Christmas Ornament Exchange

On Friday, I received a wonderful package from Mylene! Absolutely love seeing packages in my mailbox instead of bills! This is the second time Mylene has stitched for me for the HoE Exchange Group and she outdid herself again. She stitched up a wonderful little pillow ornament with beading around the edge. Here is a snap of the front of the ornament:
I absolutely love the beading around the edge. I must learn and practice how to do this! And here is a snap of the back where she stitched out *Merry Christmas*
I love this design but I'm not sure who it is by. I think the two shades of green in the tree add real dimension. Here is a photo of the whole exchange with goodies!Sorry for the overflashed photos...hard to get good pictures at night with my little camera. Mylene included a little stitched holiday card with a teddy bear on it, some chocolate, a piece of nice blue "Noel" fabric, a JBW Designs Christmas Tree chart and a package of embellishments. Yay! Thanks Mylene. The ornament will grace my tree this year and all the goodies will be put to good use or eaten! :)

I am so glad to hear it has arrived safely and that you like it, Valerie.
I am sorry i haven't written about the chart on my card, just as Edgar said it's the recent PS freebie.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
