Maria, thank you for your comment on my work. Always nice to hear nice things about what we do. Have been admiring your work on your photos, such lovely colours on everything. I do follow your blog, so it's nice to meet up here as well.
Thanks for getting in touch. It is great that you are my partner in the exchange. It'll be great to get to know you. I have a few ideas for an ornament but do you have any requests? I have sent you a friend request. I will also email you my postal address.
Just in case you haven't seen my post on the Cross Stitchin Fingers Group, your partner in the Christmas ornie swap is Lynne in the U.K. I have emailed her suggesting she contact you by leaving a message on Your Page, but you can also email her at her Page. She is on the Cross S.F. members list as LYNNE (not Lynn Shaw from the USA)
