First Ornament Exchange Received - On My End

Well all of my ornament/Christmas exchanges made their way into the mail today and they are whipping their way at a snail's pace (cause Canada Post is s-l-o-w) south of the border.  Two are individual exchanges set up with McKenna and Shannon through their blogs, the third is through a Facebook group I belong to.


Today I received the first of the exchanges heading my way.  This one is from Steph from my Facebook group, it came all the way from England!  Its just lovely, the fabric is sparklie and the chocolates... well they're long gone!

So hopefully in a week or so I'll have three reveals for you!  Finally!


Today I put a beaded ribbon edge on my last little pillow ornament.  So I need to do another assembly line of ornament finishing!  Probably this weekend!!!
