Send a smile - Valma to Nia ... part II ;)

Hello ladies!
You've already seen photos from Valérie but I wanted to write my post anyway, just to say thanks to Valérie and tell how much I appreciated everything! =) I'm sorry for being a few days behind - not that easy to take some time to take photos and post... when you have a toddler around who just wants to play and put his hands on everything :p heheheh He's discovering the world, touch is very important but not with coffee mugs ;)

Valérie posted pictures of her beautiful stitching and finished tray, along with the mug, but there was more in the parcel:

Do I need to say how perfect is that design?! I'm so in love with it!! =) It's so adorable ♥ and the finish tray.. all together, precious!! I'm trying to find the perfect place for it... where my boy's little hands won't reach ;) hehehehe But I want to look at it all the time! :)

Thank you my sweet friend
Hugs&smiles to you,

Send a smile exchange - Valma to Nia

Hi ladies :D

I take the time to show you the piece I made for her...
It took 2 weeks to cross France and reach Portugal ! Such a long travel !!!
We thought it was lost !

But anyway it seems I succeeded in sending a smile :D
This pattern I had bought on MS web store (what a pity that it has now disappeared !!!!) seemed obvious to me :D

The pity is that I totally forgot to take a picture of the goodies, except that mug to suit with the tray I choose as a finish....

But maybe Nia will find the time to make a post on her blog :D

Anyway, what a pleasure to participate to this exchange !!!
I had almost forgotten how exciting it is to join such an exchange....
Thank you again to Preeti for all the superb goodies I received and thank you Nia for having organised this exchange.

I can't wait to see all the other pieces....
Hugs from France
