I got my needlwork smalls package from Cathy today. I am stunned at how wonderful this package is.
Missing from the photos is a tin of chocolate altoids. Heh.
The finishing on these peices is absolutely exquisite. I have never received a tin done like this before (though I have drooled at photos) and I am amazed at how clean this is. I KNOW I would never be able to do as good a job of this. Plus the extra goodies here are outstanding!
I must say that I am glad to be taking a break from exchanges for a while. I feel bad that I never give as fantastic packages as this. My finishing is never this nice. And believe me, I realize I am my own worst critic – but you really should see some of the peices I have done in the past. Most of the time it is because deadlines are the issue and I have to rush to get them done. Yay, my procrastinating self! Now, where was I? Oh yes…
I don’t often have the funds available to add on fantasitic goodies, either. I know it isn’t a contest and we only are obligated to send our stitching, but it would be nice to do so every once and a while. So I think I will just do things as RAKs from now on, and take my time. And send on extra goodies when I can. I really do love stitching for other people (as evidenced by the lack of stitched pieces in my home), and I don’t plan on changing that soon.
On to other things, I worked a bit on ES last night, though I spent just as much time frogging as I did stitching. Grrr! So very little progress was made, but it was progress, nonetheless. And the missing 415 will be picked up this afternoon and I should be able to get Osiris’ torso done. Hopefully.
