Winter Stitching - Results Show!

Yesterday you got to see the 'where', now it's time to review the 'what'!

It was a BIG old list I posted way back when, and it's taken ages to locate everything, but I have had fun gathering the pictures to link up with Sarah and the Winter Stitching finale over at Fairy Face Designs.

And what a great swap mama you were too, I really enjoyed the Mouthy Stitches swap and am eagerly awaiting the next round! And I have to know, what magazine/book is that with the monsters? I am in love with the one you made for your dad, he is so cute in a grumpy sort of way :)
