Really? Canada Post Managed What?

Last week on the 21st I sent out three parcels, two to the US and one to Australia. There was Heather's Neighbourhood RR to go out (US), my very late Blogaversary gift for Julie (US), and my Needle and Thread Ornament Exchange (AUS). Wouldn't you believe that they all arrived at their destinations within the last 24 hours? How did Canada Post manage that? Sometimes it takes forever!

So now, onto the items I can show you! First Julie's Blogaversary gift!


Reindeer

Internet Freebie (don't remember where I got it from)

Stitched one over one on 28ct White Jubilee



Next Alison's Ornament

Christmas Stocking
c1999 DMC
Design By Barbara Jackson
Stitched on 27ct Linen with DMC Cotton & Metallics


Back in 1999 DMC were putting out a line of annual ornament kits. Well it turned out that this idea only lasted two years. Which is such a shame. I have to say I'm impressed with myself over the finishing of this one... its a fully lined, functional stocking!


I've not really stitched much tonight. I think its half because I had stuff to do (framing jobs) and half because I couldn't settle down. I don't think I stitched more than an hour! Oh the horror of it all! I'm sure I'll make up for it over the weekend!


Here are the fruits of my labours from the last few nights. I'm sure my client will be pleased with them!

Great framing job - if your client isn't happy they need their head examined. :-)

Like the blogiversary gift too.

Isn't Canada Post strange? I've had similar things happen.

Your gifts are lovely Dani. I love the reindeer and the stocking is just the cutest. Beautiful framing. You couldn't settle to stitch cause you talked to me half the evening on MSN. Thanks for taking the time. You are a little bit of home.

I love your finishing of the stitching in your pictures! That is what I have the most problem with in my stitching. I love to stitch but the finishing is so hard for me! I truly admire your work!
