Several of you have asked me about the LHN Peppermint ornament and my using the jingle bells..I will be honest with you..I failed to order the candy button when I ordered my chart, so I decided to use what I had on hand and that just happened to be jingle bells....I toyed with the idea of using nothing, but decided the bells with the bow gave it an extra umph.... So, there you have it....And, yes, I DO attached most all my embellishments BEFORE I sew up the sides of the ornament...It is easier for me to do it that way!
On Friday night there is always an exchange where gifts get passed around and "stolen", if you will...Just to make things fun of course~~ So, you know when you get a package, you better not get too excited about keeping it because more than likely, you will not be carrying it home with you...I happened to be one of the lucky folks and got the Hydrangea Box in the end..... It was from Lois P from TN and she had it full of goodies.... there was a beautiful ornament attached to the top of the box.....
And, inside she had filled it with Aida fabric of every color and size imaginable...along with a tin, DMC needles, DMC needle holder and a beading tray.....Wasnt I lucky????
And, here is what I contributed to the exchange.... I had used the "Going Green" theme..I included a Sweetheart Tree kit, a scissor fob, lots of green shades of DMC, a needlebook I had made, Victorian Motto overdyes inside..Kelmscott scissors, Thread Keep and Needleminder... I even put some all natural lip balm inside~~
So there you have it~~~ Tomorrow I will try to post a photo of all the wonderful goodies vendors contributed to Fall Fling..They were all so generous and I know each attendee was thrilled to get their wonderul goodie bag..
Hope you all have had a "Terrific Tuesday"!
