Lucky Me!

Look what I received in the mail today from Becky:




Becky received my name for the Quaker Exchange on the Exchange Place EZ-board. We had to stitch a quaker design on lavender linen with purple/yellow threads. Becky finished it off with some coordinating purple/yellow fabric into a needlebook. Isn't it lovely?

The special handmade gift from Becky was more than enough - yet she also sent me a Kreinik kit "Because Nice Matters" (I'll enjoy testing out those silk threads!) and sampler key chain designs from Milady's Needle. The Busy Bee self-stick notes will remind me of Becky each time I use them and I think the mini memo pad might be just right for making notes on stash to be purchased. I'm touched by Becky's generosity!

I'm in the process of putting the final touches on my Quaker exchange gift for ??? (can't tell - it's a secret). Hopefully by the weekend I'll be able to post an update on my project!
