12 Days of Christmas - SC Style

This year I'm participating in the 12 Days of Christmas Exchange sponsored by Stitchers Circle. Here's what I received (The images can be clicked on to see a larger pic):

Finally on Day 12, I looked at the card that was sent along with the gifts and found that they were all from Lizzie in Scotland. Thank you very much, Lizzie!

Day 12

Beautiful embroidered table doily!

Day 11

Tartan Cosmetic Bag. This is pretty good sized, and I'm thinking about putting stitchy stuff in it :)

Day 10

Chart & Bas-Relief Sculpture from The Friendship Collection

Day 9

14ct white aida with little silver specks in it. This is great! I had some of this and used it all up. Now I have more. Yay!

Day 8

I just *love* this! It's a little felt-lined metal jewelry box. On the top is where a stitched piece goes. I've never seen such a piece.

Day 7

Egyptian Pin Cushion Kit by Anchor

Day 6

28ct Evenweave. I'm thinking this would make a nice hand-dyed piece!

Day 5

It's a magnetic notepad! I don't know what kind of cow(?) this is, but I'm assuming they're found in Scotland.

Day 4

Anemones Scissor Fob Kit by Textile Heritage. I love their kits!

Day 3

Fuscia Bookmark Kit. I've seen this stitched up recently and it's really pretty.

Day 2

Two skeins of Six Strand Sweets: After Dinner Mint & Jawbreaker, both were on my wishlist :)

Day 1

Two skeins of Victoria Clayton silks in Aquamarine and Bird Feathers. I really like them!

Lovely goodies, they will be fun to stitch with. Looking forward to seeing what others you have. Glad your presentation went well and hopefully your final went well also.

Nice gifts. Isn't it fun to do the 12 days of Christmas. We did that at work one year and had so much fun with it. We got so creative with coming up with gifts to either make or buy.

I'm loving seeing all the goodies you're getting in your different 12 days of Christmas, such a fun idea. Your earlier finish of Rudolf turned out so cute, his little nose was perfect. :)
