Birthday Threads......the final installment

As I've mentioned before, I am participating in a birthday thread swap this year with nine other stitchers.  Today I received these from Bernadett who lives in Serbia.

I am working on quite a few Christmas ornaments so I know the green DMC will be put to use soon!  

Thanks Bernadette!

Birthday Threads (Part 2)

Last month I posted about a birthday thread exchange that I am participating in this year.  One of the participants, Lonneke, lives in the Netherlands.  Lonneke sent me a handmade birthday card and thread two months ago......but the package never arrived.   

Last week I received an envelope from the Netherlands.....Lonneke had mailed me a replacement handmade card and threads.  How sweet!  Take a look.....isn't that a cute card?  

The thread on the left is a DMC Pearlescent (Lilac), the middle thread is a DMC variegated thread  (Tropical Waters), and the remaining on right is a DMC satin thread (Aurora Blue).  I have never used Pearlescent or Satin DMC threads before so I am looking forward to trying them out on a future project.  

Thanks Lonneke!
