Private exchange

It’s been a long time since I’ve been here… But I am back with some news! J

Last year, Nina and I had an email chitchat and decided to have a private change between the two of us.  She sent me in December her exchange and was a darling to wait for mine few months.
I’ve stitched for her one of Shepherd’s Bush sampler’s  and finished in a box. Knowing that she loves fairies I’ve made a note book and added on the cover a freebie from Passione Ricamo. I’ve send her some extras too: finishing fabrics, linen, trimmings, silks, charts, charms, buttons, decorative pins, French Market Flea musical decorative set, shipping labels and stickers with her logo… The thank you email from Nina was wonderful. She is a special person and I am happy I’ve met her and we became friends thanks to blogging world.

(Most of these pictures are from Nina, I just did the editingJ)
