SWAP FROM Rita in Hungary

A few days ago, I received a parcel from Hungary! It was from Rita as "SWAP" gift!
I have never talked with Rita before, and I didn't know who was my partner, so I was so thrilled to open the box!!

Box was so beautifully wrapped with beautiful tissue paper and ribbon, so I carefully opened it!

When I opened the box there ware a lovely card, chocolate, and these beautiful Biscornu and Fob!!
I couldn't take good photos of them in a dark house (my mum's house gets little sunshine...), so I asked Rita to borrow her beautiful photos instead of mine, then she kindly sent me these beautiful photos.
Thank you, Rita!

I was speechless, how beautiful her works are!!! They both are truly perfect!
I have never seen such a beautiful Biscornu before, it's so delicate and soft and just stunning!

I felt that she made them with her heart and very carefully, these works tell me about it so much!
I will definitely treasure them!

This past one year, I found so many Hungarian and Lithuanian stitcher online, and their works always make me so impressed so much!!
I love their taste so much. I also love French stitcher's taste, their red works and finishing are amazing.

I'm so happy that I could have this opportunity to "meet" Rita, such a wonderful stitcher.
Thank you so much, Rita for these beautiful present!
And also thank you Nina for organizing this SWAP group!

I sent my SWAP gift for my partner yesterday, I think it will take about a week to get there!
I do hope she will like what I made!
Take care and have a lovely day!
Thanks for visiting and Happy Stitching!
