The first exchange I opened today was the Stitchers Christmas Choice. It came all the way from the UK to Wisconsin from Jayne Nelson. She noticed on my blog that I love peacocks and stitched for me Holiday Peacock by Courtney Collection from Just Cross-Stitch Christmas Ornament 2010. It was finished with peacock feathers!! It is already placed on my revolving Holiday Tree and I absolutely love it. Thank you so much.

The second exchange I opened today was from Edgar. It was from the Summer Exchange. It took my breathe away; it is such a beautiful Pinkeep!! It was even sent with a stand. The pattern is from One Goode Huswife and is called One Bird Free. DMC was used on 36 ct vintage linen.
Thank you so much!!
Recent HoE survey results netted a significant demand for finishing tutorials. Today I added a new one in the links below... a fail proof way to finish an ornament that is perfectly square with professional polish! Please check it out! It is called "Perfect Pillow Ornament Finishing" ~ Carol
