Second, I wanted to share a happy dance! My exchange piece is done! Here are some pictures - I don't believe my partner reads my blog at all, so I'm safe in sharing early. We made a lined bag and scissor fob for her. She loves "antique" bears, so I thought this would be appropriate. Both are stitched over 1 using DMC on 28ct ivory jobelan. I say we made this, as I stitched the bear, while DH sewed the bag using Dani's tutorial, and I made the fob including sewing it together, but DH did help with the cording - that needs more than two hands to do! Now to just get it in the mail tomorrow and pray that it gets there in time!
