Christmas surprises...

BellaFella called me yesterday afternoon to ask if I knew anyone in Missouri. I think I might, I told him. And indeed, I did. My Christmas swap box arrived yesterday and I could not get home fast enough to tear into it.

And here is what I found...


But wait, there was more. As soon as I opened the box I spied a picture frame. I said to myself- Self, I sure hope that is some stitchery. And then I hollered with glee. It was. And it is the most special piece. I can't being to tell my Santa how much I love it. I am also outing BellaFella. Just pretend you don't see it.


My dear blog friend Sarah at The Simple Country Girl stitched this amazing piece for me with our anniversary date. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love it, Sarah. Adore it. It's perfect. Thank you so, so much for everything. I love it all. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family and many blessings. Thank you for making my holiday super special.


I'd like to thank Jenn at Bittersweet Prims for putting this swap together. Thank you, Jenn! Merry Christmas!

I am glad you liked everything. I was hoping that was the right date for your wedding. It took me going through all your writings to find your husbands name! Very well concealed I must say but I only found it one time and I knew I wanted to stitch that for ya. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
