Still stitching away on the exchange ornament. It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be, even considering I am doing it on 18 count aida. But that is not a bad thing--a lot of my ornies tend to end up so big. I should have it done by the weekend. Left-brain (the artist formerly known as HTB) is going racing this weekend down in Virginia, so I have some alone time to work on finishing. I feel a trip to Michaels' coming on, to pick up some goodies to put in with this ornie, but I'm a bit confused.

It's going to Australia, so it will be spring there. Great for it being spring, since Samhain is New Year, but I feel a bit silly putting in fall things, because it's not fall for my partner. I guess I should just do what feels right, and then she will use the other things as they are seasonally appropriate. But I guess the Halloween thing can be just as silly to them, celebrating the harvest when it's not their harvest. I did find some really cute "witchy" things that I think she might like. It's all very confusing!

Exchange partners usually like whatever they get. It's the thought that counts. And heaven knows you give these things an incredible amount of thought! Your partner is bound to be happy with your gifts.

You made me start thinking about that season difference... What about Santa visiting the whole world on Christmas Eve.. It would make it Summer in Their country... LOL Oh well.... Now I will be thinking of this all day. LOL

I agree with Annie, I think exchange partners are happy with whatever they get. I always try to get something from my country if sending to another country. I think I do remember reading on someone's blog, though, that they don't go crazy over Halloween like Americans and some Europeans do, though. ?!

Huh...I never thought of it that way before!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
