Exchange Received & New Work from my dad



Hi all,
over the course of the holiday, I got so busy, I didn't get a picture posted of the exchange I received.
Michele had my name for an ornament exchange in one of my groups.
What a nice surprise I came home to one day last week. Not only did Michele send me an ornament that she stitched, but she also included some floss tags that are fantastic, 3 Christmas-y skeins of floss & a package of sticky notes. All of this was in an adorable snowman tin. She didn't know I love snowmen & tins!!!!!!Thanks so much Michele!
Next, I told my dad about a needle case I saw on someone's blog a while back. I thought it was something he might could do for craft shows. (they go to craft shows nearly every weekend in the fall & early winter)
I am attaching a picture of what he came up with! He said these will hold about 20-25 needles that are up to 2 1/2 inches long. He is going to sell them for between $12.00 & $15.00. If anyone is interested, let me know & I will put you in contact with him.
Have a great week!!! thanks for all the kind comments!!!!!!

Nice goodies! The wood needle holder is really neat. How are the grandbabies and you doing? I was thinking about you yesterday. Giving 3 baths everyday would wear me out. LOL! Are you watching all 3 by yourself?
