...EMS Italian Mail art Exchange&MSRR....

Yesterday I received this wonderful autumnal envelope from Bea for the EMS Italian Mail art exchange…this is the first time a received the stitched envelope without a paper envelope as a protection and it’s marvellous…my mum an Alice DD pick up the envelope and they were so amazed that they immediately phone me thrilled to tell me I have received a beautiful autumnal x-stitch envelope…I like the Lizzie&Kate design she had chosen and the gift she send me a DMC variations skeins and a lovely bookmark…thank you very much Bea :o)



Last Monday I finished also the Hen for Janaina fabric of MS RR..this is the first time I stitched a chart twice (one in January for Alice and one now for Janaina) but I enjoy it….the only problem with MS chart is the back stitch... I hate backstitch but for MS chart this is a necessary evil :o)…it was really worth it!!!



My renovation is slow at the moment…my new house seems like a Gruyère :o)
Thank you very much for your comment on my Garfield…
Have a nice week end :o)

Ciao Chiara,
in effetti dalla tua foto ho visto che il timbro ha sciupato parecchio la busta. Non credo fosse mai successo prima...mi sa che hanno un po' esagerato con quei timbri. Sigh! Mi dispiace.

The mail art envelope you received was great. I don't know how you all are brave enough to send them through the mail unprotected like that though, I'd worry and fret the entire time.

The Hen is so cute, MS has such fun projects. Congrats on finishing it a second time.

What a lovely MA piece from Bea! She always does such lovely work, doesn't she :) and that hen is such a hoot - forgive the pun, but I couldn't help it :)

Thank you Chiara, for your warm-hearted response to the birth of Robin... :D

I missed seeing Portobello when I visited London a few years ago, which means I'll simply have to make a return visit! :D I'm so glad you had great weather and a wonderful time there.

Thanks too for your words of sympathy. They really help. :)
