Valentine Exchanges!

I participated in the SBEBB Valentine Exchange. I had received Katrina's name to send to! As I had read she stitches needlerolls... I took it upon myself to stitch her a needleroll for this exchange. I picked Mosey N' Me's "Stitchers Heart" which was a freebie, and modified it to fit a needleroll. It was quite fun to stitch!



I also included a few goodies in the package....



And... I was thrilled to open the mailbox and see a beautiful, rose covered envelope.... from Finland!! Outi had my name in this exchange, and sent the most awesome gifts! I opened the package to find a beautiful stitching pocket...



She had mentioned in the note that she hoped my scissors would fit in it. I was a little confused... the pocket is pretty good size. The confusion was quickly cleared, when I opened the pocket to find more fantastic goodies!! Inside was a scissor pocket and a needle case! I'm feeling truly spoiled! I have a little pair of red scissors that will fit perfect!



And... not only did I get this beautiful stitching set... Outi included a chart from my 'wishing list', and two wooden hearts! (they are hanging in my dining room window!) Thank you, Outi!

I have signed up for a few more exchanges... I love trying to figure out the perfect thing for my 'secret partners'. I know it's a 'hit or miss' kind of thing... but, hopefully I hit it right more times than I miss! LOL

Thanks for reading and your comments... they are much appreciated!
