An exchange arrived

Just a quick one. Look what arrived for me this morning. This is my Early Christmas exchange from Melissa:

Ornie exchange from Melissa May 2010

I love it! I love the red tinsel around the edge. I have been quite ill since yesterday - feels a bit like tonsilitis but I don't have any tonsils - so this cheered me up no end. Hopefully off to Tracy's at the weekend for some rest and recouperation and of course stitching. This is if my DH can get back from Russia on time what with all the BA strikes. Thanks for your lovely comments. I have been trying my best to catch up on comments and getting very inspired in the process.

Next week I should have lots to show as I have a finish today but I can't show it yet and also Lynn and I are doing an exchange next week so there should be some lovelies to post. x

Away with the bugs, not needed here! Lovely exchange, I'm quietly sweltering here, the AC isn't working so nice to think about Christmas! Haven't forgotten address exchange!

Heidi said...

Hi Hazel! Sorry you are not feeling well. I have no tonsils either but have had a terrible and severe bout of tonsillitis. I was told often a tiny bit is left in and you can still become very ill from it. Have it checked out if it persists.

I love your exchange piece you received! What a cheerful ornament with that tinsel. And anything Christmas is the perfect medicine. :-)

Hugs from Holland ~
