exchange has been received yet, but it did have a long way to go.

The kitchen nightmare is keeping me away from the pc, and a normal life, but hopefully not long left. I will not give details here, but promise to show some before and after pics, for those that want them - Patti! I can't wait to have a working kitchen back - running water will be so nice. I'm even looking forward to cleaning up, and laundry!

I now have two weeks off work, so looking forward to trying to do a bit of chilling.

What an attractive opening page. I love the starry background, and the pictures of the Xmas stitching are lovely - although Xmas this early does give me goose bumps! As a lapsed cross-stitcher, I'm not familiar with a lot of the stuff on here - I suspect there's a whole new world out there for me to discover - lead me to it!

Wow that one gorgeous ornament you received Chris.

Hope the kitchen refit is going well and that DS is OK. Will email you later.

Not chilling Chris but STITCHING!! No point in cleaning anywhere because of all the dust that's going on right now. So you can sit and stitch with absolutely no guilt. And you're right I can't wait to see your before and after pictures. I love before and after pics.

I love the ornament and goodies you received from Becky and can't wait to see what you are going to stitch. I love exchanges - most of my stitching friends think I'm crazy but I'm not I promise you. It makes me stitch regularly and to deadlines - it's my best thing. Have a great holiday. Lots of Love Patti xxxx
