I'm never checking my mail again

...until late, late in the day! It seems every time I check my mail right after it arrives there is nothing but bills. If I wait or forget until late there is a surprise for me! Look what came yesterday. This is my Valentine exchange from Michelle of The Shabby Stitcher.


Michelle stitched me the most beautiful scissor keep, a design by ATALIE. This is finished so perfectly...I wish you could see. Delicate colors and stitches. I am spoiled.

The little red scissors fit into a little pocket on the back of the heart. Divine stitching. Thank you so much Michelle!

If you are interested in exchanging with us go to the Holiday Exchanges blog for more information.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

What a lovely gift. I'm glad I hadn't seen Michelle's work before I sent her my ornament for a Christmas exchange! I would have been shaking in my boots.

Lucky, lucky you! (P.S. Email bill statements take the yuck out of going to the mailbox :D)

What a beautiful gift! I'd love to take part in exchanges but I'm just not confident that my finishing skills are good enough, and looking at some of the amazing finishing on people's blogs I'd hate to let anybody down.
