Swaps with Anne

Before Christmas Anne from France and I arranged a swap with a Christmas theme and we have both finally received our ATC's.
The top one is the one that I received from her--I am always amazed at these tiny works of art that she does.



And here is the one that I sent her.
The fabric for the background was from one of the pieces that I was given when on holidays in Melbourne and no I didn't do the cross stitched Christmas tree--it was one that I purchased off the recycle table at the Guild.


Thanks again Anne for the swap.

Anne really does some detailed work! That ornament on the ATC is beautiful.

The background material you used is just perfect for a Christmas theme, and the little tree is so cute.

Beautiful swaps Doreen - I go cross eyed at the thought of that fine cross stitch.

Yes, Anne's work is beautiful. I guess next year you will have to get out the ole needle and floss to reciprocate with another one of a kind creations. Yours is wonderful and I love the red fabric and the tree looks very nice with the red background. Cross stich is really a breeze so long as you give yourself plenty of time and don't run into crunch schedules like I do.

Both cards are lovely. My eyesight has gone well past the point where I could do tiny cross stitch.

I am so far behind on blogs at the moment (my lap top has gone to God). So I am catching up on your lovely posts. Ann does such beautiful work and you do too!
