Christmas ornament exchange from Lisa!


I received the most beautiful Christmas ornament exchange from Lisa (NZ) today! Thank you so much Lisa, it is wonderful! I was so happy to receive it and I know that Lisa was a bit worried as it took more than three weeks to arrive.

Lisa stitched a beautiful Christmas tree and finished it into a pillow and I love it :) The design is stitched with a hand-dyed thread and it is actually green, I have no idea how I managed to take a photo like that. All the other colours in the photo seem to be ok, but the ornament looks blue to me... Anyway, it's fantastic and so is the finishing! The green colour in the fabric is exactly the same than the thread and even the buttons are covered with the same fabric.

Lisa also sent me lots of goodies - two lovely fabrics, a calendar, a hand-made card and Wildflower soap from New Zealand. Thank you so much for this exchange, Lisa! I really, really love it.

Tänään postissa tuli tällainen yllätys, SBEBB:n Joulukoristevaihto. Lisa Uudesta-Seelannista pisteli minulle ihanan kuusen ja ompeli sen kauniiksi tyynyksi. Oikeasti lanka ja tyyny ovat enemmän vihreäsävyisiä, mutta jotenkin onnistuin ottamaan sinisävyisen kuvan niistä, vaikka muut värit kuvassa ovat kyllä mielestäni oikeat, omituista...

Paketti teki matkaa kolme viikkoa, ihana kun tuli perille vihdoin viimein. Lisa lähetti myös kaksi kaunista jouluista kangaspalasta, käsintehdyn kortin, kalenterin ja hyvälle tuoksuvaa uusiseelantilaista saippuaa.
