Happy Easter Everyone!!

As promised today's post is all about my Easter exchanges! I joined three exchanges for Easter, a biscornu exchange, a stitched card exchange and a secret Easter bunny exchange (similar to secret santa)

Here is what I sent my biscornu partner:

stitched on 14ct opalescent pale yellow aida with DMC threads, not to shabby for a first attempt at biscornu!

And here is what I received:

For the card exchange I sent this:
design taken from cross stitch card shop and stitched on 14ct white aida using dmc threads.

And I received this:
I love this little felt bag, and the chocolate eggs were just yummy!!

Finally for the secret Easter Bunny exchange, I sent this:
the pinkeep is a free lizzie kate design from the website, stitched using dmc threads (own choice in colours) on a scrap of fabric from a grab-bag at a show.

And I was lucky enough to receive:
Again the chocolate egg was very yummy as it was filled with chocolate covered cornflakes & jelly beans!! I love Ty Beanie Babies & the biscornu is so funny that I can't help but giggle every time I see it!!

Wishing everyone a very happy Easter weekend &
happy stitching...
