Valentine's Exchange

I received an amazing package in the mail today ~ my Valentine's Exchange from Edgar. He stitched the most wonderful Valentine's Heart pinkeep, using a design from AMAP Victoria's Quaker and a combination of Soie d'Alger, DMC, Crescent Colours and WDW to stitch this. Isn't it spectacular!!! His attention to detail is awesome, I wish I had taken a close-up of the edging with the lovely lace and cording.
And here is a picture of all the goodies he sent along - some yummy looking Valentine candy, silk ribbon and a skein of Gloriana silk Luminescence, called very appropriately 'Valentines', and John James needles. What a lucky person I am to have received such a great exchange ~ Thank you, Edgar!!

I have already earmarked this pretty silk floss for a couple of Valentine's freebies that I have recently copied off the 'net. I can't wait to try it.

My SBEBB exchange parcel just went out in the weekend's mail and as its flying overseas, I don't expect the recipient to be getting it too quickly, but I'll post a picture of what I made once I know its been received.
