February ornament exchange.....

Motif from Jardin Prive "Christmas"
32ct dark red linen w/DMC
Mine  ........&.......  Yours

Happy 25th!  Yes it's that time again. 
I had this great red linen I've been wanted
to use and decided to stitch another motif
from the Jardin Prive Christmas design. 
Love it!  
I will say this was a close one and one
of the exchangers was about to be
disappointed (....that would be me!) 
I miscalculated the amount of fabric
needed and it was a close cut when finished
but I was able to piece it together. 
So mine is a little smaller but it is done!
Just love it! 

This month's lucky
exchange partner is........


Hope she likes it as much as I do!

I also got a nice surprise in the mail from Maggee
