Stitch Red for Heart exchange received

I learnt today that Sharlotte received her Stitch Red for Heart exchange I sent her from the HoE blog. Here is what I sent her:

Stitch red for heart ##### ex Feb 10

I stitched this lavender heart pomander using Amon Ami Pierre freebie and also made this bookmark using stamps and embossing powders and inks. The bookmark says "Stitch Red" on the top of it. I learned fro Sharlotte's wishlist that she likes Christmas fabrics and rasberry chocolate so popped in some of those too. I wanted to keep the exchange simple but send something from my heart and I believe she likes it. She has much better pics on her blog including a lovely handmade card that my sister made.


Thank you so much for all the beautiful, encouraging comments about my bad week. It brings me to tears to read the kind, thoughtful words. I love you guys soooo much. I don't know what I'd do without this blog, I really don't.
Edited to add: go here for a great giveaway!!

Catching up on blog reading. That is a lovely exchange. Very well done.
So sorry to hear of your struggles while your DH is away. My DH did 33 1/2 years in the Canadian Military and was often away. It never failed that many things would go wrong while he was gone. I hope that things smooth out and fly right from here on.
