Winter Exchange....

It has been so long since I have participated in
an exchange.   I have always liked the
Winter Seasonal Exchange so I signed up 
and was lucky to stitch for Dawn.

  I picked up a couple of these little pails at Target last Christmas from the Dollar bin and thought it
would be a neat little project.  I just had to
find the perfect design.   After a little bit of
figurin', SB Winter would fit perfectly and 
make a nice little stitching buddy.
SB "Winter" stitched on 32ct linen
w/ DMC
I just love these designs stitched on the
smaller count and I found some buttons in my
stash that I finished it off perfectly.    I was
a little nervous about the actual finishing
but think this turned out cute.
 Perfect spot for stitching stuff!
I didn't permanently attach the stitching so that
Dawn can easily replace for another season. 
I added a little pin cushion to the top and
attached it with a magnet so that 
it can replaced too.  I am so glad
that Dawn liked it.
I think I am hooked on this little pails....they
are just too darn cute.  I now want to make me
one.... I could kick myself for not
buying more of these!
