A lot of pictures...

I was so busy with Christmas holidays and Christmas gifts that I have not been posting for many days. Thanks for all your posts and mails, I really appreciated them.

I have a lot of pictures to share.

Before Christmas I sent the last envelope for my Italian mail art exchange. I used a lovely pattern by Little House Needleworks. I changed the pattern to stitch it on the envelope with the address of my friend. I used a white Aida that I hand-dyed with tea. The fabric inside is by Debbie Mumm. I really like how the envelope turned out.

Finally I can share the gifts I worked on during the past weeks.
I stitched two patterns to sew on two different recipes books.

The first one is a pattern I found on an Italian magazine.

The second one is part of the pattern Madame Poule by Tralala!!!

I also prepared some biscuits and I gave them as gifts with some little ornaments.

I stitched this ornament that I saw on a new Italian magazine.

These ornaments are by Olde Ornaments I by Sisters & Best Friends. I stitched them using only DMC.

I also stitched a quick pattern. It's for my Dear Diary quilt and it's the second block I finished. The first block is the one of Elizabeth MCGuire. This is the pillow dedicated to kindness and it's in the pattern Elizabeth McGuire.

I think I finished more than the patterns I would have liked to stitch before another order so I've already put my next order.
