Spring Exchange flashback

In all our exchanges I always ask everyone to send me an email letting me know that your parcel was posted and also to attach a photo to your message. The reason for wanting a photo is to make this post, a flashback with all parcels from our exchange - and this way no one forgets to actually take a picture before posting ;) ehheeh

Our Spring exchange took a little more time to close because, as everyone already knows, one member is MIA (missing in action). We never heard anything from Lorraine, she's still a part of the group and we hope to have some news from her in a near future. Meanwhile, a few ladies put on their pixies shoes and sent gifts to Noni, instead of waiting by her empty mailbox we wanted our friend to smile :) Thank you ladies! Thank you all for your kindness and friendship, stitchers are the best!! ;)

And thanks to all of you who joined the fun and made beautiful gifts to share!! :D

PS : I have one question....did Lu received a thank you from Lorraine ?? :-/

♥ Nia said...

We all made different things and we are always learning with each other :) I think all parcels are getting better and better!!! :D
Cards are something that we can make too sweetie, it was one options for the finish :)

No, there was no feedback from Lorraine. It's sad but Lu didn't receive any email..
Let's hope that nothing bad happened to Lorraine, maybe we will hear something from her in the future!

I hope everyone was happy with this exchange, even Noni had four reasons to smile ;) hehehehe
Thank you ladies!!! :D

I loved the card Valma, it sits on my bookshelf in front of all my cross stitch pattern books - the perfect place for it. Also I went to your blog and read how you designed the pattern (with your husband's help) based on a Margaret Sherry design. So cool - here I thought it was just a Margaret Sherry stitching chart that isn't available here in Canada. With all the time and effort you put into the exchange, it's certainly more than "only" a card! Cheers :)

♥ Nia said...

Great answer from Amber!!! :) Valérie, I don't see a beautiful handmade card as anything less than any other piece but I agree that all your work and care made it even more special =)
When I said we are all getting better, I was talking about summer exchange where parcels are looking even more amazing! :) congrats ladeies!! :D
