PS exchange & floss ring tag

Finally my PS exchange has arrived to Canada. It did took a looong time, nearly three weeks, i began to think it was lost! I really jump with joy when i saw the message of my partner, Suzanne on the PS blog that she received it. I had sent it together with my package to Lynn and Julianne. Both had received it within a week, i think Lynn got it after a couple of days, to the U.K. And to the U.S four days. How come to CANADA...nearly 3 weeks???












Pins& Needles Mattress Pincushion
PS Book No.115
32ct linen & DMC threads



I've completed them all together in a week, not the stitching but the finishing so i was able to take a picture of the three before sending them away. I can say it was difficult to part with them but hope all the recipients like it.





Here's a picture of what i received for the PS exchange, a cute scissor keeper fromGoldie. Thank you so much!








Floss ring tag
Romy's cross stitch patterns
32ct linen & DMC thread

Glad to hear Anna received this one on time for her birthday.



Well, it's the first time in weeks that we have a quiet weekend so we were able to sleep in and no rushing around!!

Natalija, yes i do have vase of fresh flowers every week, just realise three different ones as two in the living room and one in the kitchen. I love fresh flowers and also we have quite some friends or family walk in anytime for a cup of coffee or chat. I do try to alternate with plants sometimes when fresh flowers are getting expensive or we are not home that much to enjoy it.

I hope everyone's having a good weekend!

Everything is lovely, Mylene! As for the shippment to Canada, I have a lot of international customers, and Canada always takes about three times as long as it should. Not sure why, but happens everytime!

Really nice finishing on the PS pieces. You got some nice things in return too.

And mail to Canada takes longer to get there from here than to Europe, Asia or Australia and sometimes S. Africa!
