Autumn Exchange From Leena

Look what has also arrived at my house :-)

Leena from Finland :) my seasonal exchange partner, tells me that this second exchange she has stitched for me, in our series of four ...... is a sampler from an old SANQ magazine - Winter 2002. Leena has adapted it (very cleverly,  I might add ) to become a scissor-case.   I have a few SANQ magazines and love the style of some of the projects in them, so really, this is a superb choice for me for Autumn :-)

The Inside, look at these gorgeous, rather special, petite Bohin scissors Leena sent to me too

The back, personalised with my initials

2 of the packages that came were for my little DD and DS they are so excited to have something come too :-))

Thank you so so much again Leena for this beautiful stitching you have done for me and for all the extra things you sent for us to enjoy, you are very thoughtful and kind and we love it all :-)

Helen, this is so beautiful. What a wonderful way Leena has interpreted this design. I love the motifs and the colours and how lovely that it holds such a pretty pair of scissors.
What a pair of excited girls you and Amy must have been when you saw the treats for both of you and how thoughtful of Leena to do that :>)
Warm wishes, Angela

What a wonderful gift - the colors are so lovely. They make me miss the autumn season.

Your ornaments are delightful - I especially like the mitten. Now that I have finally been able to make a pinkeep maybe I can try things like that. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! You have been in my "inspirations" list for a long time!
