Winter Exchange From Leena
This is the wonderful Winter Exchange that I have received from Leena, this is Part 3 so it means only one left to go now, which is a bit sad.
However :), for this time Leena remembered that I really admired a house exchange she did for another blogger (Katrina) using what was called Mixed Media. So in view of that Leena wanted to do me one of my own and this is the unique result. Including... the 'Bobbin Lace' which was made by Leena herself and I think it is just gorgeous. Leena says she is only learning this new skill, looking at this she will soon be a master !! :))
The backgound, if you look closely has little silver symra stars , tiny white beads...they are the snow gently falling against a snow filled sky. As one snowflake gets closer, real closer, look now, you can see it in all its glory with every detail (the lace medallion). The flowers I thought might be 'Love in the Mist' perfect for keeping warm on a cold winters night ;-) See the snowdrift along the bottom (Bobbin Lace) where the winter flowers gather. Look up and you can see the glow of the candle light (the wording). Jack Frost has made some patterns in ice (the buttons) but.....look now , high, high up on the roof to see the frost and icicles glowing in the moonlight (the bow etc at the top). Here you see Winter all wrapped up in a breath of cool winter air (the braid around the edge) ........
Rightio ;-)) I will stop story telling now LOL !! Thank-you so much again Leena for this special, truly unique exchange piece and all the other things you sent , I love them all and the eggs have gone down very well with DD and DS :-))
See you all again soon as mine to Claudia should be arriving in the near future, until then thanks for your visits and stitch happy :-))
