Isn't this GORGEOUS!?!?!


It IS gorgeous isn't it?!?! Carol R. & I did a private exchange.... and look at this BEAUTIFUL cube that she made for me, in red of course! I'm just so thrilled to have one of these, as my quest for the pattern has been in vain. Carol was kind enough to offer to do a private exchange so I could stop wishing so hard for one! ;-) Wasn't that sweet of her? She used 35 ct Optic White linen & Glorianna Poinsettia Silk floss. She also made this lovely Swarvoski crystal fob for me, and it's lovely too. I haven't been doing exchanges lately, so this was a double treat - to get something in the mail & also to get something I wanted so much! Thank you again Carol, I LOVE IT! :-)
Oh, and the bottom is stitched too (same design as the top). My pic came out blurry though, so I didn't add it. Just know it's all lovely! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend filled with stitching!
