An exchange that never happened.

Sometimes things don't go as we wish.
Some months ago Ingrid of miistitch organised an Egg-change. That was to be a stitched piece in the Easter theme as well as some chocolate for Easter.
I made this. It is a Tralala free cross stitch pattern. I found it here. Made it and sent it to my partner Bernadette in France (no blog). She received it and enjoyed it. I sent some chocolate along.
And these little Easter wooden decorations bought from Tiger.
I waited for a long long time and nothing arrived for me though. I was supposed to receive something from Emma of  My creative Corner but unfortunately it got lost in the mail!
This is what Emma posted but never arrived!
What a pity someone else got it instead of me!It is so beautiful!Unfortunately Emma had posted it with simple mail. Remember it is better to post things registered mail so that you can trace them if and when they get lost!Anyway....
So when dear Ingrid heard that I didn't receive anything in the exchange she took it on herself to compensate me! She sent me a lovely parcel that contained all this! It was like Christmas in May!

 She stitched two lovely pieces for me!Aren't they gorgeous?
 She added lots of fabric, felt, threads, beads and buttons all in my favourite colours!And some candy which of course we (my son included!) really enjoyed!
Thank you so much dear Ingrid!

Πολύ όμορφα τα δωράκια σου και πολύ γλυκιά η σκέψη της κοπέλας να σου στείλει εκείνη πακέτο ως αναπλήρωση του χαμένου!
