Here is my first exchange piece which Elizabeth has now received and been lovely enough to reassure me that she likes it! Wow, instant relief to my anxiety!

I selfishly kept my embroidery scissors. I ended up adding another bead to the top of the fob where the cording meets the fob after I took this photo. I really enjoyed working this piece. On the back I added our initials over one.

I also sent Elizabeth some Gentle Art Thread that I had in my stash (unused but very pretty) and a couple of Australian themed bookmarks – animals and birds or flowers I think…
