Lovely Mail Days

I've gotten a couple wonderful packages in the mail this week...I received both a Valentine exchange and a Santa ornament! 

First, the Valentine.  This was stitched by Diana, using Gloriana and Dinky Dyes silks.  She says the pattern is a freebie from GiGi.  It is absolutely gorgeous!
 I also received my Santa ornament, stitched by Edgar.  I've admired Edgar's stitching on his blog for quite a while now, and I'm thrilled to have something of his for my very own!  This pattern is from Mary Garry, and it is just too cute.  Thank you, Edgar!
And finally, my progress on the Stag Sampler.  I know, I said I was going to put it up and get out a WIP, but this just keeps calling to me.....

Lovely gifts! The Valentine is so pretty. I've also admired Edgar's stitching and you are so lucky to have something done by him.
Great progress on the Stag Sampler too!
