I stitched the ornament for my exchange partner a couple of weeks ago. Last week I received a parcel from a generous stitcher who was not my partner, however, she also had my name as her partner. I had no idea that I was her partner. Confused? Yes, we two were. I tried to clarify the situation with both my original partner and the organizer. It was further confusion after I emailed partner #1, a week ago, I am still waiting for a reply. :) One can only surmise partner # 1 withdrew from the exchange and I wasn't notified. Luckily I had not mailed out her parcel, however, my ornaments are personalised and they can't be re-gifted without pulling them apart, as you can see by the reverse side of that ornament, below.
I included a piece of hand dyed, Belfast, opalescent fabric and a couple of other small items not shown.
Now below, are the two wonderful ornaments I received from partner #2 Theresa.
Can you see the clever hair, it is three dimensional and so pretty. It reminded me of a small quilt I made some years ago, with dimensional hair on two of the wee dolls featured on that piece.
Theresa generously included a small zippered pouch and three packets of fabulous, Halloween coloured threads. Something greatly appreciated as they are very hard to locate where I live. Thank you so much Theresa, for a wonderful Halloween exchange.
I managed to get two different ornaments ready to mail to Theresa today. The ornaments chosen will be revealed when I hear, that they have arrived. Meanwhile these are the reverse sides of both ornaments. Enjoy.
