Happy New Year and Exchanges

 Happy New Year!!! I hope today is a lovely start to 2013!! We are having a nice day, a little relaxing, a little cleaning, a little stitching and soon homemade Chinese food. YUM!

I recently participated in my very first exchange with the Stitched with Love Exchange group ran by the lovely Lainey! It was a wonderful experience and I am thankful for Lainey's hard work and my wonderful exchange partner Dawn. She really spoiled me and I LOVE everything that she gave me!! Thanks again Dawn!
 I had Lainey as the one I was to stitch for and this next picture is what I sent her. I stitched her the Let it Snow ornament (but made it into a pillow) from the 2010 JCS ornament issue. It is by CCN. I made a few changes and I even wrote them down, but do you think I could find that piece of paper?!!! Oh, well! ;o) Lainey said she loved everything and I am so glad!

I have quite a bit of Christmas stitching to show you and two new starts for next time.
Thank you for all of the lovely Christmas wishes! I hope that y'all have a very blessed 2013!!!

Love, Heather
