Gifted Gorgeousness with a bit of, actually not much, time to spare!

Well, sorry, Jo, two months running?  In both our dreams, sigh!

It was giving and receiving this month, by way of the Friendly Stitchers' Autumn exchange that Melissa deemed was to be a needle book.  By happy chance she was my partner too and I had the perfect small chart  from one of her favourite designers and even better, it was bought at her LNS in London, Ontario when Frances (no blog) and I visited her last May.

So......what did I stitch, well, actually two small charts, one for the back and one for the front. 

This is a Jeanette Douglas Design and that's all I can tell you right now because I can't find the chart!
The little cabin on the back represents Melissa's sweet house!

And this what I received from her......
The colours are so much nicer in real life and I received lovely thread, fabric and one of her special handmade cards too,  Thank you so much, Melissa!
Well, I'm off to bed, early start in the morning and Blogger really isn't behaving in a gentlemanly/ladylike way regarding photographs!
