What a Coincidence

Got a minute? Let me tell about my recent exchanges:

I took part in two exchanges on Hooked on Exchanging last month, a Christmas Ornament (any type of ornament) and a Christmas Smalls Exchange (something Christmas related but not an ornament). When I got the name of my exchange partners I had to smile. I had exchanged with this stitcher on another blog in the past and although the Christmas Ornament Exchange and the Christmas Smalls Exchange were hosted by the different moderators on the board I got the same name from each of them, Becky K. Now from past experience I knew that Becky loves reindeers and has a lovely collection of reindeer ornaments so I set out to find something she didn't already have. My choices were Prancer by JBW Designs from the 2004 JCS ornament issue and the pinkeep from Just Add Tinsel by Blue Ribbon Designs.  

 Yesterday I received my ornament from Nicole. The piece she stitched for me ........?

 I loved the design so much I  had already started to stitch one for me. Now I have my very own, Prancer, wonderfully stitched, finished and ready to hang thanks to Nicole.

So what of my smalls exchange piece you ask? I received from Aubree and she stitched me a Christmas Tin.

This design was making it's way to the top of my to-be-stitched pile, (which is very high esp. with Christmas projects) so when it appeared in my mailbox, stitched and finished by Aubree I was very excited. Thank you very much Aubree and Nicole.

Coincidences the same exchange partner for 2 different exchanges, receiving the same design that I had stitched and one that I planned to stitch... Oh, did I mention that both of the stitchers I received from live in Canada?

Thanks for stopping by, come back and visit soon.
