An Art Exchange

I'm sure you have heard, and are probably participating in, the Art Exchange that is going around.

Well I have to tell you, I think I broke my record with this one! I finished my piece up in... are you ready for this... just two evenings. And not even full evenings at that! I know, I'm as shocked as you are!

An embroidered, French Vanilla sachet.

I love this scent. Next to rose, I think it may be my favorite.

What's your favorite scent?

That is so lovely! I don't get around as much in blogland as Chasity, so forgive me for asking, but did you stitch that beautiful bird? Very lovely work! Hope you have a great day.
Warmly, Debbie

That looks lovely! Only two evenings? I don't belief it. I think my favorite smells are roses, lilac and lilly-of-the-valleys, oh and of course freshly baked bread, Oh and my love freshly showered LOL

This is a gorgeous piece! The colors are simply divine and that trim on the bottom is fabulous!!

And I am the lucky recipient. Alisa, you will formally hear from me soon. I have been overwhelmed with swaps...no excuse, but I want to be in a state of mind that I can let you know how truly grateful that I am for this lovely, lovely sachet.

It smells wonderful. It is really one of the prettiest pieces I have seen. The colors are so subtle, soft and lovely and I love birds.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I really didn't expect anything this incredible (in fact, I wasn't sure if this would work!) I hope to get a real thank you out very soon.

I am looking forward to meeting you in person!!!

Fondly,
Susan Reaney
