Finally the mailart is finished and posted to its receiver. Magda chose monkeys as a subject ( it was animals as a theme) and she loves Margaret Sherry. So I thought it appropriate to stich the alphabet monkeys, it is also the first letter of her name, a nice coincidence. I stitched on evenweave and used DMC threads instead of Anchor. I inserted a few skeins of thread, a small kit and a stitched Christmascard, after all it's the season!
I have the full set of DMC threads, only few Anchor's or Venus' ones. In Belgium needlework is rather expensive, so I always order my kits, threads, fabric and other haberdasheries online with sewandso. I'm very pleased with the service they do.
I'm a real stashoholic, have numerous kits an designs and loads of magz. My favourite designs are Margaret Sherry designs, especially the cats and chicks, Michael Powell and Bothy Threads cut thru's.
At the moment I'm stitching the Christmas exchange and then my commitments for this year will be done. Next year I'm involved in a birthday card list and I will try to take part in some exchanges, no RR's though, first I have to finish the ones who already came home. I hope to finish some of my own project and they always are put aside to stich for someone else!
