Lots of exchanges going on - and here are pics of gorgeousness received.
From Bonnie at PPTB , this lovely biscornu. It's quite heavy for it's size and I suspect it's filled with crushed walnut shells. Aren't the colors so calm and quietly beautiful?
This exquisite hardanger Biscornu is from Shay. I am in awe of her work - 'specially cause my own hardanger attempts are still so unsatisfactory, so I know what skill it takes to achieve this level of expertise.
Shay was also generous in sending extra prezzies. Thank-you so much, Shay!

Lisa over at the PIF Stitchers sent me this package, and I have to say, I love her presentation: oooh, the mystery and anticipation! Opening it, I found this ornament - absolutely adorable.
I'm pretty sure the last batch (yes, I am shamefully behind - but steadily working to catch back up) of biscorni I mailed out have all been received. PPTB is giving me a great excuse to stitch some of the neat charts I've collected.

Holy Mud! by Barbara Ana.

I stitched it with HDF silks by Vikki Clayton. These gorgeous colors were in a Detritus bag I received with an order - but it doesn't look like Vikki offers that option anymore :-(
That's all for now, dear friends and gentle readers. My thanks to all my fellow exchangers - you each brighten my days!
