TOF Exchange



I have had a lovely parcel from Sally all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada.
The picture doesn't do it justice.

The exchange was a biscornu and I asked for it in Christmassy colours and with it she sent some threads and sweeties! The sweeties were pumpkin poops and pepperminty golf balls! And also some bath salts all were packed in little christmassy bags!

Mine was to be sent to Sue in this country...I sent a biscornu, a Lizzie kate seasons chart, little bow buttons, and a Cath Kidson pin tin.



I loved sewing the biscornu and wish now I had taken pics of it by itself as I did a pattern on the back too!
The TOF is a group where each member is given a DMC colour thread to send on members birthdays. My birthday is this month and I have already had 14 cards and little parcels.... ooooooh exciting I have to wait till 20th to open them!
