12 Days of Christmas Exchanges

I hadn't participated in a 12 Days of Christmas Exchange for a couple years, so this year I joined two!

From Berly at the I-Love-Cross-Stitching group, I received two skeins of Carries Creations floss and a box of Peppermint tea for Days 1-3.  I love that tea, and who couldn't use more floss?!

Day 4 - 28ct Evenweave
Days 5, 6, and 7 - Carries Floss and 32ct Linen
Day 8 - Skittles and Tea

Days 9, 10, and 11
Day 12 - 28ct Linen "Babbling Brook"
On Christmas Eve, I also received a gift certificate from 123stitch.  Thank you very much, Berly.  I enjoyed all the gifts.

From Greta at the Stitchers Circle group, I received:

Day 1 - Flowers Limited Edition Kit by Lizzie Kate

Day 2 - Cardinal Tweet Chart Pack by Just Nan

Hmmm... Both make me want to start a new project!! Must.... hold... out!

Day 3 - Crayola Erasable Twistable Colored Pencils

Day 4 - Cute "Peppermint" Soap

Day 5 - Main Street Station by LHN and Linen

Day 6 - Cardinal Ornament. So Cute!
Day 7 - Lemon Citrus Hand Soap

Day 8 - Notepads

Day 9 - Beads From My Wishlist

Day 10 - Snail Tape Measure!

So cute... inches on one side and cm on the other.

Day 11 - A Billion Dollars!

Day 12 - Matching Table Runner and Placemats

Thank you for the beautiful gifts, Greta.  I really enjoyed the exchange.

I have some of those Crayola Erasable Twistable Colored Pencils and I love them! I use them instead of highlighters. LOVE the cardinals - the ornament is soooo cute! So many goodies.
