Private Ornament Exchange With Barb.

My lovely friend Barb and I decided to do a private ornament exchange which we had planned to have in the post by 1st December. Unfortunately we both ended up being a little behind so mine arrived with Barb on Saturday as did hers to me :). 

This is what I chose to stitch for Barb although it wasn't my first choice or my second lol!  Anyone who knows Barb will know she loves sheep. A girl after my own heart!

Private Exchange for Barb.

I am so happy to say that Barb loves it :). You can't see it on the photo but I added a little bird peace charm to the gingham bow. 

And this is what Barb stitched for me and I absolutely adore it! It has my favourites on it, sheep and a snowman, and of course it's Shepherd's Bush. Thank you so much my dear friend. 


Barb has been a wonderful SAL partner and friend for many years and I hope it long continues. 

Speaking of our SALs I have almost finished both Tricotine and Wicked Since and once I've got some making up done on a birthday gift I am hoping to pop a few more stitches in and get them finished. 

It's that time of year again as it's my birthday on Friday! It feels a little flat after the excitement of my 50th last year but I'm just thankful I have my wonderful family and friends.

Be back later in the week with, hopefully, my finished ( proably not made up! ) Tricotine and Wicked Since.

Until next time.

Stay warm those of you getting cold weather right now and take care.

With much love.
