Exchanges, Chocolate, and Stitching...

....Who could ask for anything more?..
My Secret Cupid partner has received her gift, so here's my stitched contribution. This turned out to be a lot of fun using my Cropadile, ribbons, button hearts, and Kelmscott thread rings.


I also received a darling LHN chart "Chocolate Box" and Maxine card from Anne for mine. Can't wait to stitch this up.

And while I received Chocolate in charts, I also WON a certificate for a box of See's Candy from Parsley's giveaway. How awesome! Hmmm - better start dieting now!
I'm off to OK to see my brother's family. Played it safe with the weather by making sure my flight went through Dallas, instead of up north where they normally get all the snow. So WHERE does it decide to snow??? LOL
Have a great weekend!

Those are both beautiful - I have a close friend who is a chocoholic and she would be so annoyed not to get real chocolate, but if I put chocolate IN the box, she'd probably be pretty happy. ROFL
