Needle Minder Exchange

Hello everyone!

Today is the Big Reveal for the Needle Minder Exchange organised by my friend Mii Stitch.  The idea was to send a needle minder, a stitched gift and a skein of DMC floss.

I was lucky to receive my parcel from Carrie of Crafting Paws blog and she really spoiled me!  Look at all these goodies...



Not one but two needle minders, and not only that Carrie included a note to say that she had made these herself! Two beautiful autumnal threads...



...and such a cute fox ornament!



Thank you Carrie, I truly love everything you sent and feel completely spoiled!

I sent my parcel to Lorynn but don't know if it has been received or not.  She lives in Florida so I'm hoping that she and her family are OK and that my parcel has made it safely.

I won't post a photo just in case it is still en route.

Thank you Mii for organising this fun exchange!

Until next time

Justine

I keep scrolling back to look at these gifts!! I am amazed that Carrie made you those needle minders! wOw! Yes, I can well imagine it may take a while til you hear from Lorynn in Florida. :(

Lovely gifts, the needleminders and ornament is very pretty.

Carol said...

Such nice gifts from Carrie, Justine! I do hope your package to FL arrives safely--there is such devastation in that state (including my in-law's house :(

Needleminders made personally for you are special! Cute fox stitch too.

What a nice exchange you received! I have been seeing lots of needle minders out there... may have to look into getting one or two! Thanks for sharing!

That little fox ornament is just so sweet, Justine. And two very needle minders. I particularly love the one with the rose. A great exchange. I have to go and have look at what you sent to Lorynn.

A wonderful exchange. I love the needle minders. Very sweet. I hope the post gets to Florida ok; so much damage there. I'm sure she will appreciate some 'happy' post xx

Mary said...

Love the needle minders! What a great idea...hope your package arrives safely. Mary

Rhona said...

Wow....those needle minders are amazing! Hope Lorynn is safe and well after the hurricane. Your parcel will be a lovely treat for her when it gets there....fingers crossed it doesn't take too long.

On my those minders are awesome Justine! You are a lucky lady.

Hope that Lorynn is okay and the package will cheer her up once she receives it.

What gorgeous gifts! x

Ooo how fun to have needleminders just for you! The Halloween hat is so timely but the rose one is beautiful! I hope your package arrives safely (and dry!). Florida really took a hard hit (not as bad as the poor Caribbean islands) so I imagine things are a little slow there right now.

Julie said...

The needleminders are very special. A truly lovely parcel.
Hope you had a lovely holiday and all is well with you.

Justine, you received such lovely exchange gifts. I really love the needle minders...adorable!!! We live in Florida too and the state has been hit hard. I do hope Lorynn is doing well. I have not been on the computer myself for at least 11 days because the electricity was off and then it came back but the internet stayed off. So happy to be able to come by and see your lovely exchange. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

What lovely goodies you got, that fox is so cute! Lorynn sent her exchange to me, and I'm also a little worried about her.

Thank you so much for the goodies! I received them yesterday and I absolutely loved them! And thank you so much everyone for your well wishes! Between no power/cell service from the hurricane and then traveling, I never really had a chance to post anything til now.

Katie said...

Great exchange. Love the needle minders. The fox is too cute as well.
